Well, with the arrival of the new hard drive (WD2500KS 250GB) I’ve made tons of space to install lots and lots of stuff. I’ve been working with Gentoo the past few days and it’s been a breeze, asides from the ATI drivers which since are closed source from ATI (and spend half the time broken it seems) most things are working fine.

Let’s see…

Sager 8890 / Clevo D800P
Intel AC’97 Audio – Working (installed alsa in genkernel)
Intellimouse Explorer USB – Working (minus the scrollwheel)
ATI Technologies Mobility Radeon 9600 – Working (hangs when exiting Xserver)
