I have written a FAQ covering KC13: "I just installed a new kernel and now I'm getting a panic at boot time trying to mount the root partition. How do I fix this?" http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-497930-highlight-.html

As there is a limit on title length it has been shortened to "KC13: I just installed a new kernel and it won't boot"

Your comments and suggestions appreciated :D

greetings im not quite sure if its the right point, and if its not already covered, but as far as i searched its not.

what i suggest is following:
if you make a mistake at the point where you get the system installed, and trying to boot the kernel, and its not working, what do you need to do if you dont want to go through the whole install again.
so the commands etc needed, like mounting etc.

Thanks for the FAQ, I skimmed over it and it looks very good. I did the necessary steps to include it in the FAQ forum. Sorry for the long delay, this thread has very low volume and therefore participants in it don't get notifications of new posts.

The best way to contact a moderator is by replying to the Report violations, duplicates, misplaced posts, etc. which is checked daily at the very least. Please do so when you've written a new FAQ and nothing happens after announcing here.

A wiki would be a nice way to do the FAQ, so it could be written by EVERYONE.

I agree - text would be easier to maintain and should original author gone missing rest of community could continue to maintain it. Gentoo-wiki.com seems like a good place.

I am facing a kernel problem that turned into a kernel bug: http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8300.

It was very time consuming for 3 different reasons:
1) My new kernel just hang sometime and it can take a few days between 2 occurrences.
2) It was not easy to figure out what to do for someone that is not familiarized with kernel debugging.
3) I don't get any error messages even after enabling many kind of debug stuff in the kernel configuration. It just freeze when it hang.

I think at one more kernel FAQ would be nice. Something as KC17: What to do in case of unsolvable kernel issue, possible kernel bug.

A new FAQ "[FAQ] DriveStatusError (error=0x04)" has been written by cynric, please post feedback to that topic. Once the FAQ has been accepted, the feedback will be split off and the FAQ will be relocated to "Frequently Asked Questions".

an faq about remastering a custom gentoo iso of your own, would be nice i think. perhaps covering reasons and methods (of which there are at least several).
