    Gentoo, Bootstrapping the System, Kernel panic?


    This is my first time installing Gentoo. I followed the handbook from gentoo.org:
    http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...x86.xml?part=1

    During the "bootsrapping the system" phase I got this:

    Code:
    kernel BUG at <bad filename>&#58; 33609!
    invalid operand&#58;0000 &#91;#1&#93;
    SMP
    Modules linked in&#58; floppy rtc evdev ...
    ...
    <0>Kernel panic - not syncing&#58; Fatal exeption in interupt
    I did not include all the code as I am typing this from enother computer.

    Does anybody know what I could have done wrong?

    my guess is:
    1)I messed up /mnt/gentoo/etc/make.conf
    2)I did not configure USE variables correctly

    my next question is: what should I do next? Should I start all over again?

    Thanks!

    if you followed the instructions in the manual (and are using x86) then you should be fine. if you have deviated then you should include ONLY the options in the manual and see if that works. if that fails, then you may have a corrupt CD, which seems more likely to me. try verifying the MD5 checksum of it.

    you may also have some dodgy hardware that the genkernel on the liveCD doesn't like. you could try installing gentoo from a knoppix liveCD since that has better hardware detection and just follow the CLI instructions as normal
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    I used DVD that was part of Linux Format magazine which I bought in a local store.
    Hardware is Athlon XP (0.13) 1497 Mhz
    512 Mb RAM
    Chipset: VIA KM 400 (as detected by gentoo)
    HD is actually old. It's only about 5GB.
    I will try to do it again. I may have missed something from the handbook.
    It seems that I really have to follow all the steps.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Bootstrapping is working now. This time I chose to download the source code first and then bootstrap the system.
    It's been ("building the GNU C Library, GNU Compiler Collection and several other key system programs") almost two hours now.

    Does anyone know how long bootstrapping takes?

    Bootstrapping finished without errors.
    After I typed:
    Code:
    emerge --fetchonly --emptytree system
    emerge --emptytree system
    I got this:

    Code:

    !!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.
    It did not happen right away though.
    Any ideas?

    What can I say, my fault, must learn from my own mistakes.
