GRUB Issue (Given Prompt, Dunno What To Do)
Hi everyone. I am now reporting from Knoppix, with Gentoo all configured.
Anyway, after doing all of the configuration, I rebooted and was unable to do much of anything. I ended up in a prompt that was:
And I could enter options like "boot" (which told me I had to load a kernel first), "kernel" (which told me I need a definite path, but nothing is mounted), and such things.
I tried the options, using both definite paths and GRUB paths.
My mount points are:
/dev/hdb2 [hd(1,1)] = /boot
/dev/hdb4 [hd(1,3)] = /
My grub.conf is as follows:
# Which listing to boot as default. 0 is the first, 1 the second etc.
# How many seconds to wait before the default listing is booted.
# Nice, fat splash-image to spice things up :)
# Comment out if you don't have a graphics card installed
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.11-r3
# Partition where the kernel image (or operating system) is located
kernel /kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r3 root=/dev/hdb4
# The next four lines are only if you dualboot with a Windows system.
# In this case, Windows is hosted on /dev/hda1.
Fortunately, I am running in Knoppix, which is definitely the greatest Gentoo-boot option ever. Thanks to you all for helping me with the boot, and if you can fix this, I'll love you all forever!
