laptop funtoo install notes


the desktops acting terrible right now, so here comes funtoo to the laptop =D  just some notes of some stuff....  (im going to give damex access so he can beatup tengine on my amd machine)


im using jfs, its 4m blocksized.  im using 1 partition with a swap file.


mkfs.jfs /dev/sda1

mkdir /mnt/funtoo

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/funtoo


dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/funtoo/swapfile bs=4096k count=512


deploys a 2gb swapfile.


chmod 600 /mnt/funtoo/swapfile


makes the swapfile so its not globally readable for security purposes.


mkswap /mnt/funtoo/swapfile

swapon /mnt/funtoo/swapfile


guess turion x2 is k8....  generic_64 subarch =D  (took a second to find that one on wikipedia.)


ill drop in lilo and wifi and jfs utils, and try tengine + passenger on my own before i hand over the keys.  i guess this is all for now.  ill make a swapfile wiki page from these notes in a bit when im on more solid ground.


looks like the stage3 untar commands too specific, instead:


tar xpf stage3-*.tar*


(whats up with some stage sha1 sha256 or md5s?)


resolv.conf on my alternate media only has listed, clearly this is bad, is better.


echo "nameserver" >> /mnt/funtoo/etc/resolv.conf

the chroot command doesn't work for alternate live media, chroot /mnt/funtoo /bin/bash doesenv -i HOME=/root TERM=$TERM chroot . bash -l

==== maybe these are the droids? ====

root@ubuntu:/mnt/funtoo# chroot /mnt/funtoo /bin/bash
ubuntu / # env-update

ubuntu / # eselect profile list
!!! Error: Can't find /usr/portage/profiles/profiles.eselect.desc



==== before sync ====

set the root password:



==== ok now that im synced up ====


/swapfile none swap defaults 0 0

==== clock ====

the clock on here is screwy, i dont like utc in the bios, localtime's where im at, if i set it in bios the os should comply.  (my clocks 4 hours off so ill try chrony for the first time)




==== Networkmanager ====

im getting insufficient privileges, console kit's not running @ boot, possibly also need to add something like plugdev group to my unprivileged user?
