As part of my continuing effort to create an archive of processor optimized current stage1/3/4 files...

Initial Gnome 3.1 Stage4 (for Corei7 family and above only) has been released!

-- These stage4 builds are 'stable+testing' stage4 builds.
-- This is a Gnome 3.1 'stage4' built off my Corei7 stage3, so will only work on Corei7 family and newer processors.
-- To install the stage4, following gentoo install like normal, a kernel was included for building purposes but you should build your own.
This is a corei7 stage3 w/ gnome3.1 (stage4). Beyond that, no extra glut.
This is a BASE gnome package to get you started on Gnome 3.

Installation Notes
-- After it is installed, *NOTE* root password is gentoo, test username gentoo, password is gentoo.
-- After install, edit your make.conf for your video card (it was built on nvidia), and run emerge -DNuav world.
-- That + eselect opengl set xxx, 'should' install the proper graphics drivers.
-- Lastly configure xorg.conf for proper screen resolution.

If you happen to have an i7/nvidia-gpu computer, and a 1920x1200 monitor, you're already configured!

Thanks again for your effort!

BTW how did you build 3.1? Do you have your own overlay?
