If you're not using the menu-entry in refind.conf, then AFAIK you must pass arguments to the kernel in the kernel's built-in cmdline, which for me is:
Code:
CONFIG_CMDLINE_BOOL=y
CONFIG_CMDLINE="root=/dev/sda4 quiet loglevel=0"


How do I input this via the kernels command line ?

Thanks for that spot khay.

I have changed that now.

I think i should add.

For some reason the menu entrys in my refind.conf file dont work.

so i cannot pass these arguments via the bootloader. How else can i pass them ?

Either add the values needed by hand to your .config or just use 'make menuconfig', there's an option in 'processor type and features'

Wow thanks for the quick response. I've done that and the kernel now boots.

But now I'm hit with well.... I don't know what.

Hangs there with a blinking cursor.

EDIT

There's another and easier way to do this: Create a refind_linux.conf file in the kernel's directory. This file looks something like this:

Code:

"Boot with defaults"         "root=/dev/sda3 ro quiet splash vt.handoff=7"
"Boot into single-user mode" "root=UUID=1cd95082-bce0-494c-a290-d2e642dd82b7 ro single"
"Boot without graphics"      "root=UUID=1cd95082-bce0-494c-a290-d2e642dd82b7 ro"


Each line defines one entry for the boot menu's sub-entry. The first line is the default. Each line contains two fields, which are normally enclosed in quotes: a name for the sub-entry and the kernel options.

For more on this, see the rEFInd documentation's page on booting Linux.

The kernel developers were working on something similar, with options to appear in a file called linux.conf, but I haven't checked the latest kernels to see if this has yet been implemented. If so, I don't know what the file format should be.

If you're using rEFInd 0.4.5 or earlier, you need to add "manual" to the "scanfor" line. I changed this in 0.4.6 to include "manual" as one of the defaults, so you could also upgrade to 0.4.6.

@srs5694, while you're here, I shot you an email ~1 month ago describing some troubles with theming. Did you get that since I haven't heard back, yet.

Brilliant, I have a kernel up and running.

Now I didn't expect my wireless to just work.

Not sure what i should do to get it working.


Code:

03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4331 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 02)
        Subsystem: Apple Inc. AirPort Extreme
        Kernel driver in use: bcma-pci-bridge


I'm sure that's not the right module

Can someone please guide me ?

Got the same card in my system, just take the related parts of my config, emerge the b43-firmware and set it up with wpa_supplicant directly or some tool if your DE/WM provides one.
