    Have you tried waiting a little longer? I noticed sometimes it seems to take alot longer to load than other times. Like it hangs or something.

    I'm sorry I can't help, but since there's a couple of people here already running linux...
    I'm in the middle of downloading gentoox right now. Does that seem to be the best version to run on the xbox?

    Did you try to update it? change anything? Or did it just stop working one day? Shut it down improperly? Your not supposed to just shut if off with the power button you know..Just trying to figure out if you might have done something to cause this thats all.

    Sorry to say my friend but I think you need a fresh install.. I had some trouble with the magic updates myself. There is supposed to be a file you can download to fix corrupted gentoox installs.. Not sure what it is but I have seen it. Just never had to use it. Have you been on the Gentoox web site?
