hi I've just installed a gentoo with kernel 2.6.18 gentoo r5 on a bios raid 0. I modified make.conf with a few flags for USE. when I emerge --info I find there are too many useless flags that I've never seen turned on! where are they from? I mean all those flags for each old video card.

have you set the extension features in make.conf?
es:
Code:
VIDEO_CARDS="nv nvidia vesa fbdev fglrx radeon sis v4l"
INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse joystick synaptics"
ALSA_CARDS="intel8x0 emu10k1 ens1371"

i think that your profile is wrong. If you want change it:
Code:
eselect profile list

I've reinstalled gentoo - on a bios raid0 -. at the moment i've emerged only grub, updated glibc and reinstalled ncurses. I've modified make.conf and I've cutted this way all video cards flags except nv and nvidia - should I keep both of them for safety? - and all audio cards flags except emu10k1.
Code:

VIDEO_CARDS="nv nvidia"
ALSA_CARDS="emu10k1"
INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse joystick"


I guess synaptics is for touchpad, isn't it?

1. Now the most part of undesirable flags are about alsa plugins: how can I reduce their number?

2. where are these extended make.conf options documented ?

I 've tried
Code:

eselect profile list


but it doesn't recognize 'eselect'. what should I emerge? in x86 handbook says there are only 2 profiles: one default fo 2.6 kernel and one default for 2.4 kernel :?:

thanx

Yes. You can also add "vesa".

Set ALSA_PCM_PLUGINS variable appropriately.

"/usr/portage/profiles/desc/*.desc".

:) thank you very much. i'll try later at home.

make.profile is already a link to /usr/portage/default-linux/x86/2006.1/desktop

Code:

ls -GFg /etc/make.profile
