Eihwaz,

Thats useful information - that tells that VESAFB was in use.

This time turm VESAFB back on and turn DRM_VMWGFX off.
That will hurt your 3D performance in Xorg later but it may well yet you going.

Build on what works - that way, when you break it making it better you can back out the change.
Your image suggested that the system did not like bath drivers loaded.

Read the kernel help for DRM_VMWGFX and Google it. It may tell how to have DRM_VMWGFX and a working console framebuffer. e.g.

This kernel patch suggests you need both DRM_VMWGFX and DRM_VMWGFX_FBCON. The latter will be hidden until DRM_VMWGFX is on.

This patch is already in your kernel - you just need to select both options.

I have put there some explain for make install vs cp kernel if you wish : https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-6364648.html#6364648
(and while you are at it, look at the first thread on that topic to grab linux sea, because linux sea is really an good doc for kernel and many basic linux handling)

Eihwaz,

Thats your next Gentoo learning experience :)
Your kernel paniced ... that means it locked up your system deliberately because it encountered an error that was so bad it could not continue.
It also left a nice error message saying what the problem is. The important part of the message is unknown-block(0,0)
This tells that the kernel cannot communicate with your hard drive at all. Its usually a missing driver in the kernel.

You have a choice of two interfaces
Code:
00:07.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 IDE (rev 01)
00:10.0 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 53c1030 PCI-X Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI (rev 01)

Your root filesystem can be attached to either - it depends how you configured VMWare player.

From your kernel config yesterday I pointed out
Code:
# CONFIG_FUSION is not set,   
hides the kernel option Fusion MPT ScsiHost drivers for SPI, which you need for your 00:10.0 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 53c1030 PCI-X Fusion-MPT Dual Ultra320 SCSI (rev 01). Your root filesystem may be there, depending on how you have set up VMWare.

If that doesn't help, post your kernel .config again.

And it's booting perfectly :).

My mistake, I enabled the CONFIG_FUSION options but did go in the options to enable the SPI drivers.

I'm ecstatic :D.

I learned A TON, thank you all for your tremendous help and your patience with a newbie like me. Particularly you NeddySeagoon and krinn too.

I'll get back to to my handbook and the next steps.
