Hello, I installed funtoo according to the guide but I decided to custom compile the kernel and I used the gentoo-sources and boot-update is complaining about a missing bzImage. I have vmlinux and no initrd, I'm using UEFI booting and I do get the b/w screen. What should I do?

Probably reading `man boot.conf` and considering the examples there will resolve the problem for you.  You will need to edit /etc/boot.conf to describe your setup for boot-update.  Especially notice that the line in the kernel entry that names the kernel, e.g.

    kernel vmlinuz[-v]

must correspond to your own kernel naming convention.  If the kernel[s] in /boot/ have names like bzImage-3.9-gentoo then the line must be

    kernel bzImage[-v]

but if they are named like kernel-3.9-gentoo then the line must be

    kernel kernel[-v]

Here is the cotents of /boot

EFI
System.map-3.18.11-gentoo1
config-3.18.11-gentoo1
grub
vmlinuz-3.18.11-gentoo1

 

And this is /etc/boot.conf

boot {
	generate grub
	default "Funtoo Linux" 
	timeout 3 
}

"Funtoo Linux" {
	kernel vmlinux[-v]
}

I'm really not seeing my error.

what does ls /boot say?

 

try ln -s /boot/(debian-sources or whatever kernel you're using) /boot/bzImage

 

boot-update


Duke: No more of that talk or I'll put the f*cking leeches on you, understand?

 

Paul: [about Percy] The man is mean and careless and stupid, and that's a bad combination in a place like this.
