checkin out gentoo 2007


checkin out gentoo 2007
Originally uploaded by speattle
not so much by choice, but i got to learn to install and setup gentoo on intel based mac mini for ruby on rails app.

partitioning, installation, package installation with emerge, ..., it's been quite painful 4 days.

i had to use mac mini, because that was only hardware available to me, and duh, i started with 10.4 without boot camp. that was my stumbling block. once i grabbed leopard installation that came with bootcamp, partitioning got easier.

oh, also partition it as windows partition, then change it to linux using 'fdisk /dev/sda' when in gentoo shell.

i had downloaded gentoo 2007 livedvd but for some reason it didn't like looking up '/dev/sda' to kick off the installation.

after about 2-3 failed attempt and about 2 complete reinstall from mac os, i sorta got wised and attempted to chmod /dev/sda* from root as livedvd took me to X windows as gentoo user. That didn't help, but now i know not to panic, as i can sudo as gentoo user without password.

still with no success at install, i had to opt for minimial install cd, and as i've not done gentoo install before i'd be reading gentoo handbook and wouldn't know the instruction. now that i do understand, it's pretty easy instruction to follow; explaining the steps that followed by exact command line to enter.

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?full=1#book_part1_chap1 is bookmarked for me now, along with http://gentoo-wiki.com/HARDWARE_Apple_Mac_Mini.

i'm in the middle of adding packages via emerge now.

still am not familiar with raiserfs, but am glad to know gentoo can be loaded to mac mini.

although it didn't work out livedvd logging in as gentoo and taking me to X window desktop was nice. after following minimal install i'm logged in to shell for emerge update, and got to locate X window/desktop packages to install to get ack into the Desktop as nice/fancy as gentoo user's was when i booted from DVD.

oh, it was nice i made note about rEFit earlier in blog, i had to look it up when partitioning from Mac OS X.

Online sportsbooks now have the security of being a large company ensuring the best benefits for any bettor. Sportsbooks will take your bets in exchange for a commission which is usually a percentage of the wager. This is also known as the juice, vig or vigorish. In theory, the sportsbooks don't care who you bet on. They simply take half of their bets on each side and make their commission. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
