1 Afternoon all,
3 Is there something special for me to set in the kernel config to enable it to
4 find the root partition? I copied the config from 5.4.38, ran oldconfig and
5 followed most of the suggested answers; but it won't boot.
7 # cat /boot/loader/entries/30-gentoo-5.7.1.conf
8 title Gentoo Linux 5.7.1
9 linux /vmlinuz-5.7.1-gentoo
10 options root=/dev/nvme0n1p4 initrd=/intel-uc.img net.ifnames=0
11 raid=noautodetect
13 That file hasn't changed, other than the kernel version.
15 On booting with that setup, I got an error immediately (from the UEFI BIOS, I
16 assume) complaining of an invalid parameter. A few seconds later the kernel
17 panicked because it couldn't find the root device.
19 So I chopped off everything after the 1p4 and booted again. No invalid-
20 parameter error this time, but still it couldn't find the boot device.
22 Something has changed, and I can't see what it is.
24 I've tried compiling the kernel (and @system) with gcc-9.3.0 and with
25 gcc-10.1.0, but I saw no difference.
