|My first postr in this forum, so just in case it was posed in a place where it would witness fewer audiance, I a posting it as a sepate topic.
I am desperate to install Gentoo on my system.
I netbooted and installed everything. I tried to install 7 different kernels, but when I rebooted it either got stuck with the last message "Booting Linux....." in the case of 2.6.X kernels and "Remapping the Kernel.... Done" in the case of 2.4.X kernels.
But I can enter into the system with the netboot option, and install various software packages and use them as well.
Its a real pain to have spent so many sleepless nights configuring the system and ending up with a system that needs super expertize (from the point of view of the users who'll be using it) to boot it up.
I simply hate solaris and don't want to get back to it again, which I'ld be forced to do in case the machine fails to boot by itself.
Thanks in advance
