Last night I finished transitioning my system over to a newly built, optimized and stripped LFS system. Soon after that I had installed (many, many, MANY) libraryies, XFree86 4.3 and Enlightenment. I'm one very happy linux geek at the moment.
Now I'm off to download the 2.5 kernel and try to modify the agpgart to support by via p4x400 northbridge so I can use 3d accel on my radeon 9700 pro.
wish me luck.
