I know, I know, I know. There are like 20 differents posts in the Forums and Google.
However, NONE of the answers work for me. I don't know much about hardware but
honestly, I just can't make my new Gentoo install boot right.
After 2 days tryin different compilings, info for OldWorld powerbooks, etc, only today morning
I could go through all the processes listed in the Handbook and finished -I suppossed- the
BUT, when using BootX, and booting into Gentoo...
VFS: Cannot open root device "hda10" or unknown block (o,o) Please append a correct "root"
boot option .
Kernel Panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs.
My fstab is
/dev/hda10 / ext3 noatime 0 1
/dev/hda9 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda11 /home ext3 defaults 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
I remember I followed ALL as directed in the Handbook (except for the a couple of OldWorld
stuff I had to adapt for myself but nothing regarding kernel or configs)
Could you please give an Idea?
I had a similar problem when I tried to use a precompiled 2.6.x kernel from Ben when I used
Debian (no problems at all with 2.4.18), so I thought that if I will end up compiling why not
using Gentoo instead? :( Now, I am about going back to Debian, but after spending so
much time in a Gentoo ppc oldwolrd box... I would feel even more frustrated.
