I just installed gentoo using the wiki. after booting it hangs on
Code:
loading initial ramdisk ...
But I can see my keyboard light up and can ssh to my comp but no login prompt is on my screen.

thanks in advance, robin

Edit: I can login and type commands, I just don't see anything happening.
final edit: it was the framebuffer, compiled the kernel again with different options. Thanks for showing its fixed now :)

13c64 ...

it sounds as though you're not getting a framebuffer, so more details are required. What initramfs is in use, what is enabled WRT framebuffer in the kernel, kernel version, graphics card, etc.

best ... khay

just followed the handbook for amd64. I have a nvidia gtx 760. Compiled the kernel with the automatic program.

edit: copied my kernel from arch, working now, will search for kernel options
