LIP 27: Gentoo Linux – Getting X Up and Running

Posted in Gentoo, X at 5:56 am by serge

We continue on with our Gentoo adventure, setting out to get X11 configured. But first we are forced to detour to revisit network configuration. After that scenic trip, we get even more familiar with emerge and the compile machine that Gentoo is. We are rewarded with a visit back to one of your host’s favorite (but long ignored) window managers: Icewm.

LIP 26: Gentoo Part Deux

Posted in Gentoo at 5:33 am by serge

After what appeared to be success with the LiveCD install last episode, we
learn that our early optimism was unfounded. Bascially the install didn’t
quite finish the way we thought it had, so we got a chance to get more first
hand love from Gentoo. Like 8-9 hours worth of love.

Tonight’s show captures the last of many attempts to get Gentoo installed. Did it work? Well, you have to tune in to find out now won’t you?

LIP 25: Gentoo – Initial LiveCD Install

Posted in Gentoo, Initial Install, Live-cd at 2:46 pm by serge

We kick off our seventh distro of the show going with a live cd install of Gentoo Linux. This ubergeek distro greets us with a very slick graphical installer that surprises us given what we’ve heard about Gentoo’s close to the metal nature. We emerge from the installer with a new respect for this distro and look forward to more exploration in the coming three episodes.

Also discussed are portable music players and Linux as well as a tip for Konqueror users.

We also talk about some Linux adventures, Moodle vs. Blackboard in the ivory tower, some Rockbox stuff, feedback from our most excellent listeners, and a promo for a new podcast GoingLinux. Lot’s o stuff to cover inside this week’s LIP.
