Question does gentoo 2004.2 already come with x ?


im going to use a stage 3 tarball installation along with a snapshot of portage. and ill be following the default installation guide..what im asking is that if i follow the quide word-to-word, will i also get x along with the fancy gui or just a cli based system ? and if i dont get anything, what should i "emerge" to get a gui ?

The guide will tell you to emerge whatever you want, if you want KDE do "emerge kde" and X will be installed along with it.

x isn't installed with emerge kde, sorry. It wasn't at my place, had to do it manually. Anyway, it should be enough to emerge xorg. But it doesn't come with anything preinstalled .

oh god... Did you by any chance install gentoo without having an 24/7 broadband connection? Dude you are in deep shit now . Yes, the universal cd should suffice in this case, but it won't in many others. I hope you have a lot of patience reserved .

If you DO have a broadband connection and just don't know what you have been doing the whole time you were installing, you should do
emerge --sync && emerge xorg && emerge -u world
you should then your comp on for the night

You should also turn to the gentoo forums regarding the installation and stuff. The guys are a really nice crowd and you won't get flamed . Cheers!

I really don't think you are gonna get that... i live in europe and shipping would cost me more than all the cd's i would send you together . Try to get some asian folk to send them to you, or download them overnight at your school. I'm sure your teacher would agree if you just told him what you were up to. Bandwidth's free for schools, at least here .

Good luck though,


Gasper
