Hello everyone, I'm new too gentoo.

While installing it I came across a problem, this happens every time I boot without live CD.

Code:
root(hd0,0)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-3.10.7-gentoo-r5 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/sda3
Error 15:File not found


Any help would be appreciated guys!

Actually just read similar thread and its not worth all the effort I'll just re-install and try to install grub 2 this time.

Wish me luck!

well, good luck!

But that error just says that grub can't find the kernel on /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-3.10.7-gentoo-r5. Maybe it is misspelled or not on the first partition (0,0) or you miss the /boot symlink on the boot partition or something like that. So just boot the livecd, mount the boot patrition and watch out for the kernel-file-(name) and the boot symlink. correct grub.conf and you should be fine....

But you can never get enough practice with installing from scratch! :wink:

Cheers

dont reinstall, just install grub2... or lilo it up, but i like grub2 finding my kernels and taking out the chance of spelling errors.....
