gentoo n00b here, I have been successful(ish) in installing gentoo from stage 1 so far, but after the first reboot, root will not login. I know I'm typing the password correctly that I set while doing the chrooted install, but all I get are two lines.

One is a system halt warning for 23:58 today for whatever reason, and the other says:

"Please ignore underlying account module."

I then get puked back to the login prompt.

Any ideas? Currently I'm thinking I"ll just boot from the livecd again, save my kernel config and wipe everything and start again.

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Duplicate Threads in favour of the thread kimchi_sg linked above.
