New Funtoo installation on laptop.
I see the boot screen, I press enter, it boots fast until it goes to dm-raid. The cursor still works, but never scans!
All I can see from the black screen:

Code:

:: Scanning for 3w-9xxx...3w-9xxx loaded.
:: Scanning for cciss...cciss loaded.
:: Scanning for hpsa...hpsa loaded.
:: Scanning for DAC960...DAC960 loaded.
:: Scanning for sx8...sx8 loaded.
:: Scanning for aacraid...aacraid loaded.
:: Scanning for megaraid...megaraid loaded.
:: Scanning for megaraid_mbox...megaraid_mm, megaraid_mbox loaded.
:: Scanning for megaraid_sas...megaraId_sas loaded.
:: Scanning for qla2xxx...qla2xxx loaded.
:: Scanning for lpfc...lpfc loaded.
:: Scanning for aic94xx...libsas, aic94xx loaded.
:: Scanning for mpt2sas...raid_class, mpt2sas loaded.
:: Scanning for usb-storage...usb-storage loaded.
:: Scanning for xhci-hcd...xhci-hcd loaded.
:: Scanning for sl811-hcd...sl811-hcd loaded.
:: Scanning for hid-gyration...hid gyration loaded.
:: Scanning for hid-petalynx...hid-petalynx loaded.
:: Scanning for hid-pl...hid-pl loaded.
:: Scanning for hid-samsung...hid-samsung loaded.
:: Scanning for hid-sony...hid-sony loaded.
:: Scanning for hid-sunplus...hid-sunplus loaded.
:: Scanning for scsi_wait_scan...scsi_wait_scan loaded.
:: Scanning for dm-crypt...dm-crypt loaded.
:: Scanning for dm-raid..._

...and all stops there!
What is this and what you suggest me to do?

rpil,

Don't load dm-raid is the obvious answer but Funtoo isn't Gentoo so I don't know how to do that.

Do you really need dm-raid?
If the kernel driver for fake (BIOS) raid.

Is this when you try to boot your own install or when you bood a liveCD to start the install?

You might try nodmraid on the kernel line in grub.conf

Neddy,
The problem is when I boot my own installation. Boots so fast but it stops at
Code:
:: Scanning for dm-raid

I putted dm-raid in the blacklist and now stuck at pata_qdi!!!
What is all that? :?

Also, there is no grub.conf, it uses Grub2 and it is boot.conf.

rpil,

It soound slike you have mde your kernel with one of the automated scripts. These things procude a general purpose boot anywhere kernel which is rarely ideal for a source based distro because you know exactly where it needs to boot.

These automated susyems do not fet up the kernel for your hardware - they make every module known to Linus.
pata_qdi is a PATA driver, probably for hardware you don't own. Try adding it to the blacklist too.

You might also try to make a kernel following kernel-seeds.org
Thay will provide you with a lean mean 'seed' .config file that you need to add your hardware and filesystems to.
For help with a seed post in the kernel seeds sticky in unsupported software.

Well, I guess I'm alright now!
I recompiled the kernel but with no luck. So I opened my /etc/boot.conf and putted the following line in:
Code:
noload=pata_qdi

like this:
Code:
boot {
        generate grub
        default "Funtoo Linux genkernel"
        timeout 3
}

"Funtoo Linux" {
        kernel bzImage[-v]
        # params += nomodeset
}

"Funtoo Linux genkernel" {
        kernel kernel[-v]
        initrd initramfs[-v]
        params += real_root=auto noload=pata_qdi
        # params += nomodeset
}


Also I had already pata_qdi in the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf.
After this my system rebooted perfectly!
