yet finished an installation of 2005.1/stage3 for my athlon xp but while booting program given this error message :(

root is on /dev/hda4 and it formed with reiserfs filesystem and i'm a very new gentoo/linux user :)

Code:
Checking root filesystem ...
ext2fs_check_if_mount: No such file or directory while determining whether /dev/ROOT is mounted
fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/ROOT

/dev/ROOT:
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem, then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:

e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

*Filesystem couldn't be fixed :(


at first i entered my root password and
Code:
fsck.reiserfs --check /dev/hda4
to determine whether an error occured in my filesystem bu it is OK. after, i tried
Code:
fsck.reiserfs --rebuild-sb /dev/hda4
to fix if superblock is corrupted but it returns "Superblock seems to be correct" message.

i think that it don't know that my root filesystem is reiserfs, checking it for ext2 and ext3 returns no result. am i right? and if i, how can i tell the bootprocess to seek my root filesystem as reiserfs.

thanks for all :)

actually, you forgot to edit your /etc/fstab, make the /dev/ROOT in there read your root-partition's device file and change the fs type to the proper one there (i.e. to reiserfs)

I had this same error after imaging my hard drive to a different drive. I forgot to edit the fstab file and fixing it solved my problem.
