Hi all. I have been having a bit of fun trying to get gentoo on my 2nd hand V1.0 Xbox.

Performed the hw mod to allow me to flash the bios and now have Cromwell 2.40 :)

Booted from the gentoo Xbox live cd and floowed the x86 install guide aling with a build guide from the wiki. All going wonderfully, most happy.

Buit my kernel, alled what I thought were the correct lined to linuxboot.cfg and get:
Code:
Loading /initrd-2.6.11.7 - 1663792 bytes
Bootconfig : kernel /kernel-2.6.11.7
Bootconfig : initrd /initrd-2.6.11.7
Bootconfig : Kernel commandline :
root=/dev/ram0 real_root=/dev/hda3 init=/linuxrc ramdisk_size=819
2 splash=silent kbd-reset video=xbox:640x480,nohwcursor devfs=mount acpi=hw
kernel 2.6.11.7 (root@livecd) #1 Sun Jun 12 16:20:21 BST 2005

                                       Starting Linux


and there it hangs and I have no idea what is going on. I have tried building my kernel by hand and useing genkernel but to no sucess, any help appreciated, here is a copy of my linuxboot.cfg file

Code:

title Gentoo 2.6.11.7 for Xbox
kernel kernel-2.6.11.7
initrd initrd-2.6.11.7
append root=/dev/ram0 real_root=/dev/hda3 init=/linuxrc ramdisk_size=8192 splash=silent kbd-reset video=xbox:640x480,nohwcursor devfs=mount acpi=hw


Thanks again for any any help you can offer,

Have you tried booting w/o bootsplash? I think I would try that first to see if you get any output that is more useful than what you've seen so far.
