I have just finished a new install of the latest gentoo i686 on an intel atom z530 processor. On boot, I get the following message

fsck.ext4 no such file or directory on /dev/sda7

I can't actually find the entry in /var/log/messages, kern.log or /var/log/syslog for some reason, which seems odd.

/dev/sda7 is the root directory. Somehow, later on it must manage to mount /dev/sda7 because it continues to boot and df shows the partition mounted. I get the same message during boot for /dev/sda6, which contains /var but /dev/sda6 is not mounted. I can mount these manually without any problems after booting has completed.

fstab
/dev/sda7 / ext4 noatime 0 1
/dev/sda6 /var ext4 noatime 0 1

I regenerated my initramfs using genkernel and tried adding the argument rootfstype=ext4 to the 'linux' argument in /boot/grub2/grub.cfg under the main menuentry (suggested solutions found on various forums) but none of these seem to have solved it. Can someone provide an idea of what to try next?

Hi greanie,
Does the output of dmesg give you any insight?

cheers

Code:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# noatime turns off atimes for increased performance (atimes normally aren't
# needed); notail increases performance of ReiserFS (at the expense of storage
# efficiency).  It's safe to drop the noatime options if you want and to
# switch between notail / tail freely.
#
# The root filesystem should have a pass number of either 0 or 1.
# All other filesystems should have a pass number of 0 or greater than 1.


Your fstab has pass 1 for both / (root) and /var
