stuck on vesafb: scrolling: redraw
so i just installed gentoo last night, my first linux install, and everything seemed to be going alright except that when i rebooted, it got stuck on the line "vesafb: scrolling: redraw". i used the genkernel, and don't currently have any video settings in grub...i'm not sure if i need them, i just did it the way the handbook said to. any ideas short of making my own kernel?

Boot up the LiveCD on that machine, mount the partitions again, chroot, and run genkernel --menuconfig all. When you are at the kernel configuration menu go to
Device Drivers --->
Graphics support --->
VESA VGA graphics support
VESA driver type --->
The VESA driver type that you have selected now should be vesafb-tng, change that to just vesafb. After that press ESC a bunch of times until you get a menu asking if you want to save your new kernel configuration, simply hit yes and follow the rest of genkernels instructions.
