/sbin/rc: line 271: /sbin/devfsd: No such file or directory
That's the first error i get.

The second one is as follows:

"fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/hda6 /dev/hda6:

And the third:

The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. if the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesysten
(and not swap or ufs or anything else. then the superblock is corrupt, and
you might try running e2fsck with an alternative superblock.

I guess this means i just have to start over again?
iv installed gentoo with the partitions:

/dev/hda1 /boot
/dev/hda5 /swap
/dev/hda6 /home

I thought i follow the gentoo installation guide word for word..
but something went wrong here...

Since the partitions are corrupt i guess there's no chance to recover the system?

Anyone have any ideas on how this could have happened?
cfdisk says:
fatal error could not open disk or something like that

well when did this start happening? on the first boot? where does corruption come into this? we're not psychic...

the devfsd part implies that you don't have devfs installed, which you shouldn't do if you'er installing a new system, you should be using udev, which is part of the installation guide now. i would guess that you've enabled devfs support in the kernel, which has been detected, but theebuld wasn't installed. as for fsck... again a missing package i'd assume, if this NEVER worked that is...

Well as i cant view the partition table threw cfdisk i figured the partitions were corrupt?

And yeah its a brand new installation, and yupp its the first boot.

What would you recommend i should do now?

Its the way 2.6 and gentoo 2005.0 do it
I got the same thing, it's a Gentoo 2005.0 thing, I suspect a misconfiguration in the kernel (2.6).

After initial reboot, there is no /dev/sda or /dev/sda1 sda2 sda3 apparently it's /dev/discs/disc0/part1 or /dev/discs/disc0/part2 /dev/discs/disc0/part3

I personally don't like it. I've got too many years experience using /dev/sda or /dev/hda or whatever to go this longer route. This is why my fstab failed to initialize the system. If you edit your /etc/fstab.conf and change /dev/sda1 to /dev/discs/disc0/part1 and so on, it will work.

I can't figure out which option in the kernel gives me the older /dev/hda or /dev/sda stuff, I prefer backwards compatibility. I've enabled all the devfs stuff.
