I've been at this damn install stage for practically three days. I kept on running into problems over and over again, always after I completed the core of the install, there was something small that I messed up.
Anyway, here is my problem now. I compiled the kernel, everything went fine. I made sure I did not do anything that the Gentoo install guide did not mention and tried my best to do everything that I did mention. So here I am, picking my bootloader (the past 3+ attempts I tried GRUB with no avail). I decide to use LILO, so I follow it's instructions, then I come to the part where I have to run /sbin/lilo to update the lilo loader and I come up with this message:
Warning '/proc/partitions' does not match '/dev' directory structure..
Name change: '/dev/ide/host0/bus0/targe0/disc' -> '/dev/hda'
The kernel was compiled with DEVFS_FS, but 'devfs=mount' was ommitted
as a kernel command-line boot parameter; hence, the '/dev' directory
structure does not reflect DEVFS_FS device names.
Now from what I am reading, this should be an easy fix if I can remove the 'devfs=mount' omition line, but one problem: I do not know what the hell DEVFS_FS nor do I know where this parameter would be. It was never mentioned in the install guide, so I'm pretty much lost from here.
I have Windows XP installed w/ two other primary partitions. So it takes hda1-hda3.
Hda4 I made into a extended partition and divided it into 3 logical partitions (HDA5-HDA7).
