F f f f f Just spend 8 hours getting the new 2.6.11 kernel to work!

Had to do the usual hacks/trial-and-errors to get access to the SATA drive.

Moved lots of stuff over to modules instead of building stuff in so had to add stuff (for the first time) to /etc/modules.autoload.d

Gonna make a note of how I got network access back when dhcpcd stopped cooperating. This is all Gentoo of course.

ifconfig eth0 137.205.72.* broadcast netmask

(fill in the star with whatever you choose – incidentally, this could be used to change your ip address if for any reason you need to do such a thing)

route add default gw

nano -w /etc/resolv.conf

in here, type


You will not believe how long it too me to figure stuff out to get to here! Once you have kde running, make xconfig is much better than make menuconfig for configuring the kernel.
