1 Ok, I've managed to build everything, and after a lot of work, to
2 compile a kernel which actually boots :) Here are some other problems I
3 ran into while I was installing:
5 - /usr/portage/sys-apps/file/file-3.33-r3.ebuild has a typo (the
6 filename should end in .tar.gz, not
8 - the default kernel config doesn't compile in support for ext2fs or for
9 IDE drives (it compiles them as modules instead). This causes a
10 kernel panic when booting if / is on an IDE drive. It says to make
11 sure to turn on ext2 support in the install docs, but it didn't say
12 anything about IDE/ATA support (I assumed it would be compiled in by
13 default).
15 - I had to remove the `notail' option for my root partition from
16 /etc/fstab; ext3fs doesn't seem to like that option and gets mounted
17 read-only if you use it.
