Pro installation Problem

Post by ManReal » Fri Jan 12, 2007 12:17 am

I'm doing an ftp install with Pro and where I want to have my evox dashboard with Linux. Not Native install.

The problem I'm having is that when I boot "gentooxx.xbe" everything happens normally, but then when I boot the FATX option and run "gentoox" all this writting comes to the screen and it gets to the point where it looks like the following:
----------------
Welcome to gentoox Pro v1.1 - ported to the Xbox by SHALLaX

Check out http://gentoox.shallaz.com for the latest news and HOWTO's

your network settings are as follows:
eth0:
inet addr:192.168.1.103 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

Pro login:

---------------

Like why on earth am I getting this? I'm using ssh to my xbox and I don't know what to do next. Like its asking me to login before the install? Why is it doing this? What would you recomend I do?

ANY HELP is much appreciated.

This sounds as if you have installed it correctly to me. As you are doing a pro install you will not have a window manager installed as standard so it has booted to the point of logging into you install. You now need to either attach a usb keyboard or ssh into you gentoox installation to install any software you wish to use. If you are not happy doing this I would swich to using the home edition as there is software install already to get you upto a window manager.
