Gentoo on Dell Latitude D820

Tagged with: — ondrej at 11:23 pm on Saturday, September 23, 2006

Larry the Cow Hurrah :) This week week I got a new notebook. Yeah, it took one month (meanwhile I was reading the Programming Ruby book, so it was quite short month; it is a nice book, I can only recommend it ;).

But back to the notebook. I installed Gentoo on it and I wrote a short howto.

Hi mate,
I think I know why your gentoo didnt
work at first run. You didnt enable
reiserfs in your manual config. If
you want i can post you my .config
file (curently gentoo-sources-2.6.20-r3).

Very nice website. I am curious how
did you do it (what program?). Doing
websites is something i am exploring
at the moment. I need hints.

hi Rafal :)

reiserfs> it was a long time ago :) but I think that i enabled it. I will check it.

website> thank you very much :) I downloaded the WordPress blog engine — it is a PHP web application (the instructions on the page are easy to understand). then I downloaded the Dixie Belle theme from the site and I slightly changed it — my photo (edited in Gimp) and changed colours.

have a nice day :)
