Pappy:

That network controller is not my wireless; it is my gigabit ethernet. I have no ethernet. I haven't even started to look into the wifi yet.

Ain't no thang! I wouldn't presume on your time, anyway. I just appreciate what you do.

I followed your instructions and I'm wondering if I missed something, because I got a kernel panic. Was I supposed to change my fstab before rebooting, and if so, how? I'm not sure because I have an hda1, and I can't simply change it to sda1, which already exists.

As soon as I booted back up with my backup kernel (I always keep a /boot/kern.old and have grub configured to use it as the second boot choice, just in case), I piped dmesg into a file and put it here: http://audiodef.com/dmesg.out

Let me know where I goofed, dumbass that I am. :P

Ok, it looks like the problem was that you didn't turn on the via82xx support under ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL. Since your /etc/fstab expects /dev/hda1 and /dev/hdc1. Using the VIA settings under the SATA drivers will make /dev/hda1 /dev/sda1, and so on. That will cause a panic.

If this .config works, you should be able to switch to all SATA drivers (VIA SATA & PATA SUPPORT), and change the hd(x) to sd(x) in /etc/fstab and be done with it. For the moment, though, just make sure things work with this .config.

Click here for your new .config. Compile as is.

For the best results, please do the following:
1) Move your .config file out of your kernel source directory (/usr/src/linux-2.6.30-gentoo-r3 ).
2) Issue the command make mrproper. This is a destructive step. It returns the source to pristine condition. Unmoved .config files will be deleted!
3) Copy my .config into your source directory.
4) Issue the command make && make modules_install.
5) Install the kernel as you normally would, and reboot.
6) Once it boots, please post /var/log/dmesg so I can see how things loaded.

As I said, if you can get this to boot, you should be able to switch to all SATA drivers. Let me know how it works out...and once again, apologies for the time it took to do this.

Blessed be!
Pappy

Same holds for most network drivers. The only time I directly install one in the driver is if the module doesn't work. Post /var/log/dmesg so I can see what's going on.

Blessed be!

audiodef,

Can you get a photo of the panic? That way I'll know what angle to attack this from.

Blessed be!
Pappy

Code:
udev: deprecated sysfs layout; update the kernel or disable CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED; some udev features will not work correctly

You should first uncheck CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED in your kernel config. As stated, udev provides (network-related, I think) features that require that option to be disabled.

OK, thanks, VinzC. I will try that. Stupid genkernel! That's the way it came out of the box; I never changed that. Why do they ship it with a broken outdated default config? :evil:

It's not broken, it's just selected by default, hence I never use genkernel for my kernels but compile them manually ;) .

I normally also compile my kernels manually, but manually constructing an initrd, or initramfs as they are now calling it, is such a pain, and the initrd that I had been using no longer works with more recent builds. Since I always use LVM for the root filesystem so I can use the snapshot capability for my nightly backups run by my backup server, I need an initrd to boot a box with the root filesystem under LVM. Everybody was saying how much easier it was to use genkernel to build the initrd, so I tried it. It has worked well on several other systems so far, but this one needed the firmware thingy for the ethernet. BTW I do use genkernel --menuconfig --no-clean --dmraid --lvm all so I can still tweak the kernel config. 8)

Do you know genkernel argument initrd or initramfs? You don't have to compile a kernel to have an initrd. This is how I created an initial ramdisk for multipath. You can skip kernel compilation and generate an initial ramdisk only. Use the same arguments (i.e. --lvm, --dmraid et al.) and you're done. It's initrd or initramfs according to the version -- I think recent version use initramfs.

EDIT: There are also options to genkernel to include firmware files as well. Plus recent kernels (starting with 2.6.29, IIRC) do provide direct inclusion for firmware files.

I think I can. I'll post it as soon as I get a chance.

Can you get a photo of the panic? That way I'll know what angle to attack this from.

Blessed be!

VinzC:

This is my first foray into genkernel. I have always built up my initrd images manually before, hand constructing the linuxrc script, building my own nash, determining which library modules to include in the initrd, etc. Its a pain I can do without. I initially had trouble getting genkernel to generate the initrd for a kernel I built manually, so I just let genkernel do the whole job for me. Mind you, I did tell it to run menuconfig so I could tailor it. How is this different from manually running menuconfig then doing the make && make modules_install then copying the bzimage manually to /boot?

This is my first foray into genkernel. I have always built up my initrd images manually before, hand constructing the linuxrc script, building my own nash, determining which library modules to include in the initrd, etc. Its a pain I can do without.

Well, I just wanted to be sure you noticed genkernel can not only build (and install) a kernel and its initrd but also just create an initrd and leave your kernel alone so that you still control everything as before. There are plenty of arguments to genkernel, including a custom linuxrc for instance. I've already seen genkernel maintainers apply suggested patches rather quickly so all you're doing painfully by hand may get a change to be automated and scripted by genkernel. That's all I wanted to explain.

I personally have written a script to a) run the menu, compile and install a kernel and its modules, b) reuse an existing config and run make oldconfig if needed, c) move linux symbolic link to the source I select. It's like a custom genkernel but shorter ;) .

Can you get a photo of the panic? That way I'll know what angle to attack this from.

It looks to me as if the drive nomenclature has changed. That shouldn't happen, but since it is, all you need to do is change /etc/fstab to be the following:

/dev/sdc1 /boot ext2 noauto,noatime 1 2
/dev/sdc3 / ext3 noatime 0 1
/dev/sda1 /20gbdrive ext3 noatime 0 1
/dev/sdc2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /41gbdrive ext3 noatime 0 1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,user 0 0

Note, this may require further fiddling. I'm just assuming the drive order considering how things have changed and what showed up in the photo. You will also need to change /boot/grub.conf to point to a different root (sdc3).

If that fixes things, I'll have to go through the .config and see what I did wrong. If you don't mine renaming your drives, then there should be no problem.

Blessed be!
Pappy

That did the trick. Thanks! :D

I wonder how/why the drive nomenclature changed. If you figure it out, let me know, because I'm curious about it. I'm happy to leave it as it is now, though, unless you recommend something better. Like your sig says, whatever works is right.

audiodef,

When you have the old IDE driver looking after PATA devices and he libata driver looking after your SATA drives, the IDE drives are detected first, then the SATA drives, so you havd /dev/hda and /dev/sda, for example.

When you switch the PATA devices to libata, the some detection order is used. Along with the hda renaming this results in /dev/hda becoming /dev/sda and the old /dev/sda becoming /dev/sdb because the name /dev/sda is already allocated.

The way round this is to use filesystem labels, which are not supported by all filesystems of UUIDs, which need patches to grub and the kernel on Gentoo.
UUIDs are preferred.

Thanks for the info, Neddy. I'm not familiar with filesystem labels. Since the system I have is a simple one and all my drives except /boot are mounted at boot, should I do anything with filesystem labels? If it's nothing to worry about, then I'm curious to know how it would work, just because I'm that much of a geek.

Neddy, That seems logical since I just rechecked, and the VIA HDD driver was set in ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL.

Audiodef, I'm wondering whether it might behoove you to add support for VIA PATA and VIA SATA under the SATA drivers, and turn off the ATA...driver. That way, there is no way a race condition could exist that would somehow change the nomenclature back. Since the cat is out of the bag, nomenclature-wise, just finish it off so it stays that way.

Blessed be!
Pappy

audiodef,

If your filesystems support lables, you can use the syntax
Code:
root=LABLE=<label of rootfs>
in grub.conf and
Code:
LABEL=<fslable>
in /etc/fstab

The kernel then matches lables to find things, not device names so if things move around, it JustWorks still.
UUIDs are similar but they need patches in Gentoo

Sorry if I'm a dumbass, but by that, do you mean to go ahead and add VIA PATA/SATA, or just leave it as I have it now with the nomenclature change?

Cool, thanks. I'm going to read up on that some more. The system I've been talking about here is ext3, which I would think supports labels, right?

audiodef,

Yes ext3 supports labels. All the ext varients do.

Read man tune2fs to see how to set a label and man mount to see how to use it

I think I'll do just that. Thanks again. 8)

Regarding labels, I am bringing up 2 systems, each with a 5-bay hot swap sata backplane. The idea is to use 3 drives for a raid, 1 to boot from, and 1 as a scratch/temp/work drive slot. All drives will have the ability to support lvm and crypto. I have wanted to look into labels so I would not have to be careful about slot renaming due to random pulling and insertion order. I could always use /dev/disk/by-path/* to identify a particular slot in the backplane, but labels seem so much cleaner. Obviously, I still have to worry about which slot before I pull a drive out, but the computer can tell me which slot to pull after it has made the drive quiescent. I am running mostly xfs, but some ext2/3 and some old reiserfs (not 4). Do all these formats support labels?

Thanks! :D
