HELP! Gentoo Linux Install PROBLEM with grub.
I have installed Gentoo using a stage three tarball literally SEVERAL times in a row with the SAME results EVERY time.
I have followed the handbook religiously and still it does not work, at all. What happens is after I restart, it loads to grub and does nothing. I can type in some minimal commands but I get stuff like filesystem not specified, must load kernel first, and the like. I did edit my boot/grub/grub.conf file to include my kernel (kernel-2.6.25-gentoo-r7), I have tried several different things with the SAME results... NOTHING.
I am installing on a Dell Inspiron 8200 Laptop. 1.8Ghz, 60GB 6400RPM Hard Drive, 1GB 266Mhz RAM...
Any help would be appreciated. I am only going to give Gentoo ONE MORE try, then I am going back to the really cool xubuntu with xfce and compiz fusion, though not as fast as gentoo.
Is there instructions on the internet that is accurate, or more accurate? its absolutely crazy, I have been without a computer for four days not because of this. I have been able to use links while installing gentoo though. Its a FAST black and white web browser ;)
