After I installed Gentoo, and only after, I started getting "you need to reboot" messages when running OSX on my iBook rather frequently (ie once every 10 times I turned it on). This had never happened before, and I had actually never seen it happen on new generation macs. Does anyone know what the problem could possibly be? I've already run hardware and disk checks, and everything is 100% healthy according to them. Does anyone else have this problem, or know what is wrong?

Wow, that's a very weird problem. All I can suggest is that you move away from an operating system that forces you to reboot when you most likely don't need to.

Wow that is pretty weird. What I would do is back up everything important. And zero the drive. Then install Gentoo first then OS X.


Give that a shot.

Hmm.. I might try that. I also have another problem -- is it normal that GNOME will only let me log in as root? I can start gdm as a regular user, but I can only log in as root. Where's the file with the settings I need?

# useradd john -m -G users,wheel,audio -s /bin/bash
# passwd john
