Ok, so I just reinstalled Gentoo on my main machine, and I installed Xorg too (with the appropriate input drivers installed too).

Only I can't get it to work.

Blank screen
No input of any kind
No way of getting out of it without a hard reboot

It's almost as if the Xorg devs expect people to stay with the CLI after the installation of Xorg-fail-server version "Goonandscrewyourself".6

having fun with bash varaibles: indirect variable references

Well I recently started messing around with bash scripts as cgi scripts and was wondering how to pass variables in and what not.

The general format is "name1=val1&name2=val2". It turns out you can actually declare variables in bash using 'declare' and parameter expansion.

Pathology: Two Years of Linux

Posted 11-26-2009 at 06:35 PM by fullmetalgerbil

It was ok, but I wanted to try other distros and I used BLAG Linux for a while then wound up on Debian testing for a good bit. Then I went sorta apeshit and tried out about 20 different distributions before finally settling on Slackware which is still my favorite eventhough I'm currently running AntiX. Actually it's kind of a tie between...
