Gentoo installation fails in Virtualbox [solved]

Postby base0 » 27 Sep 2015, 14:29

Using the latest version of all these softwares in question, I have no luck installing Gentoo x64 in Virtualbox on a Windows host while following the directions for alternate CD (i.e., the SystemRescueCD) instead of using Gentoo's minimalCD ISO. Everything appears to proceed fine until the final point of building the kernel with genkernel. I am using all the directions explicitly without any customized settings in the makefile, etc. Nonetheless, the kernel fails to build. Any ideas? Thanks.

Okay, my bad. I worked this out and got Gentoo installed properly. I believe it was failing because I had allowed for too small of a hard disk during installation of the system.
