Gentoox Or Xdsl Fully Native Install
Posted 16 October 2010 - 09:58 PM
I was wondering if there were any options for installing Gentoox or Xdsl fully native (comparable to Xebian). Meaning the distribution (either one is fine, although Xdsl would be preferable) would be installed to the entire Hard Drive.
Thanks in advance.

as of now, I have my motherboard TSOP'd and flashed with cromwell. What I'm really looking for is any specific commands in Gentoox or Xdsl to use the complete hard disk as a linux machine.

First, I'm using a terabyte hd and partitioning the swap and ext3 at the end of the drive instead of using the entire hard drive for gentoox. I'm able to partition correctly and make all of the directories but I'm unable to mount the rootfs; the kernel complains about it not being a directory. Would this have something to do with the partitioning scheme?

no initrd from config file Bootconfig: Kernel /boot/vmlinuz
Bootconfig: Kerel commandline:
init=/linuxrc root=/dev/hda2 kbd-reset video=xbox:640x480,nohwcursor,hoc=13,voc=13 don'tdeleteme
I'm assuming that its missing the kernel to boot from. I suppose I should probably start with a fresh install of everything just to be sure, but suggestions would be helpful.
