    After you have made any changes you want to your kernel configuration, select Exit, and then choose Yes to save it. At this point, genkernel makes your new kernel. This takes a while. After genkernel is complete, note the names of the kernel and boot loader. (Type ls /boot to see the names.) 25. Add coldplug. Type the following to enable coldplug (so hardware outside of that which is detected during initialization is detected and configured automatically):

    # emerge coldplug
    # rc-update add coldplug boot

    26. Configure system services. Install your system services - system logger, cron service, hotplug, and reiserfs service - and set the domain name. Then turn on each of those services, as follows:

    # emerge syslog-ng
    # rc-update add syslog-ng default
    # emerge vixie-cron
    # rc-update add vixie-cron default
    # emerge hotplug
    # rc-update add hotplug default
    # emerge reiserfsprogs

    27. Add special driver support. There may be particular kernel modules required by your computer at this point. For example, if you have a special Ethernet adapter or a special type of video card, use the emerge command to install kernel modules now. You may not need any of them. Here are a few examples:

    # emerge nvidia-kernel
    # emerge nforce-audio
    # emerge e1000
    # emerge ati-drivers

    These emerge command lines are used only if you have special hardware associated with the kernel drivers. Respectively, those commands load drivers for accelerated NVidia video cards, audio for Nvidia NForce motherboards, fIntel e1000 Gigabit Ethernet cards, and ATI Radeon+/FireGL graphics acceleration video cards.
