No problem, your help has been great. Since the problems started I've been trawling the Net, and there are a couple more things I want to try before calling it a day. The access violation message for /etc/passwd intrigues me, so I want to have another go at that.

But I'm curious about something you wrote: "I can't imagine trying to upgrade a version that old". Are you referring to the kernel, or to the apps, or to both? I ask because I had previously upgraded a large proportion of the installed packages to their latest versions before starting your HowTo. As mentioned previously, I had the latest version of Compiz Fusion from Portage, the latest ATI drivers, the latest KDE 3.5.8, the latest GNOME 2.20, the latest versions of all the apps I use (OOo, Firefox, Thunderbird etc. etc.), and AIGLX was working (and was more stable than XGL with Compiz Fusion, I found). The kernel I had not touched: it was the original 3.4 Loop 2b kernel. But my installation was far from being what was originally installed from the 3.4 Loop 2b LiveDVD. So, by "old", are you referring specifically to the kernel?

kernel upgrades are never an issue

It's taking the entire project to latest. All the software. If I install 3.3 today and then went to world update it, omg........

Code: Select all

vash-laptop vash # emerge -upDN --world

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Your gonna have to follow the howto upgrade compiz thread on the forum as so much has changed in since 3.4 release. A world update right now is not fun period.

Well is there going to be a new Spin out soon or? I loved Gentoo but for some reason I could never get IPW3945 working on my laptop, and with this I got everything i wanted. Was hoping this would be my distro :P

why not just use it till you can get comfortable with portage before a world update??

a new spin is always in the works

Is this thread still valid given we are on 5.4 now? Sorry, had to ask as "world" command is deprecated.
Cheers, Big Ears!
