I'm going to order my Epia MII 10K tonight and I'm still not sure exactly how
to go about putting together a Myth box with it. I keep swaying back and
forth between the Gentoo guide on the epiawiki and Jarod's guide. Personally,
I've installed and used Red Hat 9.0 before and was quite pleased. Plus, I
find Jarod's guide pretty easy to follow. Therefore, I'd like to go with FC2
as used in Jarod's guide.
However, can I still use the -epia kernel patch? Is that even necessary?
Does it stop me from using the apt-get stuff where I need to specify a kernel
version? (everything that requires a `uname -r`) After all, the patching
process will change the name of the kernel, right?
To be honest, I'm not sure exactly what the -epia kernel patch provides. If
it's just a bunch of .config stuff, I can probably do that by hand without too
much trouble. I've compiled a few kernels before, so I know the basics.
