Issues

Alright. Typing this to you from the Gentoo setup.

Kernel is 2.6.26-gentoo-r4, Gnome is working (iffy font stuffs though), sound is not. Wireless is sorta sometimes working, but mostly it craps out a lot after initial startup.

Google search results for this topic scares me a little though, so I will try to post some links to pages that *do* actually provide help, instead of just babbling on about the lackluster Linux talents of the writer...

Gentoo on the Thinkpad x61s - Progress

Posted 12-13-2008 at 01:46 PM by zsejk

So, I've made some progress with the Gentoo idea. The basic install went pretty well, following the installation book by Gentoo.

To immediately start putting my money where my mouth is, Gentoo will be put on my Thinkpad x61s (currently running Windows Vista Business 64-bit). I tried it before with some luck, but not a lot, as wireless and sound worked, but emerge crapped out after one too many builds. So in order to prevent this...

Ah, this is what I missed for all this time.... a sense of community! LQ has shown me the way again, after years of Windows slaving, it is time to return to the fold. I even got me very own blog now!



A brand new distro will be downloaded, and it will be installed.
