Grub is giving me some problems on the initial boot. This is my grub.conf:
The error I get is:
Error 23: Error while parsing number
Everything appears to be correct so I'm sorta stuck here.
EDIT: haha, I never named the kernel as "kernel-2.6..." So that's fixed at least.
I cannot believe I missed this the other day. In your grub.conf the line that has your kernel in it should read:
kernel /kernel-2.6.14-gentoo-r5 root=/dev/sda3
also, make sure your kernel is named exactly the same, ie:
mv bzImage kernel-2.6.14-gentoo-r5
Your current grub line shows as
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.14-gentoo-r5 root=/dev/sda3
so when you boot, hit the e key in grub, and edit the grub line temporarily to remove the /boot part and then hit b to boot it. see if that works for you.
I was thinking about this earlier and was fairly sure that the caps in your fstab was it. Saw the later post and so re-read the thread and saw the grub line.
