Subject says it all. I haven't any doubt that it is probably something I am doing or not doing but I can't run any kernel after linux-3.17.8-gentoo-r1.

I am trying to run linux-3.18.9-gentoo and had the same problem with 3.18.7. https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1011860-highlight-.html

I am pretty sure that I am getting all of the config selections from my working kernel in the newer ones but they always fail someplace in the init process. I am not sure how to troubleshoot it. It just hangs forcing me to do a hard reboot.

Now I can get as far as entering the password for my LUKS/LVM volume but after that it just stalls out.

HELP...Pleasssszzzze.

did you use make oldconfig ?
have you used diff or meld to compare 17.8 .config to 18.9 .config ?

pls run
Code:
emerge -s openrc baselayout2 | wgetpaste
and post the url returned

Thanks. Sorry for the type-o's.

I use genkernel to compile my kernels but I did use the oldconfig option.

I've also tried diffing the old config with the new and adding all the options active to the new.

$ diff /usr/src/linux-3.17.8-gentoo-r1/.config /usr/src/linux-3.18.9-gentoo/.config |wgetpaste

Suggest emerging baselayout2 unless there is a reason you don't have it.

if enabling fhandle does not fix the problem, I would guess that graphics configuration may be the problem. It appears that your machine is a laptop with hybrid graphics (intel and radeon) ? Does disk activity continue after the screen hangs? Will ctrl-alt-delete cause a reboot after screen hang or is hard shutdown required? Attempt to boot the 3.18.9 kernel, after the hang, allow a minute or 2 to pass, enter shutdown -h now, if that fails hard shutown. boot a livecd/dvd/usb, mount the gentoo partitions, wgetpaste /var/log/dmesg. This should provide the dmesg for the failed boot.

Thank you. This seemed to resolve the issue but I am not sure why or how. I guess I have some homework to do.

What is interesting though is previously it was bombing on

so wouldn't have even known to look at udev.

It is not something I would have been aware of so its absence was not a conscious decision on my part. However I don't see it in portage.

Code:
$ eix baselayout

     Available versions:  2.2 {build KERNEL="linux"}
     Installed versions:  2.2(11:26:35 AM 04/27/2013)(-build KERNEL="linux")

     Description:         Filesystem baselayout and init scripts

[I] sys-apps/baselayout-java
     Available versions:  0.1.0
     Installed versions:  0.1.0(02:50:48 AM 04/27/2014)
     Homepage:            http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/java/
     Description:         Baselayout for Java

     Available versions:  ~*1.12.5-r11 ~*1.12.14 ~*1.12.14-r1 ~*2.2-r3 ~*2.2-r4 {build prefix-chaining KERNEL="linux"}

or is "2" the version number for baselayout?

Actually, aside from the now resolved boot issue...this is something I have been struggling with and have all but given up on.

I am on a hybrid laptop but can't take advantage of the Radeon capapbility becuase of something to do with it being a muxless system. I won't pretend to understand it but I guess linux doesn't have that capability yet.

The Muxless part is a bit scary. It may mean that meanwhile, you can only use the low power chip. The problem is that both graphics chips can draw into the pixel buffer but only one can read the pixel buffer to the screen to generate the image. Work is in hand to make this work but its not complete. Xorg cannot stet up your system in this split manner. When you use the low power graphics, it will work, when you use the high power grahics you will get a black screen. This isn't a Gentoo thing, its the state of software development in GNU/Linux.
