Hi,
i've updated my gentoo installation but then i could not login into the console. OK - installation stick and chroot into the system. I decided to delete the system and downloaded the last stage 3 download for AMD.
every step works fine, including the grub installation, create the kernel with and without genkernel, passwd create a new user with the group wheel.
then.... boot
result: i could not login. after chroot i don't found error messages.
what happens: i login with my creadentials and then i got the login screen again.

I'm experience since 2 weeks on it and now i have no idea.
have anybody an idea?

Are there special chars in your password, maybe the keyboard layout changed from livesystem to your booted one

Kunigunde,

You normally set the password twice during a Gentoo install.
Once outside the chroot, so you know it.
Again inside the chroot, so you can log once you reboot.

Unless you set your keymap before the reboot, you will have a USA keymap.
You need to be able to enter your username on whatever keymap you set for your system.

you can test keyboard layout within the login prompt that is not masking the chars.
