Subject: [gentoo-dev] Bootstrapping Gentoo Linux with Lucent chipset PCI modem
Date: Mon, 01 Apr 2002 17:42:26
1 Hi,
3 I found the announcement of Gentoo 1.0 on Slashdot over Easter, and have
4 been reading your website.
6 I have a lucent chipset based PCI modem, this is supported under Linux using
7 the drivers at
10 The install of Gentoo relies on being able to download components from the
11 Internet, for this the modem
12 needs to be functioning under Linux. Is there a point in the installation
13 where I can build the required
14 drivers to continue the Gentoo installation? What would I need to download
15 in advance of this to ensure
16 it can be built? (I would expect I need all Stage 1 requirements, is there
17 anything else required?)
19 I haven't downloaded anything at this stage, is the gentoo-ix86-1.0.iso
20 sufficient, or would the
21 gentoo-i686-1.0.iso image be required?
23 Thanks,
24 Paul.
