instead of wasting a bunch of space here i thought I would just post a link to my query http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?p=1...1578389#1578389

I just cannot figure out what's wrong, am I doing something wrong or is it a bug in the kernel or something? if it is a bug do you know what other information I will need to provide to submit a bug? Thanks, it's really getting on my nerves, I was so psyched to get it going and then it does not boot and I do not see anything wrong, very dissappointing. please help. nobody seems to know.

*edit: It looks like at least one other person is having what looks like a similar problem http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3352 I am going to try to figure out how to emerge like the 2.6.5 kernel or something and see if it works, if it does then it is a bug in the kernel.

*edit 2: I have been told the first link did not work, try this out http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=2...8015&highlight=

looks like it is something funky going on, many others have problems too http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=223355

I looked at all the posts ... can you boot from the Gentoo install CD (the SMP kernel is 2.6.7)?

Did you compile the kernel by hand or use genkernel? If you used genkernel, you different info in your kernel line, like this:

kernel /kernel-2.6.8-gentoo-r3 root=/dev/ram0 init=linuxrc real_root=/dev/sda2

If you compiled by hand, then if you can get the gentoo CD to work, make sure you can mount the drives and the partitions are correct...you can then use the chroot instructions in the install handbook ... and if you think this problem is specific to the 2.6.8 kernel, you can download the latest 2.6.7-r14 kernel and compile that one.

I did it manually. My buddy Rob is helping me out a lot here: http://jlug.bihlertech.com/viewtopic.php?t=193 still having problems but I imagine I will get it going soon (hopefully). I can boot from the gentoo install cd. I even tried the 2.6.5 kernel (it worked with fedora, so probably some little mistake that is causing me so much trouble). thanks though!
