reat I meant in comparison to running 3200x1800 with defaults (unusable) or running 1600x900 (blurry and hard to look at). Admittedly this is not a good place for Linux desktop to be.

n is to patch xrandr with the capability to do nearest neighbor filtering and run xrandr like this: xrandr --output eDP1 --mode "3200x1800" --scale "0.5x0.5" It works great. - Grant

My laptop's 13" screen has a native resolution of 3200x1800 which makes everything crazy small on-screen. Is there a good method for telling Xorg or xfce4 to compensate, or should I one-at-a-time my applications? I can adjust the resolution down but it makes the colors look weird. - Grant

It looks like chromeium 60 just went stable for AMD64. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to build for me. I've googled the gcc error message from the build log, and the only thing I can find is somebody claiming it's caused by a bungled upgrade to gcc 5.x. I haven't upgrade to gcc 5.x, so that

, and then chroot into your disk :) The rescue kernel seems to only boot the same OS read-only and maybe some other tweaks. Unless I'm missing something, I don't think I'll be able to partition/format my disk after booting the rescue kernel since I'll be working from the OS running on the same disk I need to partition/format. Since I have multiple disks, could I boot sda as usual, install something I can boot to on sdb, switch the boot order and boot to sdb, install Gentoo on sda, switch the boot order back and boot into Gentoo on sda? - Grant
