I have lost my kernel config and I'm in the process of creating a new kernel image, here's what I'm getting

http://en.zimagez.com/zimage/dsc0120172.php

here's my kernel .config:
http://pastebin.com/wfhP2jQQ

I have / on software raid (/dev/md0), /boot on /dev/sda and here's my grub.conf:
title Gentoo Linux 2.6.24-r5
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel2 root=/dev/md0 init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd

and my fstab line:
/dev/md0 / ext4 defaults 0 1

thanks

blakdeath,

Please post your lspci output.

The panic strace is not useful to me but a text message would be. It will be Kernel Panic! ....
The .... verbatim would be good.

Everything you posted looks self consistent but it may not be right for your hardware.
lspci will tell us that.

Is it the kernel config in this post?
Its still on the pastebin and I have it as I changed it still.

But u know that in /boot might be old config?

( btw before that trace was there any message ? in trace I see mount_block_root, so i guess file system drivers are not in kernel or something from disk - but thats just guess? )
Maybe u need CONFIG_MD_RAID1 also ?

I never used make install unfortunately, I just copy everything myself(except for the modules)
I forgot to add, the system works on an older kernel, metadata is 0.90, I'm not using an initrd, grub 0.97

blakdeath,

A few things. In the panic message, unknown-block(9,0) in useful.
Thats the kernel major and minor numbers of the device you have in root= ... in this case /dev/md0.
The message means that the kernel cannot see /dev/md0. Lets look at why not.

From your lspci
Code:
00:11.0 SATA controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] SB7x0/SB8x0/SB9x0 SATA Controller [IDE mode]
00:14.1 IDE interface: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] SB7x0/SB8x0/SB9x0 IDE Controller
02:00.0 SATA controller: JMicron Technology Corp. JMB363 SATA/IDE Controller (rev 03)
02:00.1 IDE interface: JMicron Technology Corp. JMB363 SATA/IDE Controller (rev 03)


From your kernel config you have
Code:
CONFIG_SATA_AHCI=y
# CONFIG_SATA_AHCI_PLATFORM is not set
# CONFIG_SATA_INIC162X is not set
# CONFIG_SATA_ACARD_AHCI is not set
# CONFIG_SATA_SIL24 is not set
# CONFIG_ATA_SFF is not set

As you have CONFIG_SATA_AHCI=y, then you only have support for
Code:
00:11.0 SATA controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] SB7x0/SB8x0/SB9x0 SATA Controller [IDE mode]
If your hard drives are connected to the JMicron controller, the kernel cannot see them. The drivers are hidden inside the
Code:
# CONFIG_ATA_SFF is not set
menu.
Further, your one working SATA Controller is in IDE mode. This will make it slow and in some cases, only a small number of its ports work. Again, if you are trying to use disabled ports, it won't work. IDE mode is intended for use once only by Windows XP users, so that they can install the ahci driver then switch away from IDE mode forever. Its a BIOS setting. Ensure its not set to legacy or IDE mode. lspci will show
Code:
00:11.0 SATA controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] SB7x0/SB8x0/SB9x0 SATA Controller [AHCI mode]
when you have it right.

So ... fix your BIOS setting ... that might be enough.
Add the drivers for your other SATA/IDE chipsets.

There are other things it can be too but from the information you have posted so far, thats the next steps.

simply fixing the bios settings was enough
I changed the sata mode from native IDE to ahci and as a result, sata ports are running in ahci mode now(that didn't fix the main issue)
what fixed the main issue was on the bios, there was some setting that ran the third and fourth sata ports in IDE mode, I changed that to SATA mode and the system booted succesfully

thanks Neddy
problem solved
