1) I can't change the sound volume. At all, from any control. It's acutally at a pretty nice level if I wear headphones, but way to soft when using the built-in speakers. pbbuttons fails silently when changing the volume.

The program "gnome-volume-control" gives the error "Sorry, no mixer elemets and/or devices found". I've never ever run into this problem before, so I don't have a clue what to do.

2) Qemu doesn't work. I'm using the latest version of qemu found in portage, um ... 0.6.1. I did a vanilla emerge, it completed successfully. Now, when I launch it, it appears to work fine from the terminal (I.E., no errors) and my CPU usage jumps to 100%. However, there is no window. No nothing. I end up having to kill it with a control-C.

NOTE that I've used qemu quite a bit before on i386, so I'm pretty sure I'm launching it correctly.

3) This should be an easy one: how do I launch blender? I emerge'd it and now I can't figure out how to launch it. The command "blender" doesn't work. What do I do to fire up blender?

Thanks! :-)

1) Are you using alsa? Try alsamixer in a terminal to increase the volumes of the channels that you want.

2) I don't know. :?

3) Did you try "blenderpublisher"?

No such commands as "alsamixer" or "blenderpublisher". :?

I think I'm using ALSA ... it's compiled into the kernel and OSS is not ...

Did you follow the Gentoo Alsa guide? It's here: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/alsa-guide.xml
If you've done this, you'll have alsa mixer as part of the alsa-utils package which should be emerged. If you haven't done so, I recommend following the guide.

Sorry about the "blenderpublisher"! :oops: If you still don't know what launches blender, you can look in /usr/bin for it.
You can go to a terminal and do:
Code:
ls /usr/bin


But this will show a lot of results, if you suspect that the name of the program that launches it contains "blender" you can limit the results by doing this"

Code:
ls /usr/bin | grep blender


If you still can't find it, the best thing to do is to look in the documentation of the program that you emerged.

EDIT: I think you'll have better results if you post seperate questions in seperate threads. Then you'll have a better chance of getting all your questions answered.

Finding out how to launch a program...
You should emerge gentoolkit

This has a very handy program in it called qpkg

qpkg can do a lot of nice useful things, but the feature you need would be
accessed by the following:

qpkg -l blender

This would list all the files that the ebuild of blender installed.

You should be able to find the executable that way.
