Gentoo Installation Woes

Filed under Linux

So I have been tinkering around with Gentoo Linux and have been trying to get it up and running on a Dell D620. My first mistake was using genkernel instead of manually configuring the kernel (as recommended by Gentoo). Genkernel seems to install all kinds of extra stuff that you don’t need. My problem is that xorg won’t configure properly…looks like a kernel issue with the Intel 945g video. I have followed these instructions in the Gentoo Wiki and still can’t get X to work properly. I am going to try and reinstall with a manual kernel configuration. In the meantime, if you have a D620 and running Gentoo please post any suggestions in the forum. 🙂
