I gather that Gentoo systems aren’t very popular here, but as I use them in production at work and rather like them I thought I’d replace my legacy Debian VM with one. However, I’m blocked by the fact that /dev/vda seems to be inaccessible within the chroot during installation. This means that GRUB can’t be installed.
There’s a thread here on the Gentoo forums relating to this problem:
Does anyone have any suggestions (other than “use another distro” ;-)?
