    Re: Selecting USE flags

    Can Someone help me here...?

    I have been trying to do a chrooted install of gentoo from Arch Linux... Now I am no linux geek, and I have come this far only by standing on the shoulders of giants... all over the WWW!

    But I am stuck at the same situation as the OP in the modprobe -l command stage...

    What exactly does that command mean...?

    Also this is my partition table...

    Number Start End Size Type File system Flags
    1 32.3kB 65.8MB 65.8MB primary ext2 boot
    2 65.8MB 20.5GB 20.5GB primary ext3 arch root
    3 20.5GB 46.1GB 25.6GB primary ext3 gentoo root
    4 46.1GB 160GB 114GB extended
    5 46.1GB 48.2GB 2048MB logical linux-swap
    6 48.2GB 160GB 112GB logical ext3 arch home

    The current GRUB menu is on /dev/sda1, my boot partition. How do I modify the GRUB that gentoo is going to produce, so that I can successfully dual boot...?

    Help please..! I am really excited - never thought such things like Virtualization and chrooted installs were true, until I came to see them in action..!
    Distros/DEs - playing around with Arch-Kdemod,
    Slackware 12.2, Gentoo-e17, Arch-e17 and of course, Ubuntu 8.10...! But still JUST A BEGINNER please..!

    It lists all the modules that are currently loaded and, as was said earlier, cannot be used in a chroot.

    You have two approaches to choose from:

    1. Install a second GRUB on the boot sector of Gentoo's root partition, and chainload it from Arch's GRUb

    2. Do not reinstall GRUB at all, and modify the menu of your existing GRUB so you can use it to boot both distros.

    I think you should go with 1., it might be a bit more complicated to install, but it will be easier to manage afterwards.

    Re: Selecting USE flags

    find /lib/modules/2.6.27-gentoo-r7/ -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*.ko'
    These were the results of the above command. I don't know whether that is the rught command.

    /lib/modules/2.6.27-gentoo-r7/kernel/arch/x86/kernel/test_nx.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.27-gentoo-r7/kernel/drivers/scsi/scsi_wait_scan.ko
    How can I choose my modules from this...?

    They seem to be ko files, and i don't know what these are.

    Follow the Gentoo handbook http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...?part=1&chap=7 and you'll see you need to edit the kernel-2.6 and add the modules you want
    nano -w /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
