  1. I did that when I installed the sytem and before I did my first emerge world, its still showing up as something I need for some strange reason. I piped the emerge though less again and it seems the package is screwed, its complaining about missing files in the packages build system. Or at least that is what I am getting from the 2-3 lines I am finding that may be the problem. But since this is a very important package for anything graphical, and niether of the newest versions will install, gentoo IS broken as a distro if it will not work. Maybe I am biased after being subjected to the stability of debian stable, but to me a distrobution is broken if its main appliations will not work. And since I don't have any power in the gentoo hiarchy I can't fix this myself.
  2. The probem is I am not seeing any errors from the 'emerge freetype' command except for the standard 'ERROR emerge freetype failed'. I can't report errors don't have. I was able to emerge a the newset 1.x version of freetype but the stuff I want to install for some damn reason needs a newer version. The sad thing is I'm not even installing X on this system and this is just a dependancy that is slowing me down.
  3. I have several ebuilds on gentoo failing to compile and it's pissing me off. It will not even give me a error outside of the standard portage error. truetype fonts libs needed by other applications refuse to compile. A mpeg library needed for audio will not compile. What can I do to fix this? Or am I SOL with a broken operatng system?
  4. *bump* I bought a SB128 pci sound card last night so I can start working on this again. As far as the other pci slots, I have decided the following: The pcHD3000 digital tuner card has no place in this system. By the time it becomes useful to me we will allready have the ability to plug ourselves into the internet and get a direct cranial feed for video. I'm selling it the first chance I get, if you want to buy it send me offers via PM. FXO Card: I have other systems I can use it in. Until then I can play with asterisk without it on that box. IDE Controler: Not really needed, I have 80 gigs on that box allready. Besides Im running out of 80 gig ide hard drives as it is. Now I just need to figure out what type of modem to get for its second pci slot. I have a external one here but its data/fax so I don't think I can do much with it in the sound department. I have decided to place this system next to my bed. With any luck I can get a cheap keyboard extention cord, a set of nice earphones, and never have to get out of bed again except for basic bodily maintainence. Anyone have any ideas for the card in that third PCI slot?
  5. All you need in any operating system to take advantage of HTT is SMP support. If your operating system can take advantage of multiple processors you can use it. Under Linux and BSD all you need is to add support for SMP in your kernel.
  6. Not to mentiion trace.
  7. You get these type of applications WITH windows. For FREE. Why would I need another one that is binary only? Especially after you just asked us about windows backdoors? I bet the code you asked us about for backdoors is in that little bsod application somewhere. That’s what I think. Show us the source, and if we can compile it and get a file with the same md5 and filesize as the one you link to then we will know its safe to run.
  8. You try grep and a toothpick? That always works for me. You may want to get the lines before and after your searches by about 2 sectors (512 * 2 == 1024) and just pipe it all into a file. Then filter that file to get any text data you may have lost since your binary stuff is pretty much gone. This utility works great. I Found it while looking up some old members of the forum:
  9. What? You mean call up dell and wait on hold for a hour, get disconnected, call back and then get told they don't support gentoo because "since its not redhat it can't be linux" and thus they will not help me? I just put it away until I can get the time to fuck with it. I need to buy a new sound card for it anyway, and I would rather have all my extra hardware installed before I install gentoo. So far I have managed to get myself a 52x CD-RW Drive to upgrade it. I'm thinking about adding a extra IDE based harddrive or two as well but IDE seems limited to one channel on this system so I can only have 2 IDE/ATAPI devices. :voteno: The 3 pci slots are also giving me trouble. Networking and video are onboard so I don't have to worry about them, But after the addition of a good sound card I only have 2 slots left. I would use one for USB2.0 but thankfully it has 4 slots onboard. Some of the things I want to add after the sound card: FXO card (For Asterisk). IDE Based controler card. (More IDE Hard drives and Optical drives.) A nice hardware voice modem. That HD3000 card I 'bought' as a gag gift. As you can see I have more desired cards then I do pci slots. I wish there was some way to use the USB for some of it.
  10. Old stuff is hard to find. I would make archival backups of everything myself.
  11. Right now I'm just going on tech data I collect. I still don't have a system up that meets its minimum requirements so I haven’t been able to actually use it. It needs at least a p4 1.2 ghz system with 256 megs of ram to function. Before my Dell got here that was out of my leage, but now I am limited by the number of PCI slots it has.
  12. *bump* This is all i could find on the hardware specs. Maybe it will help somebody, maybe even me.

  13. My knoppix cd will not even boot on it. Syslinux starts but come time to boot a kernel it just stalls. My gentoo install cd seems to have no support for sata at all. It detends the drive but trying to format or use it in any way fails. My 'lspci' see's everything as 'unknown'. This sucks. It seems others have been trying this: And I found this: But its not much help so far.
  14. It's a well known fact that he likes to take credit for other peoples work. Several people have complained about not getting credit for there work on asterisk becuase he simply took out there names in the code used or changed the files data to say copyright by him only. I know several people who have done allot of work on asterisk. Don't go telling me they should not get credit for there work.
  15. What I dont get is how it could only be over the air. My TV was very old when it died. I remember years ago using that exact type of TV to hook up a NES system using a RF converter and an adapter to turn the two screws used for rabbit ears into a coax connection to set it up. Cant I do the same basic thing with this somehow? Then I could sell it on ebay or something.
