The Caffeinated Penguin

musings of a crackpot hacker

Grrrr….

Posted By on June 6, 2004

I was doing two things at once and logged out not realizing that I still had logjam opened with lots of stuff written and hadn't hit submit yet, so I lost it all.

The nutshell is that Liz and I went shopping yesterday, and I bought some DVD's and a new desk to replace the old, ugly, too huge one, plus a bunch of plastic containers to attempt to organize my life.

And, I installed x.org. For you adventurous souls, here's the skinny:

(drop to a tty) /etc/init.d/xfs stop /etc/init.d/xdm stop emerge –unmerge xfree ACCEPT_KEYWORDS=”~x86″ emerge xorg-x11 wine (go to sleep) etc-update (or do it manually) /etc/init.d/xfs start /etc/init.d/sdm start

The only incompatibility I've found is with old versions of wine, hence why you need to install the ~x86 version.
