Gentoox and Linux on CarPC

Post by chrisb » Wed Nov 09, 2005 11:59 am

Hi all..

Im trying to make a Xbox that runs normal Xbox on the first 10GB of my 300GB HD and the I want to install Gentoox on the last 290GB

Where do I start the partiotion table for the swap?

Im using Cheesypoofs 100% Native install guide.. Or is that bad?

And allso, should I use Gentoox Media Center instead?

My goal is to have a fully working Xbox for playing Xbox games, and have a Linux to run a Media Center to play audio and movies, and allso GPS..
Maybe going to use MythTV for Media center interface..

Yes, using the fully native guide is a bad thing for you. It renders the entire hard disk usless for playing xbox games. You need to format your hard disk to normal C, E, and F (no G) using normal methods that are covered at in the tutorials section. Then just perform an Native F installation and voila! 8-10 GB for xbox, 290-292 for Linux.

The search tool is your best friend! :D

**Warning: if you follow this tutorial you will end up with a very good inexpensive file ‘server’ you will there for NOT be able to play ANY Xbox games, dashes or anything remotely hookie, not only that it will take a certain amount of work to put it all back. This is purely for people with to much time, money and usually more than one Xbox (I now have three!)**
