Introduction

All you need to run gentoo on Fujitsu Lifebook S6120. We assume that you use a 2.6 kernel. Any help is welcome.

This guide is very fresh and far from complete.

Wifi

I advise to use the wireless-tools package. The wpa_supplicant does work, but not as good as expected.
Dhcpcd does not seem to work on every access point i have met. I managed to overcome this by using the command:

Code: /

dhclient eth1

and into my /etc/conf.d/net i added this code:

Code: /
failup(){ 
if  [[${IFACE} == "eth1"]]  ; then
dhclient eth1 > /dev/null &
fi
}

It simply executes the dhclient if dhcpcd fails to get an IP.
NOTE: you have to change eth1 to your interface.

X.org

This is my Xorg configuration and it should work for all laptops of this series.
NOTE: Remember to change the XkbLayout to your language.
