On bootup.
ERROR: sysfs failed to start
which then causes udev not to start... which is probably bad, i don't know what udev is, but i do know its important.

how do i fix this?

also, and not sure if this is good (but i think its related)

Code:
Mounting /run...
mount: wrong fs type...
/run/lock: creating directory
checkpath: mkdir: Read-only file system


Code:
mounting /dev/shm ...
mount: wrong fstype,....

Code:
mounting cgroup filesystem
mount: wrong fs type,...

We need more information to help you. Please show the output of emerge --info ; cat -n /etc/fstab ; rc-update show -v | cat -n, and at least 20 lines of context before the first error you quoted.

this is gonna be so fun to write... isn't there a way i could copy this whole thing into a file, put it on my usb drive then copy it over to my other pc? (i'm noob, sorry)

but some lines before the sysfs are


Code:
OpenRC 0.9.8.4 is starting up Gentoo Linux (x86_64)

/proc is already mounted, skipping
Mounting /run...
mount: wrong fs type...
/run/lock: creating directory
checkpath: mkdir: Read-only file system
WARNING: rc_sys not defined in rc.conf. Falling back to automatic detection
mount: wrong fs type....
Mounting debug filesystem...
Mounting cgroup filesystem...
mount: wrong fstype...
ERROR: sysfs failed to start
/dev is already mounted
ERROR: cannot start udev as sysfs would not start
Mounting /dev/shm...
mount: wrong fs type...
... (everything runs fine, activating swap devices? i'm pretty sure i disabled support for swap in the kernel..) until final entry
/Mounting cgroup filesystem...
mount: wrong fstype.

CONFIG_TMPFS is not set

what option in the menuconfig would that be?

looking for how to do that, i found another thread with the same problem from late May this year, but it doesn't say how to...

impatient... too impatient, i can't take to wait for an answer anymore, making new thread... (i couldn't find it by myself)

-solved it-

thanks a lot for your input khay :)

rabcor ...

you're welcome ... in future you can hit "/" in menconfig and enter a search term, and it'll will show you where its located.
