Thanks in advance .

Where does your kernel come from ? Which kernel is it ?
I mean, did you make menuconfig ?
In which case, did you pay enough attention to the framebuffer related entries ? What did you set ?
What video drivers do you wish to use ? (in-kernel / proprietary)
Well... tell us more. Much more!

I used genkernel.
The framebuffer enteries confused me so I didn't pay much attention to them because it was optional .
I am not sure waht kind of drivers to use yet but my video card is ati 6870 .

http://bpaste.net/show/279257 shows standard genkernel config.

boot the install media, mount the gentoo partitions, enter the chroot, nominally:
Code:
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/gentoo
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot
cp -L /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/
mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
mount --rbind /sys /mnt/gentoo/sys
mount --rbind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev
chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
source /etc/profile
export PS1="(chroot) $PS1"

Code:
emerge linux-firmware

Code:
genkernel --menuconfig all
edit menuconfig:

after editing, exit enough to times to see a dialog asking if you wish to save the configuration, select yes, allow compilation to complete.

http://bpaste.net/show/279258 does not have VIDEO_CARDS or INPUT_DEVICES

Code:
nano /etc/portage/make.conf
Edit to add: For the proprietary driver, fglrx
Quote:
VIDEO_CARDS="fglrx"
INPUT_DEVICES="evdev"

or for the open source driver, radeon:
Quote:
VIDEO_CARDS="radeon"
INPUT_DEVICES="evdev"


Code:
emerge -av twm xterm xclock xorg-server xorg-server
The list produced should include x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev and may have x11-drivers/ati-drivers (if you have selected the proprietary driver, fglrx)
If you have selected the proprietary driver run
Code:
aticonfig --initial

exit the chroot and reboot:
Code:
exit
cd
umount -l /mnt/gentoo/dev{/shm,/pts,}
umount -l /mnt/gentoo{/boot,/proc,}
reboot
when backup and logged in run startx to test the xorg-server. should see 3 white windows. Entering exit in the upper left window should close the xserver.

for some reason it says I have no space left on device so an error occurs when writing /boot/kernel-genkernel...
Should I have deleted some of the files ?

I am now trying to reinstall gentoo . Something weird I noticed is that the regular fourth partition is only 930 out of 1000. I am preety sure it is not meant to be like this though I deleted all the partitions

windows often benefits from reboots and reinstalls, linux not so much. Usually better to find and fix the problem.

new problem
Everything went smooth until the boot.
It is stuck at loading initial ramdisk

when I use the wgetpaste command it says the command not found and /sys/kernel/config no such file or directory ....
edit: of course it doesn't work , I used fdisk .What is the equivalent of "df -h" command ?

here is the url's (but the "df" still gives the error)
