    I think you should be able to continue where you left off, using the same method you used last night, which would be the Minimal install CD right? You do know, you need networking for the minimal Installer?? The Emerge command will need a working Internet Connection.

    I think I have the answer now, you need to chroot back into Gentoo, (Section 6.a), and Then continue with installing your Kernel.

    Okay, everything is gravy for now, but I got a problem. I am on section "7.e kernel Modules" Configuring the Modules Code Listing 17: Viewing all available modules, I input what is there ie:
    " #find /lib/modules /kernel-2.6/ -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*. "
    as desribed in the handbook. Once I hit enter I get this ">" and nothing happens is this normal?.

    This is a little tricky but it says in the Install guide, (section 7.e)
    Don't forget to substitute "<kernel version>" with the version of the kernel you just compiled:
    So, issue this command
    Code:
    ls /usr/lib
    you'll see something like this:
    2.6.19-gentoo-r5 2.6.22-gentoo-r5 2.6.22-gentoo-r8
    Those are the kernel versions I have installed, but your may look different. This is the kernel version you need to add.
    for me it would be
    Code:
    find /lib/modules/2.6.22-gentoo-r8/ -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*.ko'
    /lib/modules/2.6.22-gentoo-r5/kernel/crypto/sha256.ko

    Okay, I ran the command: ls /usr/lib what module do need to install? It shows multiple colors of grey,aqua blue and green, dark blue text.

    I also ran the find command with my version of the kernel and here is what shows or what it found:

    /lib/modules/2.6.22-gentoo-r8/kernel/drivers/net/s2io.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.22-gentoo-r8/kernel/drivers/human/smsc47b397.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.22-gentoo-r8/kernel/drivers/i2c/i2c-dev.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.22-gentoo-r8/kernel/drivers/i2c/i2c-core.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.22-gentoo-r8/kernel/drivers/scsi/scsi_wait_scan.ko


    these are modules are installed for now, should I need to install others as well ?

    I'm pretty sure you can skip this part and move along to section 8.a, especially if you are using a genkernel. Do you have a working Internet connection? What type of Network card is it?

    I'm not using the genkernel since it's buggy and all so I decide to do the manual configuration of the kernel. Im using the onboard nvidia.


    I have the "/etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6" opened up and I only see the comments # sections as well as the sample module in the config file. how can i add additional modules or like you said just move on. LOL

    Are you using the LiveCD right now and chrooting to the HD? Did you have to load a module to get the Internet working? If you are using the LiveCD, open another terminal/konsole window and see which modules are already loaded with this command.
    /sbin/lsmod
    or
    sudo /sbin/lsmod
    Post the output here.
    EDIT: Are you using SATA drives, which Video card do you have?
    Try using this command to discover more about your hardware:
    /sbin/lspci
    or
    sudo /sbin/lspci
    For me, all I had to do was compile a standard kernel, (removing all the drivers I didn't need) and Installing my WIFI driver manually, after I had done all the configuring. I didn't need any extra modules.

    I am currently in the (chroot) environment, Also I did not have to load a module to get the internet working. I copied the DNS information " cp -L /etc/resolve.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/" is what I used.



    How do I open a terminal window if I am in the (chroot) environment, Can't I just run that command in (chroot) evironment?

    Yes! I am running a SATA HD and my graphic card is an EVGA 7950GT OK 512MB card.
