[ale] gentoo error



Stephen -

Perhaps you should have stuck with static IP, even if all you do is cop 
the one that DHCP would give.  I recall from the Gentoo install-a-thon I 
tried last week that you are told  to edit /etc/resolv.conf.   Perhaps 
that's a step you can't skip even if you plan to do DHCP later.  

Also, IIRC, there's a step in which you have to copy the resolv.conf 
from your chrooted installation environment to the "real" /etc - did you 
do that?

As for me, I got pretty far with Gentoo only to have it totally flatline 
on me with respect to starting X.  That's after having the box build KDE 
and related apps all night long and part of the next morning.  By that 
time, I'd had enough!  I'll come back to Gentoo later!
