Grub command line instal without initrd - help please
genkernel was only partially successful, but I thought initrd was optional - little did I know ...
sda1 ext2fs /boot
sda4 reiserfs /
I've found my image on (hd0,0) but kernel always gives Error 15 file missing. Have I got to reinstal YET AGAIN to get an initrd or is there a workaround?
machine is HP Pavilion/AMDxp, No Windoze - Hurrah!
image is kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.39-gentoo-r3 and it was all installed and working, links internet and all, before I fouled up on GRUB ...
It has taken this long - a week of sunrise gotobed - because my hard disk has bad sectors which I can dodge with some nifty partitioning. That and the wifi lan. This is the third different version of the tenth different distro that I have actually got this far with - Hurrah!!
Looking forward to your advice, thanks.
PS Nerderello's tutorial has already been useful.
