Windows has everything...

Back to my old computer...

Posted 03-20-2007 at 11:01 AM by serafean

Well, I got my hands on my old computer, and Gentoo was still installed.a little emerge --sync, and DB was updated, then a little emerge -u world and no computer for 3 days. but passed from gnome 2.14 to gnome 2.16, and many other upgrades.
After a bit of troubleshooting, its working like charm again.

A little more tweaking, and Beryl is here!!!! Those raindrops are really funny, and the wiper, LOL.
