ok, so i ended up reinstalling. and now all I'm getting is a blank screen, and a flashing cursor. I folowed the online install guide to the letter and still it does not boot. anyone have any ideas why?
I copied the bzImage,System.map and .config over to /boot as it said, I did not use genkernel, so there was no initrd to copy as well. using lilo as the boot loader. I'm begining to think gentoo doesn't like me.
this is on a separate drive from windows, and the boot loader is on the same drive as linux. all on hdb which is 20 gb's.
my partitioning scheme is
hdb1 = boot @ 64MB's ext2
hdb2 = swap @ 1024MB's
hdb3 = root @ 6.5GB's ext3
hdb4 = Extended
hdb5 = home @ ~11 GB's ext3
my lilo.conf looked like this
is that right? or am i also supposed to have System.map (systemmap-2.6.9-gentoo-r1) also in there, i noticed MDK has a link to it iirc.
