    new installation with reiserfs as filesystem

    You're right of course about boot... perhaps I will try just to see if it's possible... :D
  2. Hi there! If I want to do an new installation using reiserfs as filesystem... I would follow the standard installation instructions exept at "Creating filesystems" I should use "mkfs.reiserfs /dev/sda3" instead of "mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda3" ? Could reiserfs also be used for the boot partition? Thanks for your advice! :) :D

    Problem with Xorg: no devices to configure

    Hi paglop! Thank you, will try!!! Greetings
  4. Hi nrc, what about an email? Just a short message to distrowatch.com that funtoo is systemd-free by default... Funtoo is listed at without-systemd.org, so the folks at distrowatch could check this easily. :)
  5. Hi there! As predicted it's me again... When trying to start x it starts... and ends with the error "xterm: not found" Next I tried: "X -configure" ending with the error: "no devices to configure" So... can you help and what information do you need? Have patience with a newbie... :D EDIT: I followed the instructions "X Window System" and was able to start the simple GUI. Next step will be setting up MATE.... :lol:

    Installation, lost at "chroot"

    Hi cardinal! Thank you again for your suggestion! It worked flawlessly! Now the system is set up and rebooted. Next step will be - when i will be able to spare time again - to install and setup xorg. Maybe you will find there a new post from me.... :P Greetings

    Installation, lost at "chroot"

    Hi cardinal! thank you, I missed the meaning of "." !! I will try and let you know the result. :)
  11. Hi there! I'm new to funtoo - to linux too to be honest... :-) I tried an installation according to the section "install" at the website. Everything worked until i came to the headline "chroot into Funtoo"; actualy in this part it's NOT mentioned how to chroot in the new system EXACTLY. I tried several approachses like "chroot /dev/sdc" because there would be my root directory, according to the previous steps.. But it doesn't work a bit. I searched the net but found nothing that helped me. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help angus71
