booting the liveusb and running ifconfig should identify the interface name, probably starting with en

from the chroot:
Code:
emerge python-updater
python-updater | wgetpaste
emerge --info | wgetpaste
eselect profile list | wgetpaste
wgetpaste /var/tmp/portage/sys-boot/grub-2.00_p5107-r2/temp/build.log
post the url's returned.

possible work around, from the chroot:
Code:
ln -s /proc/self/fd /dev/fd
emerge grub

lenosas,

It failed because the grub.info file is missing and the ebuild says
Code:
* The specific snippet of code:
 *           mv "${ED%/}"/usr/share/info/grub{,2}.info || die;
that that is a fatal error.

The grub.info file should be in the tarball.
Do emerge --sync to see if you get a new ebuild. Maybe the tarball you have really is broken but the digests matched, or it would have failed the download.

from the chroot:
To eliminate a bad package problem, suggest change to a newer version of grub:
Code:
nano /etc/portage/package.keywords
edit to include
Quote:
=sys-boot/grub-2.02_beta2 ~amd64

Code:
emerge --sync
emerge grub:2

if grub merges continue with the handbook steps:
Code:
grub2-install /dev/sda
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

If not:
Suggest trying legacy grub:
Code:
emerge grub-static
If grub-static merges, run:
Code:
ls -l /boot
note the name of the kernel and initramfs (if used) letter for letter; the name in /boot must be reproduced precisely in grub.conf.
Code:
nano -w /boot/grub/grub.conf
and edit to

# Which listing to boot as default. 0 is the first, 1 the second etc.
default 0
# How many seconds to wait before the default listing is booted.
timeout 30

# Partition where the kernel image (or operating system) is located
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-3.12.21-gentoo-r1 root=/dev/sda4
or with initramfs:

root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.12.21-gentoo-r1 real_root=/dev/sda4
initrd /boot/initramfs-genkernel-amd64-3.12.21-gentoo-r1
run
Code:
 grub
in grub run:
Code:
root (hd0,1)
setup (hd0)
exit
exit the chroot,
Code:
reboot
if you get a kernel panic take and post a picture.

must be identical to value(s) in /boot
