didn't you compile your kernel? you really should have done that while installing.. :wink: How did you install your kernel?

this are the steps to get some compiled kernel sources (and so fix the error):

Code:

$ cd /usr/src/linux
$ make ps3_defconfig
($ make menuconfig)
$ make


the "make menuconfig" step is optitional as ps3_defconfig should give you a good kernel config.

Someone should add a note about the $ make ps3_defconfig command to http://overlays.gentoo.org/proj/cell/wiki/InstallGentooOnPS3. It's a good thing to know about.
