grub problems!!!

Postby niceguy » Mon Jul 04, 2005 7:22 pm

Hi guys,
Am at the end stage of gentoo installation and after reboot I get the following

root (hda0,0)
filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/hda3
Error 15:file not found


my hda3 is ext3 and hda1 is ext2
I am not too sure how to proceed from here on. Please help guys.
thanks
niceguy

The first line should be "root (hd0,0)".

Is the name of the kernel exactly correct? If you installed the kernel with "make install" as recommended in the magazine, it will be "vmlinuz" or "vmlinuz-2.6.11-gentoo-r6".

Is there any way I can get back into grub.conf without starting the whole process again. At the moment all I got after a reboot is the error message and a grub prompt.

What do you mean "without starting the whole process again?" - do you mean without reinstalling from scratch? Use a boot disk. Either the system rescue of your distro or even tomsrtbt will access the boot partition just fine. Other than that, Grub also has a feature to edit it directly from the main grub menus.

See the section in the magazine on restarting the installation. Boot fro the CD/DVD and chroot back into the Gentoo environment to make your changes.
