Re: Macbook Pro(blems) with 3.4e

It works -
You have to log in as root - password root. You can also (if you are lucky enough to
get to use the keyboard at the grub screen) put the option nox at boot

cheers

[SOLVED] Re: intel 945gm and 1200x800 resolutions

I solved this problem ... by installing Ubuntu instead! Sorry guys. I've been using SL since version 3.2 but 3.4 was the end for me. I've really enjoyed my time with SL and Gentoo but I have to say with this release I really don't know what SL is for any more. People wanting a full gentoo experience...

intel 945gm and 1200x800 resolutions

High folks, I'm having problems getting my inbuilt 945gm to give me the correct resolution in SL3.4e - i.e. 1200x800 on my vaio SZ. The strange thing is that I use the xorg.conf file from SL3.3 which worked fine. Now I get only the 1024x768 resolution on the left of the screen. I guess this is somet...

My machine is a standard Mac Pro Core Duo from this spring and already has SL3.3 dual booting with refit and 2 partitions only - one for mac one for Linux. 1) First with the LiveDVD when it reaches the SL boot screen ...

Problem with gnome themes in SL3.3

Hi folks, does anyone else have this problem - I can't change my themes properly in gnome-theme-manager. The icons are ok, but the scroll bars etc are always the default ones apart from clearlooks. If it helps I get errors of the form /usr/share/themes/GorLila/gtk-2.0/iconrc:174: Unable to locate im...

Yep - I can understand that - but i'd recommend it in the long-run instead of messing around with ndiswrapper and it's less difficult than it sounds. If you follow the instructions at http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Compile_a_Kernel_Manually my previous message will make sense. Most of the options you ...

Projectors and other peripherals

Can anyone answer this? I have SL 3.0 and want to use a projector. The projector doesn't pick up my laptop (i.e. "no signal") even though it will if I use the windows partition. I have a new kernel (I had to rebuild it to install ipw3945) but don't think I have unselected anything but some wireless ...

ipw3945

You don't need to use ndiswrapper, you can just emerge the ipw3945 module. To do this you have to first recompile the kernel without support for IEEE802.11. That requires emerging the sources; Then go to the cource directory, make menuconfig, go to the bottom and select "Load an Alternative ..." and...
