Gentoo kernel config woes
Gentoo requires the enabling of dev fs and automount support for installation, as stated in the install doc from gentoo.org. Yet the dev fs and automount options in menuconfig are misssing. I went into .config and turned on the flags for both. Then went to compile the kernel. Compilation gave me an error in the base.c file (I would post it, but it's way too long and in the gentoo install screens). I tried different combinations with the flags enabled/disabled for the dev fs and automount options, and still an error. The only way the kerenel will compile is with the flags both off, but leaves me without dev fs support... I've tried installing without it before, and gentoo wouldn't work. Please help, as I don't think I can live without "emerge" much longer... too... many... dependencies... can't install... anything... in linux... ack!
Note: I was going to post this in the distro forum, but I didn't see gentoo among the forums.
