I've always had better results with Lilo and never bothered with grub much. I'm sure you'll get it to work with grub eventually, though.
Nice rock, paper, scissors, lizard, spock there :D.

Moderators, perhaps you could split the part where partitioning is explained, since I think it might be useful for other people as well and put the rest into a separate thread called "gogobebe2's gentoo install" or something?

gogobebe2,

Your /boot says
Code:
livecd ~ # ls /mnt/gentoo/boot
System.map-genkernel-x86_64-3.10.7-gentoo-r1   initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-3.10.7-gentoo-r1
boot                                                                   kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.10.7-gentoo-r1
grub                                                                   lost+found
livecd ~ # less /mnt/gentoo/grub/grub.conf
so your kernel is
Code:
kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.10.7-gentoo-r1

and your initrd is
Code:
initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-3.10.7-gentoo-r1
You must use those names exactly.

Hint: I don't see _64 in your grub.conf filenames. There may be other things too.

--- edit ---
The livecd provides gpm, which is the console mouse.
Hilight text to put it into the copy buffer.
Middle click to paste.

I've installed GENTOO!!!!!
I am trying to get a desktop. I've found: GNOME, Fluxbox, Xfce, Openbox, LXDE, Xorg and that's about all I've found. What do you recommend on how I should go about this?

Why not try them all? I'd recommend taking a snapshot in virtualbox of your fresh install.

see my edit.
Happy Birthday. 8)

EDIT: actually on second thought, you might want to install debian in a second vm and try them out on that. They'll be broadly the same and it won't take half a day of waiting for them to compile.

Happy birthday!

And about trying out new things:
Since you're using VMs, it's best to have a backup of a really good "bare" VM for any distro.

For Gentoo, for example, just get one to what you consider to be minimal and leave it there. Or, when you get a major step working, just shut the thing down, power off the VM and then zip the files so you have an exact backup when it's in its quiescent state.

This way, when you mess something up you can revert to the last "good spot" very easily. Also, when you have an idea and want to try it on a VM, you can clone your existing setup very easily, and rather than hours or days to get where you are you only spend a few minutes.

Desktop environments don't always clean up well when you remove them. I call it "littering" where they have configuration files laying around. The problem is, many of the files are common to more than one desktop and so you get six copies of the same thing.

You have some options:

  1. Make a new user account for each desktop
  2. Make a VM for each desktop
  3. Try them all on the same account on the same box, and when you get an idea what you like start with a fresh VM and build just the desktop you want.

I made a new snapshot called Snapshot 1. So I can revert to it later can't I?
