Yeeehaaa, I found a Command and Conquer Red Alert 2 disc at home today… what a feeling. After some bit of hacking it runs nicely in Wine on Gentoo Linux… ;) Wow, the good old days are back!
I upgraded to Linux kernel version 3.0.3 today and it works!
There were some things to think about but almost everything worked like kernel 2.6.39. The main problem was the Nvidia driver which must be the newest version available. The “stable” version for 2.6 doesn’t compile. I added the following to /etc/portage/package.keywords to get things run:
=sys-kernel/vanilla-sources-3.0.3 ~x86 x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers ~x86
VirtualBox modules compiled without any problems and is running like before…
Just upgrade! Ask me if you need help… ;)
Rafael and I found this 7 segment LED display tonight while tinkering a bit. We didn’t knew what it is at first but after searching around the web we found out that it was a very vintage 7 segment LED display with 3 digits… ;) It is a HP 5082-7433.
