Subject: [gentoo-user] Gentoo on Laptop: 2 problems
Date: Thu, 26 Jan 2006 22:22:20

I've been installing Gentoo on an IBM Thinkpad T43 and, while I've been able 
to get a mostly working machine, I need some help for fine tuning:

First (but not very important): I can't get the system to use a domain name. 
The domain name is correctly written in /etc/conf.d/domainname, but typing 
domainname returns (none). I can set the domainname with domainname "name of 
the domain" but this does not survive a reboot ?!

Second, I can't set the power managment in KDE's Control Center because "ACPI 
was probably enabled, but some of the sub options were not". I used Genkernel 
without using --menuconfig so I checked and it looks like everything has been 
compiled as modules.

Now my question is: should I recompile a kernel with the ACPI options compiled 
into the kernel, or load the modules?

Thanks for any hint,


The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
