    Gentoo Fully Installed But Still Problems???


    I finished the Stage 1 install of Gentoo, but when grub tries to boot it comes up with an error that says:
    fsck.ext2: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/boot
    /dev/BOOT:
    The Superclock could not read or does not descrive a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is currupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock: e2fsck -b <device>

    *Fsck could not correct all errors manual repairs needed

    Does anyone know what this is, and if you do would you help me fix it. If at all possible i would love to not have to reinstall gentoo as it took me a full day to install.

    Edit your /etc/fstab and replace /dev/BOOT with the actual partition (ex: in my case /dev/hdb2). Do the same with ROOT and SWAP.
