chekdalaypa,

What is the full name of the stage3 file you used?
It should still be in / in your chroot.

Which CPU type did you select in the kernel?

Hi NeedySeagoon,

Could one of the issues be that I used the handbook from the install DVD, via the desktop link?

I thought I had read everything twice but something is not making sense. nothing in the hand book i was using commented on a 64 bit.

but I found a site that does, https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:Main_Page however the core 2 is left out in the info.

So I am not sure where to look.

thank you,

Chek

chekdalaypa,

Oops. stage3-i686-20140909.tar.bzip.bz2
It says i686 in its name. Thats a 32 bit tarball. For a 64 bit install you need to start from the amd64 tarball.

What did you boot from?
I suspect that was 32 bit media too, or the chroot step would have needed an extra parameter that is not documented in the handbook.

Your CPU is indeed 64 bit. To get a 64 bit install, you need to boot a 64 bit system and start with the amd64 stage3.

Lastly, see the kernel help on both
Code:
│ │ ( ) Intel P4 / older Netburst based Xeon │ │
│ │ (X) Core 2/newer Xeon │ │
to make sure you choose the correct option for your CPU.
I don't know which is correct for you.
