1 hello,
3 i used the amd64 2006.0 universal install with genkernel. can't believe
4 i actually got grub installed! i'm coming from slack and lilo. hardware
5 is a hp compaq nx 6125 turion64, ati chipset, laptop. there were a
6 couple of problems,
8 1. when i tried to emerge pcmcia-cs there was a problem with the
9 genkernel, something about 'in kernel ...'
11 2. acpi seems to be flakey. hasn't froze yet though. the laptop seems
12 slow. cpuinfo in /proc says 797 mhz? maybe it's throttled for battery
13 when it's on ac power? it's a turion ml-37, 2ghz!
15 3. really not getting this emerge thing. installing precompiled packages
16 for amd64. updated emerge to look in /mnt/cdrom as per install
17 instructions (networkless) did 'emerge alsa-lib' something happened for
18 a long time. it looked like it installed alsa-utils as well but i get
19 nothing for commands 'alsamixer' 'alsasetup' no asound dir in /dev???
20 after that i'm reluctant to go near anything related to X11.
22 thanks.
