Hello,

I am trying to install Gentoo on my 15" pBook, hit another block. Once everything is done and I try to unmount the directories it says it can't because they are busy. I tried "ps" and quitting everything and I still couldn't do it. When I tried to just reboot, it says it couldn't unmount the filesystems.

So, when I hard-reboot the computer, yaboot comes up, I select GNU/linux, the kernel loads but then it fails to boot. It says something like it is unable to mount the filesystem due to incompatible options. I'm guessing I compiled the kernel incorrectly or something.

I would like to use a pre-made .config file and X11 config file like it says in the HowTo, but I don't understand exactly how to do that.

Thanks,
Chester

A pre-made .config you can download, and just drop in your /usr/src/linux/ directory, and then manually build your kernel from there (make && make modules_install)

As for the filesystem errors, did you remember to build in support for the file system type(s) you formatted your disk with? CHeck your /etc/fstab maybe?

Chester,


I would prefer you to stop making new posts every "block" you run in to...
is it possible to keep all your installation "block" in one thread?

thank you
