wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/var/log/dmesg was suggested in hopes of getting the saved/logged copy of dmesg that might have been created during the earlier attempt to boot the installed gentoo system. Unfortunately the hang at "Waiting for uevents to be processed ... " appears to occur before the /var/log/dmesg file is created. The just posted result of the dmesg command will be for the livemedia.

Zelt,

Code:
# CONFIG_DEVTMPFS_MOUNT is not set
may be a bad thing.
It may mean that you have an empty /dev.

One of the first messages on the screen should be
Code:
mounting /proc
mounting /sys
mounting /dev
I don't recall the order but is the mounting /dev line present?


DONAHUE,

Oops - sorry about that.

Thanks, here is the result https://gist.github.com/anonymous/639560bf749d21f97c6c

I believe what you asked me to look for is present.

I dont know what a empty /dev means, when I mount everything on startup it seems to successfully mount /dev(No errors returned)

After pressing ctrl alt f2, it seemed to pass "waiting for uevents to be processed ..." and displayed some following messages.
However it freezes again after

Code:
Autoloaded 1 module(s)
Checking local filesystems ...
/dev/sdb6 clean, 298317/1310720 files, 941898/5242880 blocks.


UPDATE

rebooted and now it seems to carry on further after checking filesystems, but freezes at

Code:
loading key mappings [gb]


UPDATE

on another reboot it managed to pass the loading key mappings

Code:
Error loading key mappings
ERROR: keymaps failed to start
Bringing up network interface lo ...
Activating additional swap space ...

INIT: Entering runlevel: 3

Error: interface eth0 does not exist
Ensure that you have loaded the correct kernel module for your hardware
ERROR: net.eth0 failed to start
ERROR:: cannot start netmount as net.eth0 would not start
Starting local



UPDATE

It seems this is the furthest I can get it, I rebooted around 25 times now, often gets stuck somewhere before this point but never exceeds "starting local"
As for bringing up a second terminal, it doesn't seem to allow it.

Do you know why is this so random?
Do I just have to rely on luck and keep rebooting until it finally works?

random failure - gut feeling tends toward hardware: memory? power supply? shaky hard drive? overheating?

however, software stuff: local is pretty much the last item run in the openrc init process before login

did you perform Step 7d of the handbook? as in:
Quote:
7.d. Kernel Modules

Configuring the Modules

You should list the modules you want automatically loaded in /etc/conf.d/modules. You can add extra options to the modules too if you want.

To view all available modules, run the following find command. Don't forget to substitute "<kernel version>" with the version of the kernel you just compiled:

Code Listing 4.1: Viewing all available modules
# find /lib/modules/<kernel version>/ -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*.ko' | less
For instance, to automatically load the 3c59x.ko module (which is the driver for a specific 3Com network card family), edit the /etc/conf.d/modules file and enter the module name in it.

Code Listing 4.2: Editing /etc/conf.d/modules
# nano -w /etc/conf.d/modules
modules_2_6="3c59x"
if so, from chroot,
Code:
wgetpaste  /etc/conf.d/modules
rm  /etc/conf.d/modules
to show what was there, then eliminate it, step 7.d. is vestigial in an openrc,baselayout2,udev system

from the chroot: repeat Step 6e of the handbook, at the end check
Code:
eselect locale list
is a UTF-8 the starred selection? if not
Code:
eselect locale set <appropriate number>



if not tried before: from the chroot, make sure any needed firmware is installed and that devtmpfs will be mounted
Code:
emerge linux-firmware openrc baselayout
cd /usr/src/linux;make menuconfig
edit to include
Quote:
Device Drivers
Generic Driver Options
<*> Maintain a devtmpfs filesystem to mount at /dev (DEVTMPFS [=y])
<*> Automount devtmpfs at /dev, after the kernel mounted the rootfs

In make menuconfig
Under generic drive options

"<*> Maintain a devtmpfs filesystem..." starts with

-*-

where as

"<*> Automount devtmpfs at /dev..." was set to

[ ]

I have now set to

[*]

Is there a difference between both prefixes?

Your post shows <*>, but they are not the same.

When you say recompile the kernel, is there a command for this? or does it mean to just switch off and boot from harddrive?

as far as a potential hardware problem is concerned, the gentoo hard drive could still be suspect.

Section 7 of the gentoo handbook.
I use manual kernel and
Code:
make && make modules_install && make install
(step 7b of the handbook) (kernel acquires a vmlinuz-3.14.14-gentoo type name)
old style :
Quote:
Code:
make && make modules_install

When the kernel has finished compiling, copy the kernel image to /boot. Use whatever name you feel is appropriate for your kernel choice and remember it as you will need it later on when you configure your bootloader. Remember to replace <kernel-version> with the name and version of your kernel. Code Listing 3.10: Installing the kernel
Code:
cp arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage /boot/<kernel-version>

Still recommend running:
Code:
wgetpaste  /etc/conf.d/modules
rm  /etc/conf.d/modules
from the chroot

-*- is an automatic selection based on other selections; <*> is selected by user, they are functionally the same

boot livemedia, mount gentoo partition,
Code:
ls /mnt/gentoo/var/log/dmesg
, if you now have the dmesg file
Code:
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/var/log/dmesg
post the url

from livemedia, gentoo partition mounted,
Code:
lspci -k | wgetpaste
wgetpaste  /mnt/gentoo/etc/rc.conf
wgetpaste /proc/cpuinfo
lsusb | wgetpaste
post urls

from the chroot:
Code:
emerge -s udev | wgetpaste

Can I power down my PC after what I have done? yes. preservation here or in pastebins is fine.

make sure you are in the chroot correctly, run looking for equivalent responses
Code:
find / -name emerge

/usr/bin/emerge
/usr/lib64/portage/bin/emerge
Code:
ls -l /usr/bin/emerge

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25 Apr 4 02:14 /usr/bin/emerge -> ../lib/portage/bin/emerge
Code:
ls -l /usr/lib64/portage/bin/emerge

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2278 Apr 4 02:14 /usr/lib64/portage/bin/emerge
if the ls -l reveal the symlink and emerge are present and
Code:
emerge -s udev
and if
Quote:
-bash: emerge: command not found
is returned it would appear that the environment is corrupted.

lsusb can be run from the chroot after
Code:
emerge usbutils
should be present in sysrescd, not sure about minimal install cd.

my present proposal is that I provide you a replacement kernel config updated using oldconfig from pappy's last kernel seed (3.9.9). I at least have been seeing problems with genkernel.

I cannot progress to the usbutils etc, because emerge still returns

-bash: emerge: command not found



I fail to see how its possible for anybody without a PHD In quantum mechanics, astrophysics AND pure mathematics to successfully build a Gentoo system capable of use.

Thanks for your help but this just seems to go from one problem to the other, over and over.

Do you think I should start again? Its been now over 1 month of trying to fix this ****

What do you recommend?

you need to be in the chroot. I gather your livemedia is neither sysresc nor gentoo minimal install
To enter the chroot, boot the livemedia to a network connection, then run:
Code:
mount /dev/sdb6 /mnt/gentoo
mount /dev/sdb7 /mnt/gentoo/home
cp -L /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/ #should only be needed on the first entry into chroot
mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
mount --rbind /sys /mnt/gentoo/sys
mount --rbind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev
chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash

then
Code:
source /etc/profile
export PS1="(chroot) $PS1"

then
make sure you are in the chroot correctly, run looking for equivalent responses
Code:
find / -name emerge

/usr/bin/emerge

Ok, commands now all worked fine.
Everything display according to what you said(apart from the corruption emerge not found part)

Here is a result from lsusb | wgetpaste that you asked for before. - https://gist.github.com/anonymous/ba8936d687c67c230cc6

As for you providing me with a replacement kernel config, If that's all that's left we might aswell try it.

Also I am using minimal installation CD.

files

install-amd64-minimal-20140724.iso
portage-20140730.tar.bz2
stage3-amd64-20140724.tar.bz2

If anybody here lives in london, I will pay them to come to my house and install this OS.

Thanks in advance.

replacing kernel configuration and recompiling: boot the livemedia, mount the gentoo partition, enter the chroot, then:
Code:
nano /etc/portage/make.conf
edit to include
Quote:
VIDEO_CARDS="nouveau"
INPUT_DEVICES="evdev synaptics"
then
Code:
eselect kernel set linux-3.14.14-gentoo
cd /usr/src/linux
make clean
make mrproper
wget -O /usr/src/linux/.config  http://dpaste.com/0EYTKDF.txt
make menuconfig
look through the config. change something, change it back, exit saving the configuration when prompted.
Code:
make && make modules_install && make install
this will create the kernel and copy the kernel, a text file of the configuration, and a system map to /boot. This kernel should be named vmlinuz-3.14.14-gentoo. edit /boot/grub/grub.conf to match
Quote:
default 0
timeout 10
#splashimage=(hd0,5)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title Gentoo Linux
root (hd0,5)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-3.14.14-gentoo root=/dev/sdb6

title Gentoo Linux (rescue)
root (hd0,5)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-3.14.14-gentoo root=/dev/sdb6 init=/bin/bb
exit the chroot and reboot

This is a stripped down kernel, no initrd/initramfs required or desired, good luck.

Ok, did what you said, seemed to process the commands fine without errors.

After rebooting and selecting the non rescue option, loads of text comes up on the screen(Different to the size and formatting of the previuos)

It stops at

[1.696063] Kernel Offset: 0x0 from 0xffffffff81000000 (relocation range: 0xffffffff800000000-oxffffffff9fffffff)

I cant type anything here, neither does it move.

Tried rebooting, does the same thing and stops at this point.

any kernel panic type verbiage? is the machine locked up at this point or does CTRL-ALT-DEL work. posting a photo of this screen could help.

boot the livemedia, run
Code:
fsck /dev/sdb
any problems? mount the gentoo partition run
Code:
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/usr/src/linux/.config
uname -a | wgetpaste
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/etc/portage/make.conf
ls -l /mnt/gentoo/ | wgetpaste
ls -l /mnt/gentoo/boot | wgetpaste
post the url's.

Yes.


Code:
fsck /dev/sdb


returns

e2fs_open2: Bad magic number in super-block
fsck.ext2: Superblock invalid, trying backup blocks
fsck.ext2: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sdb

The superblock could not be read or does not describe a valid ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem.


If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you
might try running e2fsck with and alternate superblock.


I do remember creating some type of swap at the beginning, maybe it refers to that?



Code:
wgetpaste /mnt/gentoo/usr/src/linux/.config

I am going to delete all partitions and go over to Arch linux, These problems are just going to persist over and over.
I am really not impressed with Gentoo.

Thanks for all your help.

Unfortunately I have already deleted all the partitions.

Thanks for all the help you gave me.
