I keep getting the same error when I try to install getnoo 2005.0 on my machine (I've tried a couple times). Everything seems to go fine until I have to reboot into my new system. It begins booting fine until I get to:

Activating swap OK
Remounting root filesystem
Checking filesystem
/sbin/rc:line 28:/sbin/fsck Permission denied
then logger permission denied
Mounting ramfs at dev... OK

a couple more successful mounts/operations

Rebooting
/sbin/rc:line 52:/sbin/reboot Permission denied
then a whole bunch of Permission denied errors

finally it ends with:

INIT:cannot execute "/sbin/agetty"

Any help is appreciated in advance.

What are your options in /etc/fstab?
What Filesystem are you using?
Have you installed the proper Filesystem tools (reiserfsprogs, xfsprogs, jfsprogs, depending on your FS)?
Do you load every module needed for your Board Chipsets

Try mounting you / with Options
Code:

/dev/<your_root>  /  <yourFS>  default 0 0


Run from Boot CD and check your FS with
Code:

chkfs.<yourFS> /dev/<your_root>

my fstab looks like this:
/dev/sda1 / reiserfs noatime,notail,users 1 1

I did emerge reiserfsprogs

As far as modules, I don't have anything in my kernel compiled as a module everything is built in and I believe I got support for all my gear. It seems to mount my drive fine at first so I don't think it's an sata driver problem, I believe I enabled the correct option. Then again I have a sneaky suspicion that it does have something to do with my kernel ( tho I've tried enabling/disabling some options and produced no change)

I would not mount / by users.

I'm not sure about notail, but noatime is a performance switch. So in doubt everything is working right, I would turn it all back to defaults. AFAIK the first 1 at the end of the line tells the system to check it every time. That's not a good idea for boottime reasons, but you should check
Code:

man fstab

for that

I have tried using just defaults for my options it made no difference, i tried reiser and ext3, no difference. I tried a stage 1 and a stage 3 install and it all brought me back to the same error. I am beginning to think it may be a hardware thing since I got almost the exact same error trying to get Suse 9.2 to run and that's pretty much an auto-install. Right now I'm running Ubuntu 5.04 and I have to say I'm pretty impressed (having not been much of a debian man). Everything was autodetected right the first time and the system was fully functional after a pretty quick and easy installation. Still I would love to get Gentoo running under 64 bits, it was the best on my old athlon xp. Anyways, thanks for the effort :)
