I haven't used Gentoo in 8 long years. Not since we still did stage 1 installs. I've decided to take a look at Gentoo again after becoming somewhat disenchanted with Arch.

My question is pretty stupid. Like really stupid. I should know this but I can't find the answer.

I can get through the majority of the install process and get stuck here of all places:

Code:
find /lib/modules/[b]<kernel version>[/b]/ -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*.ko' | less


If I'm using Genkernel, what *exactly* is the designation I should be using in place of <kernel version>

You should skip the step as udev/eudev/systemd will do that automatically. The chances of you actually needing to manually load a module is quite small.

Visceral,

At that step, there should be exactly one kernel version in /lib/modules/ that's the one you need.
Tab completion is your friend.

Having answered your question, the automatic module loading is fairly good.
Its usually safe to skip that instruction.
