intel integrated video card

Enable KMS (Kernel Mode Setting) for Intel (Device Drivers => Graphic => Intel) is critical:


sudo genkernel --menuconfig all

grub2

let grub2 create the cfg for me automatically,


grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

network

for ethernet:


cd /etc/init.d

ln -s net.lo net.eth0

echo 'config_eth0="dhcp"' >> /etc/conf.d/net

/etc/init.d/net.eth0 start

rc-update add net.eth0 default

for wireless:


# I need setup /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf at first

cd /etc/init.d

ln -s net.lo net.ra0

echo 'config_ra0="dhcp"' >> /etc/conf.d/net

/etc/init.d/net.ra0 start

rc-update add net.ra0 default

Content of /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf:


#let wpa_supplicant take care of scanning and AP selection

ap_scan=1



#simple case: WPA-PSK, PPSK as an simple passphrase

  ssid="myssid"
  psk="mypassword"
  # the higher priority the sooner we matched
  priority=5
}

clock synchronization

htpdate is great because it only use HTTP protocol, don't forget add server in its config file.

Nothing to tell. There may be some issue, but I forgot.
