16 After booting from gentoo minimal livecd, chrooting into my hard
17 drive, re-emerging grub:0 (just in case it has to be built against my
18 latest kernel) and then running grub and doing:
20 root (hd0,0)
21 setup (hd0)
23 it booted normally again. I guess I failed to reinstall grub like this
24 after a portage update at some point... logs show I last instlaled it
25 in May, and have rebooted since then without problem, maybe it was
26 something else. Weird. :)
