Installed gentoo, couple of questions
Well, I've installed gentoo (2005.1, following the handbook) and I have a couple of questions.
First, when I choose gentoo in the grub menu (note that I didn't install grub with gentoo, I just added an entry for it in the menu.list file in Kanotix), I get "you passed an undefined mode number". I think I have to add something to the menu.list entry, just not sure what? I already have vga=0x317, anything else?
Next, after this, I get another error, "The root block device is unspecified or not detected". I type in /dev/hda8, which is the partition gentoo is on, and it works, I suspect this is also some problem in the menu.list file.
Also, another general question: when I emerge something (like links, which I'm using to type this, hehehe), I get the message that some config files need updating. Should I just update all of them? Or do I go through all of them and see if any should be left alone (in this case, will I be getting the same message for any files which I decided to leave alone?)
Thanks in advance.
