I have been using SuSE for awhile, and still love it, but finally thought I have progressed to the point I may successfully be able to do a gentoo install to test out the distro that never would install in all my trials having been such a noob. I have seen many posts about gentoo and installing it, even many other grub problems. But I got a brand new one. I followed the gentoo handbook for an x86_64 install, and all has gone flawlessly thus far, up until it took me about an hour to configure grub just to get grub-install to work.(I had been getting /boot/grub/stage1 cannot be read.) Thrilled, I rebooted only to be greeted by the grub CLI. CRAP!
Info: I have 3 HDs:
/dev/sda with sda2(XFS holding / and /boot, etc) and sda1(swap)
/dev/sdb(reiserfs 3.6 data)
/dev/hda(reiserfs 3.6 data)
The grub.conf finally ended up looking roughly like this before I finally got the "grub-install /dev/sda" command to successfully take.
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.15
kernel /boot/gentoo-kernel-2.6.15 root=/dev/sda2 vesafb=0x31B
So... I figure the pretty obvious point here is though grub obviously installed finally, I have paths or some other such issue in my grub.conf. Can anyone help me out with that?
Edit: I forgot to mention, now that I am in the grub CLI, not unix or a linux CLI... I am a bit lost in commands and don't know exactly how to change anything.
