Nothing seems borken here, I just don't like seeing error messages :). I see the following during the boot process:

fsck.xfs not found
error 2 while executing for /dev/hda4

Later...

Mounting local fs
modprobe: modprobe: can't locate module nls_cp437
modprobe: modprobe: can't locate module nls_iso8859-1
modprobe: modprobe: can't locate module nls_iso8859-1
modprobe: modprobe: can't locate module nls_iso8859-1

RE: fsck.xfs... my /etc/fstab is set for xfs. However, I'm pretty sure I set it up as either ext3 or ext2 during install.
/boot is set for ext3, and I thought I set it for ext2. Is there a way to find out what fs it really is?

Hmmm... Weird.
AFAIK, nothing should modify your fstab for you (or at least, not without asking you).

I'm sure there's a really simple command to check what fs a device is, but... I don't know it. :-)
The complicated way is to use parted... get it to display the partition table of your drive, and it lists the fs types.

Yeah, I wouldn't have thought anything would have changed it either... maybe I was dislexic when I set it up :).
In any case, I emerged parted and it indicated /boot and / were ext3, so I changed the fstab. When I rebooted,
I saw a message that said /dev/hda4 ( / ) hadn't been checked in 53 mounts, check forced. 53 could very well
have been since install, not sure. Got that out of the way, thanks. I was mainly concerned that if I changed fstab
to the wrong fstype, it wouldn't boot.

Thanks for the tip.

Anyone have any ideas on the modprobe errors?

I get the modprobe errors when I mount a fat32 partition, I think it's because I didn't specify the partition type in fstab, so it's trying a few different ones before figuring out what it is.

Check if any entries in fstab don't have a partition type.

I know this one:

Quote:
modprobe: modprobe: can't locate module nls_cp437
modprobe: modprobe: can't locate module nls_iso8859-1


Compile these nls_iso8859-1 and cp437 iso values in the kernel and these errors will be gone. So not as modules.

I wonder if it has to do with this line mounting my fat32 shared drive:
/dev/hdd1 /mnt/shared vfat noatime 0 0

Will give that a shot.

Thanks

That did the trick. I didn't have them as modules either. Found it under File System -> Native Language Support if anyone else has this problem.

Thanks for the help.
