Okay,

I hate being a newbie, but I guess you have to start somewhere. I got all the way through the gentoo install, using the genkernel and using lilo, but at the very end where you are supposed to do this

# exit
cdimage ~# cd
cdimage ~# umount /mnt/gentoo/boot /mnt/gentoo/dev /mnt/gentoo/proc /mnt/gentoo
cdimage ~# reboot

After doing the exit, then the cd

I get an error saying it doesn't know what unmount is, so I decided to skip that line (I guess that was a bad idea) and just rebooted.

It went into lilo, began to boot gentoo, then I get this:

ext2fs_check_if_mount: No such file or directory while determining whether /dev/root is mounted
fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/root
/dev/root:
The superblock could not be read or does not descirbe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem ( and not swap of ufs or something selse_, then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 (device)

*filesystem couldnt be fixed :( [!!]
give root password for maintenence
of typer control-d to continue


Pretty much what I am asking is, what should I do? :-/

Thanks

Tim

Looks like you didnt set up your /etc/fstab, look over the handbook to get an idea what it should look like.

I guess you wrote "unmount" instead of "umount" :) Not the reason of the problem. DownSet is right :)

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Duplicate Threads.
See here and as already pointed out, for some daft reason you unmount with the umount command.
