Hi all,

I've managed to install gentoo but now I can't start it. I reboot it, kboot prompt shows but with no options at all.
I've divided it into 3 partitions, boot, root and swap (ps3daX where X = 1,2,3 respectively).
In kboot.conf, in /etc/ of ps3da2, I setup kernel and initfsram to / of ps3da1, and real_root to /dev/ps3da2, rebooted and nothing happens.

I remembered that with lilo we needed to run it each time we updated lilo.conf, do we need to do the same thing with kboot?

Cheers,

Paulo Matos

Just needed to mark ps3da2 as bootable and with label "". Thanks ranger.
