  1. Man, @nrc, I sure wish I would have paid more attention to your reports when I started my latest installs . . . I thought the Inspiron 650 was looking to get a few more grey hairs out of me <smile> Once I hybridized the latest hackerspace iso, booting to efi was smooth as silk. Thank you. Regards, splifingate
  2. hi I'm in the process of trying to get a BIOS + GRUB (GPT) on a BIOS-only system (Dell T7500), and I had this exact question, also (I did this back in circa 2014/15)... ...here's the WaybackMachine entry: https://web.archive.org/web/20140226131048/http://www.funtoo.org/Funtoo_Linux_Installation hth others Regards, splifingate
  3. No probs, now, with 'ego sync's I have no idea 😉 Regards, splifingate
  4. You are not the only one. Fresh 1.4-release install prods this error, as well as a subsequent retrograde-nuke-re-install... ...I don't use (or intend to use) Gnome, so I'm not that concerned, but... ...multiple searches o/in the interwebs showed multiple bugs with multiple ('resolved') scenarios. I do not currently have the where-with-all to appropriately file reports on this bug. Just wanted to let you know that you are not alone. Regards, splifingate
  5. Since I failed to complete this step (and have since come to the fail-point while trying to install Xorg with a Radeon HD 7950 (after many detailed/tedious customisations)), I was {almost} bereft at the prospect of having to "start-from-scratch" ;( Finding that I had not installed 'sys-kernel/linux-firmware', I re-compiled the d-s-lts-4.9.168_p1 kernel "after-the-fact", did a 'ego boot update' and rebooted. Apart from the fact that the 'ego boot update' re-set my Dell P2715Q to rendering tiny-text in the console, "startx" finally brought me to a successful TWM session ;) Hearten
