If, after installing, you kernel hangs on boot but doesn’t actually panic, you might need to perform the following:
- Edit /etc/default/grub by adding this line:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=off nomodeset xforcevesa"
- Make sure boot partition is mounted: mount /dev/sda2 /boot in chroot or mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/gentoo/boot outside of chroot.
- grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Running eix-sync, you get:
fatal: destination path '.' already exists and is not an empty directory.
rm -rvf /usr/local/portage
