I am going through the procedure of installin Gentoo
Linux on my hppa box, which is a 785/B2000 Visualize
I have gone through the instructions in order and am
now trying to run "genkernel all" since I haven't got
enough experience to decide about the options in
manual kernel configuration. Anyway, when I issue the
command "genkernel all" I get an error message
complaining about that a .config file is either not
specified or not found. It is obvious that I am
supposed to supply a .config file to genkernel. The
question is how I do that and/or what step in the
process I have omitted. Reviewing the guidelines I
have gone through doesn't tell me what step I missed.
BTW I am using a Universal CD to install from.
What I have done (referring to Gentoo handbook):
4. Preparing the disks (>16MB boot, 1500MB ext3 for
/var, 500MB for swap and remaining up to 9100MB ext3
as a fourth partition).
5. Installing the installation files
6. Installing the Gentoo Base system
The steps "Code Listing 7: Verifying system profile",
"Code Listing 8: Finding out if an additional profile
exists" and "Code Listing 9: Switching to a 2.4
profile" make me a bit unsuer, but my intention is to
stay with 2.6 which seems to be the default and
I have also run "emerge genkernel" without complaints
from the system.
Can anybody put me on track again? I would appreciate
Best regards and thanks in advance
