Well, thanks to some fine tips from the gentoo website, I was able to start the KDE UI without too much trouble. (Thank god for Internet.)
KDE runs fine. KPersonalizer didnt start right off the bat, but I got it starting easily.
I’ve got one issue.
I’m running at 640×480 resolution.
I don’t know what to do… I know gentoo found my video card (can’t remember what it is… I think it’s an nVidia card… yes… I see the “driver” lying around somewhere). I know my monitor can do above 640×480 (I’ve got a monitor that can’t if you can actually believe that…).
KDE does allow me to go to 320×200. Which is amusing, but offers me nothing but amusement value. I mean, come on. 320×200?
I want at least 800×600 out of this. I want 1024×768 from that old setup.
But I don’t know where to go yet…
