It seems like somethings wrong with "root=/dev/ram0" but I don't use grub, so I wouldn't know. I would suggest using the liveCD to go back in and installing lilo instead. Lilo is MUCH easier to setup, in my opinion.

Sorry I can't be more help.

you have to remount the partitions first
Code:

mount <your root partition> /mnt/gentoo
mount <your boot partition> /mnt/gentoo/boot
mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc


and then chroot

Please help me!

p.s I appologize my english!

You probably made a typo in grub.conf
Mount your boot-partition and check what the kernel is named, then change the kernel line in grub.conf .It should probably be something like:
kernel-2.6.5-gentoo-rX. No need to re-install or anything!

Hi,
I'm expiriencing the same problem with grub here...

I have a A7V mobo, which has a promise ATA100 controller. my master HD is hde.

I am working on a gentoo 1.4 machine which had kernel 2.4.xx on it (these kernels are booting just fine).

To boot from 2.6.5 I simply press 'c' and then write kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.5-vmlinuz-2.6.5-gentoo-r1

Here is some info on my sytem:
Code:
mediapc boot # ls
System.map                       boot                         config.old                vmlinuz-2.4.22-gentoo-r7.old
System.map-2.4.22                config                       grub                      vmlinuz-2.4.26
System.map-2.4.22-gentoo-r7      config-2.4.22                kernel-2.4.22             vmlinuz-2.6.5-gentoo-r1
System.map-2.4.22-gentoo-r7.old  config-2.4.22-gentoo-r7      kernel.config             vmlinuz-2.6.5-gentoo-r1.old
System.map-2.4.26                config-2.4.22-gentoo-r7.old  kernel.config.old         vmlinuz.old
System.map-2.6.5-gentoo-r1       config-2.4.26                lost+found
System.map-2.6.5-gentoo-r1.old   config-2.6.5-gentoo-r1       vmlinuz
System.map.old                   config-2.6.5-gentoo-r1.old   vmlinuz-2.4.22-gentoo-r7


Code:

boot # pwd
/boot


Code:
 boot # cat grub/grub.conf
# Which listing to boot as default. 0 is the first, 1 the second etc.
default 0
# How many seconds to wait before the default listing is booted.
timeout 30
# Nice, fat splash-image to spice things up :)
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

# NOTE: The next line is critical for boot!
none                    /proc           proc            defaults                0 0
none        /dev/shm  tmpfs   defaults          0 0

# glibc 2.2 and above expects tmpfs to be mounted at /dev/shm for
# POSIX shared memory (shm_open, shm_unlink).
# (tmpfs is a dynamically expandable/shrinkable ramdisk, and will
#  use almost no memory if not populated with files)
# Adding the following line to /etc/fstab should take care of this:

none                    /dev/shm        tmpfs           defaults                0 0



I'd appriciate any help you can give me!!

Thanks!

mount your boot partition first. grub.conf is on that partition.

Oka! I shall mount... when I try to mount, this happens:
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot
mount: mount point /mnt/gentoo/boot does not exist!

first create the mountpoints then mount the partition:
# mkdir /mnt/gentoo
# mkdir /mnt/gentoo/boot
# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot

Press 'e' to go to the grub edit mode. Then select the kernel line and press 'e' again. Use grub's tabcompletion feature to find the actual filename of the kernel. Position the cursor just after 'kernel /kernel-2.' and press the tab key. Grub should show you the files that match.

kerenl should be kernel :wink:
