Hi.

I like to getting help on making a new install with kernel 2.6.38-r6

When I try to install Gentoo with a kernel 2.6.38-r6 form the lastest livecd mininal install, is I reach to using genkernel all and just following the handbook (but it is only using kernel 2.6.34-r7 here).
When run command genkernel all is i getting the first thing done by genkenrel compile the image file fine, but when compiling the modules gives 5-7 or more errots.
Then is I then run emerge app-misc/mc (midnight commander) and it seem to get about 7 modules and 3 libs compiled too with the last file as mc.
Then do i try run genkernel all again and now is there nothign of errors with the modules compiling, and genkernel all compile it all the the end fine look it like.

So i go on and comes to grub there is the last work do before reboot.
emerge grub
nano -w /boot/grub/grub.conf and edit and setup grub.cnf + save it again as I have done lot of time before.
the next is now t install grub on to the sda harddisks MBR sector.

grub-install --no-floppy /dev/sda (there is no floppy on the computer)
here is grub comes with about 6-7 lines of I/O error reading fd0
then end with /boot/grub/stage1 file is not found
This file is where it shall be in /boot/grub/

Then I then try grub install the manually way
grub --no-floppy
grub:> root (hd0,0)
grub:> setup (hd0)
Here come the same error of the stage1 file
grub:> quit

Try then a reboot

when I boot by harddisk
All go fine on til gentoo x86_64 reach to mdev and it stops here with error.
No /dev/sda3 is been mount

Remember grub guesses it does not know which drive will be hd0 as determined by bios.
Code:
grub

Code:
find /boot/grub/stage1
returns in format (hdx,y)
Code:
root (hdx,y)

Code:
setup (hdx)
quit
