Description Mikael Lindberg 2007-01-29 21:07:05 UTC
I followed a guide (
and when i was at the unpacking stage, the computer totally freesez! (or how it is spelled). First time i unpacked it crashed after half the procces second time it crashed after unpacking only 10-20 things! I compiled a kernel and gfxboot at the same time, can it be related?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with the guide, and when you come to the unpack stop and follow my instructions!
2. Start compiling the kernel with genkernel with the options 'genkernel --gensplash=gentoo-blue all' dont wait for it to finish just let it run a bit
3. Now start compiling gfxboot
4. now go back to the usb thing
5. now start unpacking
6. freze! (at last for me).

Actual Results:  
Total system frezze

Expected Results:  
Continue unpacking

i did this in kde with konsole, and i have qingy set up (i have tux showing up at the top off the screen at start)

Absolutely no idea what's gfxboot; moreover we are not providing technical support for broken hardware and we don't maintain nor endorse IOW, this is wrong place for such stuff.
