I love my Gentoo, I really do. This time I have no one but myself for breaking it. Unsure of how to recompile my kernel the “Gentoo way” I tried the follow the guide. Somewhere in the process I overwrote my only working kernel and now my Gentoo install will not boot at all.
The only good thing that has come out of this is I’ve finally got around to re-installing Kubuntu so I’m now officially dual-booting. I really like it. I don’t really know what the point of it is, but it makes me feel good :-). I’m currently in the process of compiling a new kernel for my Gentoo install. Instead of using the Gentoo sources, I’m just using a “vanilla” kernel from http://www.kernel.org. Excellent webpage. Well, just to show you how newbie-ish Kubuntu is, in order to get as far as I’ve gotten without trouble, I’ve had to go through several install through Apt. Not huge install, but the kind of stuff I consider basic for Linux users like the gcc compiler, make, etc. I’m on my way though. I’m currently getting help on TuxForums.org, which has been great so far.
While I fix my system, Enjoy the Penguins!
