Question on Pappy Seed
- 11-08-2009 #2
Why are you using a Pappy seed? Your hardware may be completely different than what "Pappy" uses. Which might be the reason you are getting hangup. Are you shy about compiling your own kernel? It's not really that hard.
I'd advise you to follow the Gentoo handbook if you want the most success.

Follow the handbook, and do it manually. You will only learn to maintain your system by actually doing the install all yourself.
The best way to compile your first kernel is to actually read the options and select what you need or think you need. It may take longer, but you are using Gentoo so you must know what you are in for.
