I'm installing Gentoo on my G3 B/W through SSH. Everyhing has gone fine, but now when i want to configure the yaboot, it can't fint the kernel!

I typed:

Code:
livecd gentoo # yaboot --chroot /mnt/gentoo


and right before that i typed:

Code:
livecd gentoo # exit


To exit the chroot just like it sayd...!
The kernel should be in /boot/kernel-2.6.10-gentoo-r6 but i can't find it there...=S
Think i've manage to do something wrong...what should i do now?
One thing to note is that i can run over to my mac and change things over there i think, that terminal says:

Code:
 livecd root #


(btw, if i type

Code:
 livecd root # ls /mnt/gentoo/boot


On the mac, then the kernel is there...=/

If you have a seperate boot partition, then make sure that is mounted under /mnt/gentoo/boot.

Code:
livecd gentoo # yaboot --chroot /mnt/gentoo

That's yabootconfig --chroot /mnt/gentoo, not yaboot ...etc

don't you get a prompt where you can tell it where the kernel is? If you do (I do and I thought everybody else does as well), type in the location of the kernel - e.g. /mnt/gentoo/boot/kernel-2.6.10-r8.

I do but it says it cannot find the kernel even though it is there (doing ls /mnt/boot shows the kernel.

when you type in the location, do you use the location from the non-chrooted environment? that, is, you should use
/mnt/gentoo/boot/{whatever} and not /boot/{whatever}.

Sure do. I ended up writing a manual yaboot.conf based on what some other people had used. I'v managed to boot into my new linux distro...Now I just have to make sure I can boot OS X as well.

Thanks,
Glen
