I recently purchased an Asus M6 (Centrino 1.6GHz), and did not want to bother
anymore with the Windoze Family stuff.
I wanted to install a modular Linux, which I could master and upgrade as I
I earlier tried muliple other distributions (Aurox, Mandrake), but I did no
longer expect to have any "straightforward" or "magic" install which was too
tricky to update in future.
I downloaded Gentoo 2004.2, started from stage3 (in a first trial), and
compiled a 2.6.7 kernel.
All was Ok, I even compiled X11 and kde and ati_drivers, to try employ at
best my Radeon 9700 graphics card.
My concern is about the CD-Rom on my own (very new) linux install.
When booting from the install boot CD-Rom, I have a /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 device.
But in the /dev of my hard-disk install, there is no such entry. So when I
chroot to it, I can no more see the CD-Rom device.
Maybe I missed something in the Kernel config ? This while, I followed the
indications provided in the Gentoo manual concerning kernel configuration...
Thanks by advance for your help
