Subject: [gentoo-user] cannot boot using systemd and initrd
Date: Mon, 20 Jan 2014 12:39:16
1 Hi. I am having a problem booting using systemd and an initrd generated
2 by genkernel.
4 I get the message that says (may be slight paraphrase) that
5 /dev/mapper/linux--files-64--root does not appear to be a valid /, try
6 again.
8 Now in the gentoo guide to systemd, I did what I think it wanted me to
9 do and wrote in my lilo append line real_init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd
10 . Now looking at the linuxsrc in the initrd, /usr is not even mounted
11 when it is looking for its init -- after all that fuss about /usr -- and
12 it only seems to look in /sbin for its init and dies.
14 How can I solve this problem -- I suppose I could copy systemd over, but
15 that seems nasty to me and I would have to remember to update it every
16 time systemd was updated!
18 Any assistance on this would be appreciated.

22 How do
23 you spend it?
