your pendrive may need some "settle" time:
Quote:
title Gentoo Linux
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/your-kernel-name rootdelay=15 root=/dev/sdb3


your pendrive may not be seen as sdb by the kernel

if the problem persists take and post a picture of the panic screen

@DONAHUE:
Good news! I have found "the root of all evil" LOL.

The file /boot/grub/device.map was wrong:
Code:
(hd1) /dev/sdb


I have fixed grub.conf as you said, using hd0 instead hd1 but haven't changed device.map; so I changed it to this:
Code:
(hd0) /dev/sdb

And all worked fine. Next step, I'll try to remove that "rootdelay" and complete the install.

I like gnome, but I've planned to use XFCE at this time; I've readed that gnome uses systemd and it requires several adjustments; so, I'll follow the KISS method :).

____Edited___

As information purposes, the pendrive isn't able to boot without the "rootdelay"

Ok, I have no network in my brand new gentoo environment.

Code:
ifconfig  -a
??
most likely the kernel config does not have the driver enabled

boot cd, run
Code:
lspci -nnk | grep -i -A 5 ethernet
post the results here
barring accident, this should reveal the name of driver that must be included in the kernel configuration to support your ethernet NIC; if no result appears post the entire result of
Code:
lspci -nnk
.
do you intend to use network manager, wicd, gentoo style networking, or something else?

I want the network working... whatever the path is. I only know network manager (is the same guy of gnome DE?).

It just gets timeout waiting for this...
And now it boots no more; freezes at "starting local".

@DONAHUE:

YES! WE HAVE NETWORK!

I have recompiled the kernel and followed the steps from network manage's how to. And when my gentoo boots, things seems to be normal.


ifconfig -a
Code:
lo: flags=73<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING>  mtu 65536
        inet 127.0.0.1  netmask 255.0.0.0
        inet6 ::1  prefixlen 128  scopeid 0x10<host>
        loop  txqueuelen 0  (Local Loopback)
        RX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0

        sit  txqueuelen 0  (IPv6-in-IPv4)
        RX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)

        TX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0

        ether 94:39:e5:ff:18:6f  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)

        TX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0


I have not links avaliable; I have tested the network with ping and it reached the site, so I think network is ok at my gentoo environment.
I'm at work now and I'll perform some tests at home. And I'll keep bugging you guys! :oops:


Once more, thanks for all the help!

General use. I'm concerned about learning gentoo's way.
It's the first time I install a compiled distro and I want to learn how to adjust all the system to my notebook specs.
After I can complete the testing install into my pendrive, I'll do it again into HDD.
Next step, I think is install the DE; XFCE seems to be simple enough for a begginer.

One more question: how can I use emerge behind a proxy?

I have an automatic proxy script that runs at http://foo/proxy/foo.pac (for an example) and it has no port; I've tried to set this, by using:
Code:
export http_proxy="http://foo/proxy/foo.pac"
(same for ftp_proxy and rsync_proxy)

So, I tried to emerge something, but after a long time, it shows an error (couldn't reach the servers and download the requested data). I'm sure it's because the damn proxy.

Open a "Latest version, all in one page, printable version" of the gentoo handbook and search for proxy ; no proxy here

Thank you guys for helping me in this journey!
I have finally complete the install and I'm a new gentoo adicted :P
Now I'll learn more and improve my system.

Thank you again, for all the help!
