It says my cpu family is 6, model, 26, and model name: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07H(I added the march because I read on the document)GHz
But when I went to: http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Safe_CFLAGS, there is none with model 26?


In that case you must use model 15

Logic:
15 < 26 < 42

Code:
CHOST="x86_64-pc-linux-gnu"
CFLAGS="-march=core2 -O2 -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"


Re: Deleting, it doesn't matter as they are defaults.

Thanks. also, doesn't x86 mean 32 bit?

So I must delete those?

No, but those are just useless
and I think it should be
-march=corei7

EDIT:
Damn, he did it again :D


Idk who to trust D:
corei7 or core2
I think i7 seems more reasonable as the cpu is i7 and doesn't have 2 cores....

Yes, but that's more history: x86 - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For Intel Core i7 CPU users or those having econf error during install (with the current 2012.1 release of Gentoo which ships with GCC 4.5.3 compiler) it is recommended to begin your install with the -march=core2 flag to generate a base install against GCC 4.5.3, then later you can upgrade GCC to 4.6.3 or newer in order to support the new -march=corei7 flag.

Hmm - is this still true?

@gogobebe: you would only use corei7 if your cpuid were between 42 and 60 but since your id is 26, I am correct. If you overclock your compiler, you'll have all sorts of wierd issues

I accidentally reported you. Sorry. I was trying to reply back: thanks

edit: I just deleted my report post in that report thread lol.
also, is it debian that is fixing up my spelling mistakes with the red squiggly lines or is it the forums? Because I don't think it does this in windows.

It's ICEWeasel that is correcting your mistakes. In Linux, spellchecking is default in most desktop applications because of the package named aspell IIRC.

Ok I am using Genkernel. Even though pappy is better. Because genkernel is apparently easier...

PostPosted: Sat Oct 19, 2013 11:39 pm    Post subject: I got gentoo working. Reply with quote

I rebooted linux and came to a purple interface after selecting the only one that was there I get an error:

It says
GNU GRUB version 0.97 (639K lower / 2096064K upper memory)
at the top

and then a small menu with:

Gentoo Linux 3.10.7-r1

under the menu:

Use the {up} and {down} keys to select which entry is highlighted.
Press enter to boot the selected OS, 'e' to edit the commands before booting, or 'c' for a command-line.

I push enter and...

Code:
    Booting 'Gentoo Linux 3.10.7-r1'
root (hd0, 0)
 Filesystem type ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-3.10.7-gentoo-r1 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc
 ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/sda3

Error 15: File not found

Press any key to continue...


Any ideas? I think it has something to do with the GRUB I did stuff with right at the end: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-amd64.xml?part=1&chap=10[/code]

gogobebe2,

Code:
Error 15: File not found
means that the files listed in grub.conf do not match exactly, the file names in your /boot.

This line
Code:
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-3.10.7-gentoo-r1 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc
 ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/sda3
is not correct but it would nat give Error 15.
Code:
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-3.10.7-gentoo-r1 root=/dev/sda3
is better.

Check the file names in the splashimage line and the initrd line too.

-- edit --

Grub has tab completion in the edit menu
in the kernel /boot/... line, make it read kernel /boot/k then press the tab key.
Do the same again for for the initrd line.

That you goy the purple grub menu with one item on it says the splashimage line is OK.

I think I did what you said.
changed the line, pressed tab and it said:
Code:
Error 11: Unrecognized device string

then I went to initrd and pressed tab (didn't change the line at all) and it said:
Code:
Error 15: File not found

Not all - just run the Live cd and:
Code:
mount /dev/sdXX /mnt/gentoo
mount /dev/sdYY /mnt/gentoo/boot
ls /mnt/gentoo/boot
less /mnt/gentoo/grub/grub.conf

where sdXX is your root partition, and sdYY your /boot partition (so probably something like /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 - run lsblk if you're not sure)
