I'm using systemd and I'm trying to encrypt my hard drive. I select my kernel with grub and it starts booting. Then it gets as far s asking for my password and then it opens the LUKS device /dev/sda3. Next it activates Volume Groups and determines the root device. It says "Mounting /dev/mapper/vg_gentoo-root_gentoo as root...".

Then there is a kernel panic:

!! The filesystem mounted at /dev/mapper/vg_gentoo-root_gentoo does not appear to be a valid /, try again

I've tried making my kernel with both gentoo_sources and genkernel and I get the same problem. I prefer making my kernel with gentoo_sources manually rather than using genkernel, although I use genkernel always for my initramfs.

My kernel config is located at

My /etc/default/grub is located at

My dmesg log is located at

Here is my lsblk:


NAME                        MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE  MOUNTPOINT
sda                           8:0    0 931.5G  0 disk

    |-vg_gentoo-swap_gentoo 253:1    0     6G  0 lvm   
    |-vg_gentoo-boot_gentoo 253:2    0   512M  0 lvm   
    |-vg_gentoo-root_gentoo 253:3    0 718.2G  0 lvm   /
sdb                           8:16   1   7.3G  0 disk 
|-sdb1                        8:17   1   7.3G  0 part 
loop0                         7:0    0 232.6M  1 loop

I'm pretty sure the problem is with the kernel configuration or systemd but I'm not sure and I've done a lot of research and checked many guides. If it is of any help, my grub shows up as many question marks so I just have to press Enter on the first entry which works so far.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
