Hi!

Have been a Gentoo user for probably ten years, but having some problems with my first full disk encryption install. I've been following Sakaki's excellent guide, but I ran into a problem during install which may be the source of some problems, though I don't see why.

I ran buildkernel targeting a USB stick which I discovered was comically small. No problem, I grabbed a new one, reformatted it according to the guide steps I used earlier, transferred the contents of the original USB stick, and reset the buildkernel.conf to point to the new partition UUID, rebuilt the kernel from a clean state, and everything seemed to be OK.

But upon reboot, the boot partition on the USB drive is not being found. Here's an image of the terminal at startup: https://iili.io/J087qX.jpg

Looking for any suggestions.

Thanks.

Looks like the issue arose from the use of RescueCD rather than the Gentoo live iso (which wouldn't boot on this system). Ran genkernel manually to reset things, and I was able to proceed. Thanks to https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1103620-start-0.html for good advice.
