ArneBab,
Try to boot again to the command line. Then get a default xorg.conf
Code:

Xorg -configure

Go ahead and move that and rename it.
Code:

cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11
cd /etc/X11
cp xorg.conf.new xorg.conf

edit it and remove the keyboard and mouse sections plus the module references like this one;
http://dwabbott.com/gentoo-ten/intel_fix/xorg.conf

Then start kdm
Code:

/etc/init.d/xdm start


any luck?

ArneBab I will look into this today, I had others test with ATI and it worked but since we are using xorg-server-1.6 and no generated xorg.conf some may have issues like you, but xorg should work for most.


Many thanks!

Could you not use the generic uvesafb for example? Just run X on fbdev and it should work on nearly any hardware... :idea:

I do use it on my laptop for quiet a while now, as long as I do not play 3D games or have extreme screensaver it's OK.

Hello. I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop with a Core2 Duo 2060 processor. I tried to run the x86 x86_64 LiveDVD; everything was loading ok, it detected the intigrated intel video card and set the x11-xorg-gl renderer but when it got to loading kde it just hangs at a blank screen with a solid cursor in the top left corner. There is no error message, I'm unable to switch tty's or anything of that nature, the system is completely frozen so I can't get at the logs.

I know there is no hardware issues on the machine since I run XP on it all the time without any issues. Any thoughts?

Try booting with gentoo64



Comprookie2000: I tried your suggestion but the Core2 Duo 2060 is an i686 cpu (this is basically a Centrino Duo with Core2 branding for OEMs that does not have 64bit support), so it does not even start to load gentoo, It says this kernel requires x86-64 cpu right off the bat.

The LiveDVD simply doesn't like the Inspiron 6400 :?

I tried the Live DVD. D/L the x86&64 one, burned to a DVD R/W, booted that (not in a virtual machine). Using "gentoo" (32-bit) at the boot prompt, the load process proceeded but hung at a point when it threw up continuous streams of (I think) "CPU0 ... unexpected LVT TMR interrupt ...". Hard to tell, the stream of messages was too fast. Gave up on that.

Using "gentoo64" at the boot prompt, things went well and the KDE4 desktop loaded. I also tried the XFCE and Gnome DE's. Surfing with SeaMonkey, OpenOffice, Patience, setups, customizations, gedit, filemanagers, etc. in all DE's. No problems found. Software choices mind-boggling, though. Overall appearance comment: excellent text readability in all DE's ... not since PCLOS and openSuse (I use all the time as my production desktop) have I found such clear fonts before. Congrats.

Biggest annoyances: no way to see/access my other partitions (ext3/NTFS/Fat) to access files ... I'm not Linux-savvy, so it would have been nice to be able to mount effortlessly; Using SeaMonkey instead of Firefox is a pain ... SM has no plugins I needed. Minor, but annoying. Also, found I still loathe KDE4 with a vengence. Loved Xfce, hated "do it our way, or else!) Gnome, as usual.

Config: Asus M2N-SLI, 2 gigs DDR2/800, WD250 SATA, Nvidia 8600GT/256 PCIe, Samsung SM 213T, Athlon 64x2 5000, 1 x IDE DVD burner (boot device), 1 x SATA DVD burner..

can I blindly copy the content of the squashfs image and fix up a bootloader and other hardware configs to make this a permanent install(p4/512M)? or is there an install option from the LiveDVD?

since I'm not able to start KDM, and the greeting from the livecd ~# prompt says

Tried the amd64 release on my laptop, played with a few programs, no problems.

Just two small points:
- The bootup music played, but about 50 seconds after the desktop had fully loaded.
- The desktop is KDE, but the default term appeared to be Gnome Terminal? Just looked strange.

Otherwise, nice work :)

Ok, so I got the Live DVD to work. The Dell Inspiron 6400 does not support framebuffer, so you have to use the gentoo-nofb kernel. When it tries to start X automatically (if you don't pass the nox option) it hangs. To actually get into kde, I had to use "gentoo-nofb nox" to boot, and then run startx from the cli...then it goes into kde without any issues...very strange, but good enough to allow me to try out kde 4.3 before I install it on my desktop :)

Firefox-3.5.3 is there just under the "Minefield" name. ;)
Can you try booting agai with gentoo (32bit) kernel?

Thanks for all the feedback btw

wow, what a great little package. I put this iso on an 8 gig sandisk cruzer thumbdrive. My T43 booted right into it, penguin framebuffer kicked right in, graphics really nice, and could use all the desktop managers. I never played with KDE at all before so now i get to poke around. Xfce, fluxbox,gnome and openbox are nice also. What a great tool this is. I have to test on all the other machines now.

Thank you very much.

Did you like the fast boot from the sandisk compared to a dvd disc? Thanks for the feedback btw, report any and all programs launched.

Fast boot was fast. Sweet. No hesitation at all. I didnt have to add any boot parameters to get it going. I didnt try it on a dvd. My T43 only had the dvd reader, and i cant get to my desktop right now. I'm running gentoo gnome-light on both of these. So far i'd only browsed a little with the opera browser. I'm getting ready to try it on a dell mini9 with OSX leopard installed, and 2 other intel macs. I'll be able to check the dell2400 later tonite.

Thanks again. :D

I tested it on two computers so far: My home-built computer, and my wife's Toshiba laptop, and both worked fine. I like it very much, but since it has KDE 4, I doubt that it will work on either of my laptops, neither of which has more than 256MB of R.A.M.

The only changes you would need to do after copying the contents of image.squashfs into your hard drive would be:


  • fdisk /dev/$ROOTDEVICE # Normal gentoo stuff first..
  • mount /dev/$ROOTDEVICE /mnt/gentoo # Mount your / partition, if you have more then mount at will to their correct destination
  • mkdir /tmp/loop # Temp directory for squashfs contents
  • mount -o loop,ro /mnt/cdrom/image.squashfs /tmp/loop # Mounts the contents of the livedvd squashfs image to /tmp/loop
  • rsync -a /tmp/loop/ /mnt/gentoo # Copy squashfs contents to hard drive
  • Grub # Setup your bootloader
  • Kernel Sources "You can use the .config from the dvd or just use genkernel"
  • /etc/fstab
  • /etc/hosts
  • /etc/conf.d/net
  • emerge -C livecd-tools mkxf86config sys-apps/hwsetup
  • /etc/make.conf
  • set root password
  • Light a candle then reboot


It should just work (tm) and if I missed anything let me know.

likewhoa
P.S The installer is dead so let it R.I.P kthx - We don't need no stinkin installers!

I don't know how this disc being a dual x86/x64 setup would affect this request, but could you include the kernel source? (You've got room; it's a DVD...) Then we NVIDIA users could probably get video acceleration going while running from the live DVD.

You Gentoo experts all probably already know, but you can install Adobe Flash manually by creating a ~./mozilla/firefox/<profile_dir>/plugins directory, downloading the Flash tarball, and extracting libflashplayer.so to it. (Firefox offers to install it for you, but for some reason, the installation fails.)

We are considering a script that will automatically emerge packages like adobe-flash,nvidia and such. I will look into providing kernel sources.

I missed on my netbook net-wireless/iwl5150-ucode for wireless card, so I can't establish internet connection. It would be great if LiveDVD contains firmares for popular devices (ie, broadcom, iwl etc).

Also Xorg freeze, same as ArneBab, and suggestion from comprookie2000 not working for me too. My netbook is Lenovo Ideapad S10-2 (see http://ru.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Lenovo_Ideapad_S10-2 for hardware information).

We cannot distribute most firmwares for legal reasons.
