Long story short: I hopelessly borked my python stuff wile trying to resolve blockers late one night while very tired. Decided to save /home and reinstall was probably less trouble than resolving the issue. I've never had much luck with kernels newer than 3.5.x but from the minimal install CD went ahead and emerged gentoo-sources-3.17.7 and configured it as best as I can remember. It starts to boot, but the video appears out of sync, two scrambled horizontal bars or skewed output, then it hangs. I foolishly failed to save my old .config, and though I am fairly familiar with make menuconfig, I just don't know where to go next. I have a pci-e nvidia card and have tried turning off all framebuffer and agpgart stuff in kernel. How can I tell what's hanging the boot process? Thanks.
