Ok I am confused:

as per the manual on mounting I chose to do a reiserfs on my root (the first one was on ext3)

it seems that reiserfs find and locates /dev/hda3 (this is where root is)

it starts to mount proc
then fails on sysfs at /sys
message being
cant create lock file /etc/mtab~1188:Read-only file system (use -n flag to override)

it then successfully mounts devpts at /dev/pts...
then errors on devfsd
sbin/rc: line 271: /sbin/devfsd: No such file or directory

it then activates (possible swap)
then remounts root filesystem read-only (if nessecary)
it then checks root file system
Failed to open device '/dev/hda3' : No Such file or directory

* File system could not be fixed

give root password for maintenece
or Control D for normal startup

Kernel is 2.6.11-hardened-r1
fstab is correct

hda3 = reiserfs

grub has been checked root=/dev/hda3

Am I missing something? :?

P.S. Yes this is pentium4 2005.0 stage3 install

I enabled devfs in the kernel as usual. is that the problem?

I am now recompiling the kernel and taken out the devfs .

In a recent post I did mount back into my gentoo system and emerge baselayout and to no avail.

lets hope the kernel compile does the trick.

Please make sure that you did not put in devfs in your kernel. I took it out and it boots wondefully :) SOLVED!!!!!! :D


and savage does the happy dance of joy!

I had similar first boot too, but to a lesser extent, only the one line;

Code:
cant create lock file /etc/mtab~1188:Read-only file system (use -n flag to override)


The next reboot worked fine, turns out this is repeatable too...

Same problem here. Fixed by excluding "File systems >> Pseudo filesystems >> /dev file system support (OBSOLETE)" in the kernel menuconfig. This change from the 2004.3 profile is, however, reflected in the install manual for 2005.0.

I'm guessing the removal of that is intentional and devfs can be properly obsoleted. It looks like not quite prefect thou.
