Do exactly what you did when you first installed Gentoo:

Mount Gentoo's root partition (for example to /mnt/gentoo) and, if necessary, your boot partition, then chroot into your Gentoo system ("chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash"). Now you should find your kernel sources in /usr/src and be able to fix your config.


Don't you have to complete step 7b, " Installing the Sources " before you can list them? or CD into their directory?
Step 7B is emerge gentoo-sources? I have completed 6a ...Chroot ing, and cant seem to find them. Frank

Excuse me, I was assuming you had already installed the sources, but that they were just missconfigured. Of course you have to emerge the kernel sources if you haven't already done so.

frank56,


When you are at the CDs root prompt, /usr/src/... looks at the CDs /usr/src... not your installs /usr/src/...
To see your install you must mount your partitions at /mnt/gntoo, then your kernel will be at /mnt/gentoo/usr/src/linux before you chroot.

However, you must chroot to work on the kernel. This somewhat outdated guide tells how to mount your partitions and chroot. You will need to customise it to suit your own install
