Possibly, but that's unlikely to make this problem go away since it
appears to come from a device naming conflict. This is inherent in the
hardware setup. I've inquired elsewhere regarding moving this matter to
some other list where the participants are more versed in Linux kernel
and system issues. This list seems to have been a poor choice for this
thread, since kernel issues aren't the specialty of the participants,
although several people have been helpful.
The problem should be soluble without reloading the OS. I've made some
progress. If I can solve the dev name conflict issue and get my RAID
arrays reconstituted, then I can deal with the video card issues and I'm
home free :-) I'm sure the naming conflict issue has come up before,
for other people, and someone, somewhere has a solution for it.
Ultimately the path forward will be to build a new desktop box, which
probably won't be running Gentoo. It'll have a much more sane disk
configuration, and won't be subject to other legacy hardware issues
(which I haven't discussed here) than this one is. I'd like to make one
more push with this box, though, to get the immediate problem resolved.
