Hi,
Don't know - that's why I asked. ;-)

Now the next question - where can I get a list of all possible locales?
I obviously need US-UTF8 and I will need something for Russian and Ukrainian.

Thank you.

Can't help there. I only speak English and smattering of German.

Hi, ALL,
Could someone please confirm that for

Code:

00:01.0 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Wrestler HDMI Audio


the best choice is still snd_hda_intel driver?

The minimal CD uses it and so does my old install, but maybe the newer kernel has a better option?

Thank you.

It's pretty much the same thing

Code:
cat /etc/timezone
CST6CDT


Code:
file CST6CDT
CST6CDT: timezone data, version 2, 4 gmt time flags, 4 std time flags, no leap seconds, 149 transition times, 4 abbreviation chars

file America/Chicago
America/Chicago: timezone data, version 2, 7 gmt time flags, 7 std time flags, no leap seconds, 236 transition times, 7 abbreviation chars


Chicago is in the CST6CDT time zone

Code:
cat /etc/locale.gen
# /etc/locale.gen: list all of the locales you want to have on your system
#
# The format of each line:
# <locale> <charmap>
#
# Where <locale> is a locale located in /usr/share/i18n/locales/ and
# where <charmap> is a charmap located in /usr/share/i18n/charmaps/.
#
# All blank lines and lines starting with # are ignored.
#
# For the default list of supported combinations, see the file:
# /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED
#
# Whenever glibc is emerged, the locales listed here will be automatically
# rebuilt for you.  After updating this file, you can simply run `locale-gen`
# yourself instead of re-emerging glibc.

suggesting ls /usr/share/i18n/locales/ as a source of the list

Hi,
P.Kosunen wrote:

Edit: https://packages.gentoo.org/packages/sys-boot/os-prober

Go by handbook, but install os-proper before running grub-install.


According to this I need both os-prober and ntfs3g in order to boot Windows.

So I will need to install those 2 and then run grub-install? And the install script will create a configuration to boot both systems, correct?

Also, it looks like the os-prober depends on the fuse. Does this mean that I have to do "modprobe fuse" prior to running grub-install?

Thank you.

If you intend for os-prober to detect versions of Windows installed on
NTFS-formatted partitions, your system must be capable of reading the
NTFS filesystem. One way to do this is by installing sys-fs/ntfs3g


Don't know if it is needed just for detecting version or for whole thing to work, many years since my last dual boot install.

Kernel has module for NTFS support, but NTFS-3G is better and can even write to NTFS partitions, i would recommend using the latter.

OK.

What about fuse? Should it be loaded for os-prober to work?
I presume it should but I have no idea...

Thank you.
