Hi there! I'm a gentoo-noob, and I have quite a few problems, one of which I would like to ask for help with. I installed gentoo on my old laptop, and on boot time it always has a 60 second timeout, because it can't load the ipw2200 firmware. I thought that I should exclude it from the kernel, but I want to make my wifi to work, which I can't. Can anyone help me? I suppose if I can fix this ipw2200 kernel module, my wifi will work and the boot time will be shorter too. Does anyone have an idea how could I make it work?
And here is another problem. I would like to configure gentoo to work as a console OS, but with framebuffer. It was a success, I could manage to install the frambuffer so now the fonts are smaller and I have a decent splash screen, but the real point of frambuffer doesn't seem to work. I tried to use a simple image viewer, XV, which is framebuffered console app as far as I know, but I can't get it to work. As I read, the w3m browser uses it to show images on webpages, but it doesn't. When I type in xv, it says:
xn: Can't open display
My DISPLAY env var is empty, so I tried to set it to :0, :0.0, or localhost:0.0, etc. but nothing worked. Any suggestions? Thanks!
