[Gentoo] Grub not booting ??


Hello!

Just installed Gentoo (following the install guide). Now after rebooting i only get a spashimage and thats it. The system stops there and I cant enter Gentoo

I guess it must be something i wrote wring in the grub.conf file.
Problem is, how do I get to that file now?

If I run the LiveCD again Im starting from the CD enviroment and im not sure how to jump back to the HD so that i can access grub.conf and edit it...

Pls help!

Just boot from the livecd as you did when you installed Gentoo. Then mount your partitions to their correct locations - this is all described in the installation handbook so use it as a reference. When done mounting, simply chroot over to your installation on disk: chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash. Once "inside" you should type source /etc/profile and then you can proceed to checking your Grub configuration.

Did you mount your partitions after booting from the livecd? This is all described in the handbook so basically follow it but don't destroy what you already have installed (i.e. don't run fdisk ).
