Subject: [gentoo-user] kernel .config that works for gentoo as guest vm
Date: Sun, 04 Dec 2011 16:37:34
1 Installing fresh gentoo in guest vm on win7
3 Before I even try to configure a kernel, because I've been down this
4 road a few times, and so far have always had trouble getting a kernel
5 config that boots first time on gentoo vm.
7 The vm is a gentoo guest installed with Vbox on windows 7.
9 Its been a while since I've done this but I recall having trouble
10 getting the right drivers so that disks are properly discovered during
11 boot.
13 I think this kind of config is pretty generic but still manage to get
14 it wrong repeatedly.
16 Can anyone post a kernel .config that is known to boot a gentoo Vbox
17 vm installed on windows 7. Or is there a generic config that will do
18 that? I've tried genkernel in the past too, and still no boot on a vm.
20 I guess it would be kernel-3.1.4.
