Out of the Box, MyExperiences

Postby joost » Fri Nov 17, 2006 12:25

Hi people,

First off, thank you cvill64 for your assistance last night (through the irc)

I noticed that i needed to adjust the resolution and refresh rate at boot:
sabayon res=1024x768 refresh=75 (in my case) solved a blank, black out of range screen.

Everything worked out perfectly, i splitted my linux partition in 2, in order to create some space for sabayon. (45 gigs).

After that i started the installer, wich took almost an hour to complete (that's because allot of packes will be installed, in my case several desktop mangers).

A few things i want to notice:

- startup time is very very long (my PC is a p4 HT 3.2gighz width 1gig RAM)
- Either the install did not save my DNS info i filled in, or i just forgot to fill it in. The problem i came across was setting this DNS value. There was NO WAY to fix that through the GUI.

It would be great to ad the gnome network settings manager to the built!

Thanks joost,
both problems, resolution detection and DNS configurations should be fixed in 3.2. I have collaborated upstream to fix networkmanager stuff.

for your boot problems, in /etc/grub.conf, remove the words "doslowusb" and "dolvm2" if you didn't use logical volume partitions

thx, ill try that on my next boot and report back.


//edit Yes it's a bit faster getting into the loading screen now.
Then a next notice would be:

After the loading screen, X starts as i see the familiar gray dotted screen and my X pointer. It takes some time for kdm/gdm (not sure) to load. While loading, i notice my Pc internal speaker making 2 beeps. Any clue on what could cause it?

i guess its a local hardware matter, but i was reporting things anyway..
