hi,guys.i'm in trouble now.

i used genkernel compiling linux kernel 3.3.8-gentoo

Code:

(chroot) Gentoo-2012 / # zcat /proc/config.gz > /usr/share/genkernel/arch/x86/kernel-config
(chroot) Gentoo-2012 / # genkernel all


then what i get...

Code:

* Gentoo Linux Genkernel; Version 3.4.24_p2
* Running with options: all

* Linux Kernel 3.3.8-gentoo for x86...

boot cd and enter chroot, nominally:
Code:
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/gentoo
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot
cp /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf
mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
mount -o bind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev
chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
env-update
source /etc/profile
export PS1="(chroot) $PS1"
(use your disk/partition names if different)
then
Code:
emerge linux-firmware
genkernel all

thanks for your reply.

It appears that you're not properly chrooted into the gentoo environment.

Paste back the your chroot sequence and the output of fdisk -l

I suspect

shows that you are installing from the dvd and then replacing the genkernel kernel configuration file with the dvd's kernel configuration file. Importing the kernel configuration from any running gentoo-based cd system used to work pretty consistently. These days you can import the kernel configuration of a running install-*-minimal-2012*.iso cd system with a high expectation of success. From any other running linux system including gentoo-based cd's; success is unlikely. As I see your case, the imported config is failing while attempting to compile drivers and external firmware for radeon video cards into the kernel. I had hoped that emerging linux-firmware would provide necessary files to allow that. Assuming that the current error printout is the same as before that was a false hope. If the error no longer cites radeon, some other problem exists. In either case, if you continue to wish to use genkernel vice a manual kernel; I would suggest: boot cd/dvd, enter chroot, then:
Code:
emerge --unmerge genkernel gentoo-sources
rm -rf /usr/src/linux
rm -rf /usr/share/genkernel
emerge genkernel gentoo-sources
genkernel all


in addition to the radeon video problem noted above, the dvd config file is significantly older than the 3.3.8 kernel; that may be the source of other errors or the warnings you see in the genkernel output.
