I just finished installing gentoo in virtualbox. I fiddled with the kernel config a lot and after 2 tries I finally have a booted system :P

It boots fast until it gets to the login prompt. It has a 15 seconds delay before the login prompt completely appears.
At first it will just display:
Code:
This is myhostname.

and then after 15+ seconds, it will continue
Code:
This is myhostname.unknown_domain (Linux-version-gentoo) timenow
myhostname login:


How can I fix this? Is it in the kernel config?

Thanks.

Messages are from /etc/issue (see man 5 issue).

Using OpenRC? Then check booting again with rc_interactive="YES" in /etc/rc.conf.

I actually have the dns_domain_lo set in /etc/conf.d/net, I don't know why I get the unknown_domain issue.

From the handbook:
Quote:
Note
If no domain name is configured, then users will notice they get "This is hostname.(none)" messages at their login screen. This should then be fixed by editing /etc/issue and deleting the string .\O from that file.

Anyway, I forgot to mention that I have a skewed clock warning when I rebooted my system.
Following an another forum post, I reset the date and ran rc-update --update. After rebooting, the 15 second delay is gone but I still have the skewed clock problem.

Running rc-update --update:
Quote:
Caching service dependencies...
Clock skew detected with `/etc/init.d'
Adjusting mtime of `/run/openrc/deptree' to somedate


I remember the last line of the kernel compilation said about a skewed clock, but I just ignored it :oops:
