Ok, here's the storie of my Gentoo'd laptop which never let's me fix it:
First, I noticed that I couldn't open up term windows under a regular user, only in root
I took a look at the kernel and noticed that several options that the Gentoo manual asked u to check somehow got unchecked
, namely DEV FS support. Even after recompiling the kernel and copying it over several times, Gentoo still gives a 15 warning message saying that I need to load DEVFS support.
Okay....I searched the net and was told to install udev and hotplug support (and add hotplug to the default runlevel on startup). Did that, got a kernel panic with flash caps lock and scroll lock lights. Restarted, booted, but still it says I don't have DEV FS support
. Does asnybody have any idea what is going on?
