Sorry to dig this thread up. But what if I didn't use LVMs, and just installed to 3 partitions (boot, root, home) and this is my GRUB config after doing that:Code:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda # # Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file # NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that # all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg. # root (hd0,0) # kernel /kernel-genkernel real_root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 # initrd /initramfs-genkernel #boot=/dev/sda1 default=0 timeout=6 splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz title Sabayon Linux x86 3.3 root (hd0,0) kernel /kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.20-sabayon-r3 dolvm2 root=/dev/ram0 ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 quiet init=/linuxrc splash=silent,theme:sabayon vga=791 CONSOLE=/dev/tty1 dodmraid pci=nomsi resume2=swap:/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol01 initrd /initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.20-sabayon-r3

I tried editing grub.conf using the sample.conf as a guide but it didn't seem to work. I may have messed up with the kernel or something..

It still isn't working. I also just tried to re-install the bootloader (Sabayon live cd has an option for this) and that didn't work either.
