That was it. Just build the things you aren't sure about in the kernel as modules, so that you can modprobe them if you need them, or rmmod if you don't. The only thing I would think that HAS to be build in would be your filesystem for /boot and /.
Just post or pm me, and I will help you out all I can. Let me know the problem, and hopefully we can find an answer. I think I followed the wiki for my ati drivers on the laptop.
It was actually painless.

emerge -e system && emerge -e system && emerge -e world
It only took about 12 hours on my P4 3.0E, so it won't take any longer for you if you use ccache.
If you need any help, just let me know! My messengers are all on here, and I will answer pm's if I get them.

Well my friend was telling me ccache is not any good really only if you will emerge the same things everytime.
Also I reinstalled VLOS and im back to where i wanted to be im good now
I installed latest everything . 4.0.1 might go to 4.0.2 gcc. Just modifying my make.conf to make it nice .. just added -qt -kde stuff i dont need since me and my friend are using gnome , i'll keep gnome only here for now.
u should come through irc = xchat =)

And yeah, I use gnome only on all my computers. I used KDE for a while, but I always seem to come back to gnome.
And what channel are you on?

Lately the only issue I've been having is Kernel probs. I'm trying to learn how to do my own . But vlos kernel is fine but I want to tweak it . holla

I have always compiled my own. I never used genkernel, I just find out what hardware I have, and add support by a.) compiling it into the kernel, b.) compiling it as kernel modules, or c.) downloading other kernel modules and compiling them as I see fit.
I like my own configuration, and it isn't hard at all to do. And I have never used VLOS, so I don't know what kind of "tweaking" they do to the OS, and what they change about gentoo to make it VLOS.
I do know that an "emerge -uDN world" would break the system back when VLOS first came out. I hear they have fixed that.

.. If I overclock it to lets say 3.30 or 3.60 .. what will I notice different ? speed faster ? compiling faster ?
