So I dediced to install Gentoo in my desktop today.
Everything went out smoothly, but when I boot into the GRUB (I see the splash, I can select the OS, everything works fine, I can even boot into Windows) I get this error:
Code:
Error 1: Filename must be either an absolute pathname or blocklist


I used Genkernel and everything should be in /dev/sda3 (that is, no separate boot or home partition).
This is my /boot/grub/grub.conf
Code:

default 0
timeout 4
splashimage=(hd0,2)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title Gentoo Linux Genkernel
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.10.7-gentoo real_root=/dev/sda3
initrd initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-3.10.7-gentoo

title Windows 8
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1


And this is my /etc/fstab
Code:

/dev/sda3      /      ext3      noatime      0 1
/dev/cdrom      /mnt/cdrom   auto      noauto,ro   0 0
/dev/fd0      /mnt/floppy   auto      noauto      0 0


This is what "ls /boot" tells me:
Code:
boot  grub  initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-3.10.7-gentoo  kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.10.7-gentoo  System.map-genkernel-x86_64-3.10.7-gentoo



Any ideas? Never seen this error before.
Thanks.

kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.10.7-gentoo real_root=/dev/sda3
initrd /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-3.10.7-gentoo

try fixing that and give it a go?
