I still lose video altogether if I exit X, however the machine is not locked up - I can restart X remotely and all is well. It would probably be fine with a login manager (or mythtv run from inittab)
Nice! congrats. I just order all my parts last night, I'll be putting Gentoo on too. Diskless install at that, already have it built and waiting
So did you get the audio working under gentoo yet? I'm really curious to see what stat the audio drivers are in. I really want to do video/audio over HDMI, but can fallback to use optical output if need. Can you confirm/deny driver support in gentoo for this?
EDIT: haha, sorry, just realized I was in the same thread as I posted this message up above. thought I was in the other DG45FC thread.
