    Gentoo boot error


    I installed gentoo from a stage3 tarball and created a kernel using

    Code:
    genkernel --install all
    When I boot with grub it gives error parsing number. Here is the grub entry:

    Code:
    title Gentoo
        root (hd0,1)
        kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.18-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc vga="791" splash="silent" real_root=/dev/hda2
        initrd /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.18-gentoo-r6
    Any obvious problems?

    Code:
    title Gentoo
        root (hd0,1)
        kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.18-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc vga="791" splash="silent" real_root=/dev/hda2
        initrd /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.18-gentoo-r6
    Try this

    Code:
    title Gentoo
        root (hd0,1)
        kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.18-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 vga="791" splash="silent" real_root=/dev/hda2 udev
        initrd /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.18-gentoo-r6
    The rest of your grub.conf or menu.lst is set up correctly?
