I have been working through the instructions at gentoo-wiki.com for building my own Live CD. This has been pretty easy and straightforward for the most part. Unfortunately, now that I am almost done, problems crop up. It seems like the Live CD's init script can't locate the root filesystem in the squashfs, which the kernel not only does fine, but allows the init script to load all kernel modules.

The exact message provided is:
Code:

>>> Activating mdev
>>> Determining root device...
!!! Could not find the root block device in .

Everything printed before this is just modules loading.

It seems that some kernel option somewhere was screwing with boot. It's working now. The current problem is something with Xorg. I am working on that at the moment.
