Can someone please help me. I am having so much trouble with this new Gentoo install. I have been using this distro for over 10 years but this is the first time I've ever had major problems with it. This time the problem is that I get random console errors saying Input/Output errors or error messages stating that the / file system is read only afer using the computer for a few minutes then the computer locks up and I have to power cycle the machine. I've checked log files and I see no errors as far as I can tell in /var/log. This is a new SSD and I ran fsck.ext4 from the Gentoo Live DVD EotWE on the drive and all seems fine. It mostly happens after trying to use portage.

If you're experienced and willing to try something new, why not have a go at another install using BTRFS instead of EXT4 with an SSD?

see Linuxz87 link below.

What vendor and model SSD is this? How long have you had it powered on?

model number is Intel 335 80GB consumer level drive that has not been powered on long. After messing with it last night it seems I only get this problem after I start KDE/XServer. I was able to emerge -e system && emerge -e world last night with X not running with no problem. but afterward when I rebooteed and started KDE/Xserver I ran into that problem again.

I was actually thinking about using btrfs at first but if there is anything I hate about Gentoo it's the long install process, so if I could fix this without reinstalling that would be great.

What appears in dmesg when the failures begin?

I wish I knew once the errors come up the system is pretty much dead and there is nothing I can do except do a hard reboot.
