11 Mark, I rm'ed all of it and created a new vm again. did all the
12 steps with /dev and the rest of normal install.
14 This time around the vm cannot find any media to boot from although I
15 created boot and all that with grub etc.
17 I even added the `init 1' line you suggested... but since the media is
18 not found when I try to boot into the vm... of course it does nothing.
20 So, enough time wasted.. I'm sorry to cave on you when you asked for a
21 result of the init 1 parameter....
23 I don't have any idea where to look for the problem of not finding the
24 media but probably some kind of pilot error.
26 I need to get some work done with a vm so going with debian.
28 Its working now... tarsnap server is ready to be setup for tarsnap.
29 Done it about 1/2 hour.
31 I really appreciate your kind patience.. and have kept the thread for
32 next time I get the urge to create a gentoo vm. Very good input and
33 it does not go to waste since I seem to end up trying a gentoo vm
34 guest every few mnths.
36 Thanks to Neil as well. Always appreciate the sharp eyed comments.
