hehe got it to install with no hitches using the terminal instead of the GTK, but im thinking it maybe bypassed errors instead of terminating the install.
Gentoo still boots, but gnome gdm isnt working, getting some strange error messages. Basically about 5 seconds into boot my screen flashes, which tells me its trying to load a GUI...happens 3 times then it quits out back to the command line login. tells me theres a problem with KDM, vesa, mouse, and something else which i cant remember haha.
Also at the end of the list it says No drivers available.
First thing i tried was startx, then i tried Emerging gdm and gnome. The emerging worked fine, but still no graphical interface, and im not familiar with many linux commands so being restricted to the command line is a big hinderance.
Also, it says i have 3 config files needing to be updated, but i dont know how to do that, either says "config can only handle one package at a time for now!!" or "packages needed for emerge are masked".
Should be cool tho my friend is headed round, he's running on gentoo/gnome and should be able to fix it. At least GRub is working now, it was generating an error code and stopping me from even being able to boot windows HAHA.
I'm amazed at the response time in this forum tho...will be nice in 5 years time when i figure this whole thing out - maybe i can repay the amazing community with some gems of my own
