This seems to be the way to submit a FAQ.

Comment and suggestions welcome.

If the root drive is hdc6, should the grub be (hd0,5)?

If you have a parallel ATA setup without SATA then No: hdc -> (hd2 but the 5 is right. So hdc6 -> (hd2,5)

However, this thread is really for comments on the FAQ: this is a GRUB question and you will find the answer in HOWTO Quick GRUB

Or do you mean that the FAQ should have at least a pointer to this HOWTO?

Thank you for having a look at this :D

Yes, there seems to be something wrong with their wiki — and just when you could have used it :(

I think it's temporary though, you've been patient in your other post, it looks as though you will have to find a little bit more :)

Thank you for this. Especially the IDE part and for pointing out lspci (which I'd forgotten about). I never could have guessed! :D

What a great FAQ! It's well-organized and it did help me out of trouble.
I've learned a lot from it.
Thanks, wynn. 8)

I guess it would be (hd2,5) if you have indeed 3 harddisks

I had trouble booting and tried a bunch of stuff, then, since I'm doing this install on VMWare, I decided to include all the options under Fusion MPT, since the my menu didn't exactly match the wiki. Presto! If someone else narrows it down, let us know exactly which one it is.

The SATA part needs update as of kernel 2.6.19 :)

Yes, thank you for the nudge.

As you are a mod, can you comment/suggest what to do next to get this added to the canonical FAQ list?

I went through all the steps given in F01: Step 3 but it is still not linked from KC13 in KC: Kernel Compilation.

KC13 just shipped ... and it needs a patch.

At the start of "3) The BIOS/kernel Shell Game" (which also needs font size and bold to match "2) Kernel panic — VFS error:") it says you need genkernel to mount the root filesystem using a LABEL or UUID.

Unfortunately this late change to the text hasn't made it to the GRUB and LILO configs.

The example GRUB config using LABEL should be
Code:
default 0
timeout 10

title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.19-r3
root (hd0,0)
kernel /kernel-2.6.19-gentoo-r3 real_root=LABEL=2006.1-root
initrd /initramfs--genkernel-x86-2.6.19-gentoo-r3
and the example LILO config using LABEL should be
Code:
boot=/dev/sda
prompt
timeout=50
default=Gentoo

image=/boot/kernel-2.6.19-gentoo-r3
  label=Gentoo
  read-only
  initrd=/boot/initramfs--genkernel-x86-2.6.19-gentoo-r3
  append="real_root=LABEL=2006.1-root"
but I'm not quite sure about the append line.

Your question should go in its own thread, this thread is intended for comments on KC13.

From your description, it looks as though the problem occurs after the root filesystem is mounted and is not covered by this FAQ.

Super Anleitung!!!

Also ich bin jetz vom 2.6.20-r8 Genkernel auf einen etwas performanteren, schlankeren und besser angepassten "handgemachten" 2.6.2-r8 umgestiegen und hatte die genannten Probleme wahrscheinlich wegen der fehlenden Initrd, aber mit diesen Tipps hat dann alles wunderbar funktioniert!

Möchte mich nochmal dafür bedanken und hoffentlich hilft sie anderen genau so gut wie mir!

Gruss
HMP
