UPDATE: Fri 17 Apr 2020 08:42:16 PM EDT
After another attempt at installing the firmware I noticed a message about some files in /etc needing manual intervention. I read some man pages and It became apparent that I needed to rename /etc/portage/._cfg0004_portage.licence to /etc/portage/portage.licence after verifying it looked good. Seems it was just a licence override holding me back. The kernel modules have successfully built and this problem has been resolved. Note to self, read before asking questions. My apologies, I should have known better having come from an arch based distro.[/i]


=================================

In the amd64 handbook for Gentoo I am at compiling and installing the kernel. I just finished carefully selecting everything with menuconfig for my Ryzen 1700x which I read that I need to include the firmware but I encounter this error

Code:
no rule to make target '/lib/firmware/amd-ucode/microcode_amd_fam17h.bin', needed  y 'drivers/base/firmware_loader/builtin/amd-ucode/microcode_amd_fam17h.bin.gen.o' stop.
whew thats hard to type on a tablet.

I did a
Code:
find / -type d -name amd-ucode
which says
Code:
/usr/src/linux-5.4.28-gentoo/drivers/base/firmware_loader/builtin/amd-ucode
I installed the firmware according to https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Ryzen and also adjusted my USEto
Code:
USE="initramfs redistributable savedconfig unknown-licence"


I am at a loss as to how to solve this, I think it means that it cannot build the bin of the firmware I specified, because it cannot find a make file? not sure what to try next, any ideas?[/quote]

Gentoo has tools for conf file upgrades, etc-update and dispatch-conf.

I am guessing you are referring to the .config in /usr/src/linux which is 4812 lines long. I made this pastebin which expires in one month https://pastebin.com/8ByLR8G5
I used the menuconfig tool but later I had used genkernel to create me a initramfs (not sure if this was necessary or if in the process it overwrite the config I made manually) In either case I am past the compiling the kernel part now and at the stage of installing system tools :)

@Jaglover I appreciate this and ended up discovering that in the man pages however at the time I tried to use etc-update it was not found on my system. I belive the reason is that at this stage I booted into Manjaro and chrooted into the Gentoo install but forgot to update the environment, it was not finding blkid either until I remembered to source /etc/profile. This is a huge learning exercise for me and is counting towards my newyears resolution I made that I will stop being lazy this year. Thus far I have read a good half of the book on the Awk Programming language, and now Learning how to install, configure and use Gentoo. I feel these are big steps towards meeting my resolution. I hope by the years end I can say I am at least not as lazy :)

Since I am becoming a new Gentoo user during the Covid quarentine period does this mean I am a Quarentine Boomer? eh prob not funny but I try.
