Gentoo Linux
 
I installed Gentoo twice becuase the first time i missed something in the kernel params and it screwed up.

I have Gentoo installed now and each time i boot with grub it says "error file not found".

I have bzImage stored in /boot/bzImage. this is my menu.lst file.




default 0
timeout 15
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title=Gentoo Linux
root (hd0,4)
kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hda5

title=Windows NT Workstation
root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Does it say which file it cannot find?

You have two files on which it could potentially fail:

/boot/bzImage and /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

i'd presume it's the splash line, as you imply that the splash file is on hda1, which you later say is the NT drive.

Nevermind, i fixed it by recompiling the entire kernel and putting a new bzImage file.

Now a new problem...

Cannot load module "dev_fs".

And the system wont startup normally, only in ro mode..HELP

*EDIT* the splash line was fine, i copied the stuff wrong (oviously cant copy from linux ->windows)

therion12 02-19-2002 12:39 PM

What is this "dev_fs" anyways?

hey, how about Mr I-know-more-than-you-do-about-everything-even-tho-i'm-only-15 tries to find something out for himself for once???

therion12 02-19-2002 12:51 PM

? i'm asking a normal question, it cant load the module dev_fs and i have no idea how to load it. Chill out dude and have a qalude.

therion12 02-19-2002 01:18 PM

Ok guys don't know if it will help but here is the close-to-exact error message i get:

Can't load module dev_fs, filesystem type not supported [OOPS]

remove the module from loading and see if that boots up with no errors or problems.

also, a Q is always followed with a U after it.. just to let ya know. Like quaalude...

How do you remove a module from loading? i didn't enable any modules when i compiled my kernel.

EDIT*************I finally found a tutorial BRB

hey, i never said its the best thing ever :)

But it would help if my stupid mouse actually worked...

- Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical 5 btn

- Protocol (tried psaux, IMPS/2, and none work)

- device (tried mouse, sysmouse)

about your mouse problem. I have the same mouse and use /dev/psaux with the ImPS/2 protocol. But this didnt work until i uninstalled gpm. gpm is a program that allows you to use your mouse inside the console - it was fighting X (which im assuming is where you are having probs) for control of the mouse. I belive gentoo installs gpm by default. Try uninstalling gpm and see if your problems go away. Here is a snippit of my XF84Conifg-4

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Configured Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "CorePointer"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "false"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection
