    2 quick question


    Question 1: Is there a file browser out there for fluxbox? Something similar to Konqueror in KDE.

    Question 2: I have just had a go at emerging entrance, but 2 packages it needs have been masked to -* and ~x86. The packages are:
    - x11-libs/esmart-9999 (masked by: -* keyword)
    - x11-libs/esmart-0.9.0.20050220 (masked by: ~x86 keyword)
    I am running an AMD Athlon XP 1700+ CPU, is there a way to get entrance on my computer? I have heard good things about entrance, but SuSE doesn't have it in YaST, so thought i'd try it in gentoo.

    Most people use Nautilus or Rox in fluxbox, but there are other file browsers as well.

    Sorry I can't help with your other question, but I'm not a Gentoo guy.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    I definitely reccomend Rox over Nautilius. If you do use Nautilus, make sure to pass it --no-desktop or you'll have hell to pay.

    Definitely use rox or nautilus.
    Remember, Fluxbox is _not_ a desktop system, it's a window manager, although it is indended to be a stand-alone system.

    It's not the CPU that they masked the entrance libraries on, it's the fact that the enlightenment libraries are still very much development status. You have to unmask them. I don't remember how, I'll try and look at my settings when I get the chance.

    all masked packages are in the /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask file. Take whatever the package is out of that file.

    ok to emerge that do thin first
    Code:
    echo "x11-libs/esmart-0.9.0.20050220 ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
    to place that in to /etc/portage/package.keywords
    then
    Code:
    emerge esmart
