Gentoo boot problem on Dell Inspiron 1501


This may be an overly easy question, but I don't know the answer and can't find it on google.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 which is currently running the 2.6.18-gentoo-r6 kernel. The hard drive controller is an ATI SB600 Non-Raid-5 SATA. Boot menu.lst entry for that is:

Quote:
# For booting GNU/Linux
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.18-gentoo-r6
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.18-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/sda6 pci=nomsi irqpoll
I am trying to upgrade to a 2.6.28-gentoo-r5 kernel:
Quote:
# For booting GNU/Linux
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.28-gentoo-r5
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.28-gentoo-r5 root=/dev/sda6 pci=nomsi irqpoll
Using the same config I had from the 2.6.18 kernel, I recompiled the 2.6.28 kernel. However, it hangs on boot with this error:
Quote:
VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy.
Now, the megaraid driver that normally would have found /dev/sda (hard drive) did not find it. This is what it reports (2.6.28):
Quote:
megaraid: 2.20.5.1. (Release Date: Thu Nov 16 15:32:35.EST 2006)
megasas: 00.00.04.01 Thu July 24 11:41:51 PST 2008
Driver 'sd' needs updating - please use bus_type methods
Driver 'sr' needs updating - please use bus_type methods
And, it never reports the sda drive. This is what it reports from the 2.6.18 kernel:

Any ideas what I need to do to get the 2.6.28 kernel to boot?

in you kernel configuration make sure under file system, nfs, root= nfs is unchecked. not sure of exact names, but i do know it,s where you config the kernel for you file system menu and under the nfs submenu. had same problem

Thanks for the reply, and I did remove boot from NFS (didn't need it anyway).

Unfortunately, that does get rid of it failing to boot from NFS, but it still fails to boot because it doesn't recognize the boot drive /dev/sda. So, now it kernel panics on: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0). The problem looks like it's not recognizing the hard drive for some reason.

No, because the only thing that reports as hd<anything> from the boot messages is the cdrom drive. The hard drive is not recognized there.

BTW, if anyone has a problem with bootup and get's a kernel panic, you could enable root on NFS. That will cause the system to pause before panicing (waiting to see if you put in a boot floppy). This is useful because if it panics, you can't go back and look at the kernel messages that scrolled off the screen.

nuwen52,

What do you mean by
Quote:
Using the same config I had from the 2.6.18 kernel
config files change between kernels. You must run
Code:
make oldconfig
in the new kernel after you copy the .config file to its new home.

There have been a lot of changes between 2.6.18 and 2.6.28, so saying no to all the changes will generate a kernel with most of the SATA support turned off.

Failure to use make oldconf will get you a kernel that is as mess, as the .config will not be legal for the new kernel.

You know, I think I remembered doing that once before, but I completely forgot to do it this time. Thanks! I'll try that and post back what happens.

Well, no change. It is still not recognizing the /dev/sda. And, /dev/hd is still only the cdrom.

Edit: actually, there is one change. The original error messages are different:
Still shows:
Driver 'sd' needs updating - please use bus_type methods
No longer show:
Driver 'sr' needs updating - please use bus_type methods

nuwen52,

Those warnings are for the kernel SCSI layer maintainer and are harmless.

From your original post
Code:
SCSI device sda: drive cache: write back
sda: sda1 sda2 sda3 sda4 < sda5 sda6 >
the kernel can see your SATA drive and the partitions it contains.
It follows that its failing to read the root filesystem.

That would mean that the filesystem driver for your root partition is not in the kernel.

I assume that root is one of the partitions on /dev/sda ?

The section that you mention was taken from a dmesg using the 2.6.18 kernel. The 2.6.28 kernel boot does not have:
SCSI device sda: drive cache: write back
sda: sda1 sda2 sda3 sda4 < sda5 sda6 >

And, the filesystems are ext3, and that is built into the kernel.

I wasn't very clear on that and have modified the original post a little. Sorry about that.

Hi,
Is the following grub-line correct?
Code:
# For booting GNU/Linux
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.18-gentoo-r6
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.18-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/sda6 pci=nomsi irqpoll
is sda3 your '/boot'?

Yes, that is correct. sda3 is my /boot partition. I have it dual booting with Windows also (unfortunately, I need both). Partition table:
1 = Dell Utility (don't know why I kept this)
2 = Windows
3 = /boot
4 = Extended
5 = swap
6 = /
Code:
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.18-gentoo-r6
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.18-gentoo-r6 root=/dev/sda6 pci=nomsi irqpoll
is taken directly from my working kernel boot, which is why I used that as a template for the 2.6.28 entry. (which may not have been the perfect idea) The 2.6.28 boot is actually finding the kernel and starting the boot, but when it gets to mounting the root filesystem, it cannot find it and sda is not recognized.

nuwen52,

It sounds like your SCSI or low level SATA kernel options are missing or incorrect.
Please post the output of lspci so we can see your hardware.
