USE flag problem


[code]arthur / # emerge -vp glibc

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

Sound problem


Hey all, running getnoo on my ppc, I have alsa compiled into the kernel, and when i try to run alsmixer i get this;

[andy@DhunEideann ~ $ alsamixer

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device


Oh yeah, the thing we've been waiting for. Gentoo now has an installer. Just look at the shots!


I'm having trouble printing with Gentoo, and CUPS. I have configured CUPS and the HP driver correctly (well I think) and when I go to print a test page it'll print a page which is 100% black. THis happens on 600dpi, and not on 300dpi, but I want 600dpi since the quality of images on 300dpi is bad.


I've recently found a small app named ufed which helps you choose USE flags for Gentoo. It reads the /etc/make.conf and gives you a list of all the USE flags available and alows you to read a description, select and save new USE flags. It's usful since I don't know each and every USE flag off by heart.
