Gentoo Sound and Video (printing)
Hello LF ppl its good to be back!
Ok so I now have installed and [basicly] have set up the core of what i need. However, looking at the gentoo wiki has made my brain hurt a bit and I really don't understand exactly what is going on So i have a good plethera of questions and if anybody has had this problem before then that would be excellent to get the solution
- What is a masked package? (i read the wiki and followed the instructions however it never worked)
- How do I install Java (I tried the blackbox thing or whatever it is and installed it the way it told me to but apparently i need a package to download somewhere, however i cannot find that package)
- How do I get my sound working (I have a Creative Sound Blaster Live! card - Again, I read the wiki and fainted)
- Lastly, How do I get my printer running (Im used to the moron fedora setting where you just tell it what you want :\)
Even though Gentoo is a biotchola to install, it has improved my system preformace dramaticly (Recommended to anyone with a few days of nothing to do.)
Thanks for all your help guys!
