theres also this:
http://www.beachaudio.com/Lenovo/261729u-p-571580.html
I know gentoo is all about configuring the system to the hardware at hand,
and since I couldnt find my video card anywhere in either of the bpaste links
I posted it here in the aforementioned link.
It is the 7660G btw.

Edit: Quick question while the kernel source emerges: if I were to have bought a non proprietary video card, would I have been able to configure the software for it to make it faster? Does that make sense?
Also, are the non proprietary laptop video cards out there good enough for intense gaming/video editing?

Edit: Done emerging. Did I do this right?
Code:
(chroot) mint / # ls /usr/share/zoneinfo
Africa      Atlantic   Chile    Eire     Factory  GMT-0      Iceland      Jamaica    MET      Navajo   Portugal    right      UCT        W-SU
America     Australia  CST6CDT  EST      GB       GMT+0      Indian       Japan      Mexico   NZ       posix       ROC        Universal  zone.tab
Antarctica  Brazil     Cuba     EST5EDT  GB-Eire  Greenwich  Iran         Kwajalein  Mideast  NZ-CHAT  posixrules  ROK        US         Zulu

after you have followed the handbook and emerged gentoo-sources:
Code:
cd /usr/src/linux
wget http://kernel-seeds.org/seeds/64_bit/gentoo/3.4.9-gentoo-x86_64-08.config
mv 3.4.9-gentoo-x86_64-08.config .config
which will give you a pappy's kernel seeds .config file.

Done... What is this for again? Is this an alternative to manual kernel configuration?

it is a better start for manual configuration than you would get otherwise. I will post my guess for additional drivers you need to add to pappy's shortly.

after getting the kernel seed, changing its name to .config, stay in /usr/src/linux directory, run make menuconfig then add your drivers, when done editing, exit saving configuration, and pick up handbook at make && make modules_install when you get to grub you will need grub2 more to follow on that

my suggestions for adapting kernel seed to your lenovo,

Should I check (*) the ones you have checked AND uncheck the ones that you have unchecked, or only check the ones you have checked?

http://dev.gentoo.org/~scarabeus/grub-2-guide.xml is the reference not the handbook when you get to grub
I have seen claims that legacy grub can now handle gpt however ....
the shortform
Code:
nano /etc/portage/package.keywords
edit to add
Quote:
<sys-boot/grub-9999 ~amd64
ctrl-x to close saving
Code:
emerge --ask --tree --verbose sys-boot/grub:2 os-prober linux-firmware
grub2-install --no-floppy /dev/sda
os-prober
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

How do I get out of this?

I typed
"find /lib/modules/3.4.9/ -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*.ko' | less"
instead of
"find /lib/modules/<3.4.9>/ -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*.ko' | less"

in step 8b.
do
Code Listing 2.1: Setting the host name
don't do
Code Listing 2.2: Setting the domainname
Code Listing 2.3: Setting the NIS domainname
unless you have a specific goal in mind don't do
Code Listing 2.4: Opening /etc/conf.d/net for editing
Code Listing 2.5: Default /etc/conf.d/net
Code Listing 2.6: Manually setting IP information for eth0
Code Listing 2.7: Automatically obtaining an IP address for eth0
if you want to use wicd or network manager don't do
Code Listing 2.8: Adding net.eth0 to the default runlevel
do
Code Listing 2.9: Opening /etc/hosts

looks good
i would delete: cdrom line --a legacy, it interferes with automounting
i would add: shm /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
shm line may be useless now also, i picked it up the hard way, but a long while ago

ext4 according to
Code:
mount

I am going to try to do this as quick as possible since it seems you are leaving and I want to get it done before then.

I already left the chroot environment it seems using env-update && source /etc/profile.

I am going to emerge metalog since it is the most customizable (as customizability is something i value highly). I will learn how to customize it later, ater I am done doing the basic install of gentoo.

I will skip all the optional emerges unless you convince me otherwise.

you must be in chroot to emerge, and should still be, check ls -l / for snapshot and tarball

steps 10a,10b, 10c should be replaced by:

http://dev.gentoo.org/~scarabeus/grub-2-guide.xml is the reference not the handbook when you get to grub
I have seen claims that legacy grub can now handle gpt however ....
the shortform
Code:
nano /etc/portage/package.keywords
edit to add
Quote:
<sys-boot/grub-9999 ~amd64
ctrl-x to close saving
Code:
emerge --ask --tree --verbose sys-boot/grub:2 os-prober linux-firmware
grub2-install --no-floppy /dev/sda
os-prober
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

I did do both. I was referring to:
Code Listing 3.8: Setting the default system locale in /etc/env.d/02locale

LANG="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="C"
In which I believe you can only choose one.
************
When I did the following:
Code Listing 3.9: Reload shell environment

# env-update && source /etc/profile
I automatically exited chroot. Do I still need to re-enter chroot?

you are still in chroot
I gather the prompt changed?

yes to doing: steps 10a,10b, 10c should be replaced by:
