Thread: grub problems
08-17-04, 11:18 AM #1
Good morning, I'm tring to setup gentoo with grub for a boot loader. I haven't dealt with grub before and I must say I'm rather flustered by it. I have followed the gentoo install guide to the letter aside from changing partition numbers as mine are different. I get the following error when I try to install.
Could not find device for /boot/boot: Not found or not a valid boot device.
The command I run to install grub is as follows
grub-install --root-directory=/boot /dev/hda
I have also tried
which returns the same error. My grub.conf file looks like this
kernel /bzImage root=/dev/hdb2 vga=788
Does anyone see anything wrong here? Here is my partition layout as well
Edit:On a side note is it possible to force portage to emerge lilo instead? Everytime I try to emerge it it tells me it's masked.
