Subject: [gentoo-user] /dev/sda* missing at boot
Date: Thu, 18 Aug 2011 19:00:04
1 Hi, guys
3 It is a shame, I know, but after several years using Gentoo, it is the
4 first time I try to build a kernel without "genkernel".
6 And now I can't boot to that new kernel, it does not find (and really do
7 not have a) /dev/sda* root partition ("real-root"); during the boot it
8 stops, complaining about that, gives me the option to get a shell, from
9 which I am able to see that there is no /dev/sda* .
11 I have included everything SATA, so it looks like that is not a kernel
12 problem, but a initramfs issue, I guess.
14 What am I missing?
16 Thanks a lot

19 PS: my boot partition is sda2, sda3 is a swap partition, and everything
20 else is in sda4. sda1 is not used (up to now) and this is my grub.conf :
