Subject: [gentoo-dev] first rc4 pre2 installation guide problem

1 Ok, thanks to the new guide that's up, i now know the proper options for
2 my /boot partition. However, there seems to be some sort of problem going
3 on with the directions in the guide, specifically with the configuring the
4 settings section. Right after it says to do a 'chroot /mnt/gentoo' you're
5 to perform the 'env-update' command. When running 'env-update' i get a
6 "Error: /mnt/gentoo does not exist!" or some such error. This of course makes
7 sense, since that dir is now the root directory, however something tells
8 me that this *isn't* the way the command is supposed to work (i think).
9 Is it supposed to do this? And of course, exiting out of the chroot'ed
10 shell to run 'env-update' doesn't work b/c then it can't even find the
11 command. I've also looked at the python code for env-update in
12 /usr/sbin/env-update, however i haven't been able to come up with a
13 solution to this problem. Any ideas?
16 thanks,
19 dave
