After installing gentoo through live cd i reboot the system and got the following error

Code:
Fail to mount root
mount: mounting /dev/sda3 on /NEWROOT Faild : invalid argument
could not mount specified root , try again
could no find the root block device .


Here is my fstab
Code:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# noatime turns off atimes for increased performance (atimes normally aren't
# needed; notail increases performance of ReiserFS (at the expense of storage
# efficiency).  It's safe to drop the noatime options if you want and to
# switch between notail / tail freely.
#
# The root filesystem should have a pass number of either 0 or 1.
# All other filesystems should have a pass number of 0 or greater than 1.
#
# See the manpage fstab(5) for more information.
#

# <fs>         <mountpoint>   <type>      <opts>      <dump/pass>

# NOTE: If your BOOT partition is ReiserFS, add the notail option to opts.

LABEL=GentooLinux                          /    ext4 defaults,noatime  0      1

proc        /proc        proc    defaults             0 0
shm         /dev/shm     tmpfs   nodev,nosuid,noexec  0 0

how can I solve this problem ?

Did you try with UUID or /dev/sda3 for root?

boot the cd, mount the gentoo partitions (use your device names if not sda1 and sda3, enter the chroot, as in:
Code:
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/gentoo
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot
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"
then
Code:
emerge pciutils usbutils wgetpaste
lspci -k | wgetpaste
fdisk -l | wgetpaste
ls -l /boot
wgetpaste /usr/src/linux/.config
wgetpaste /boot/grub/grub.conf
wgetpaste /etc/fstab

post the url's returned

Do you use a kernel with initrd or without?

If without did you enable the SATA drivers and ext4 support as built in and not as modules?

/usr/src/linux.config:
CONFIG_SATA_AHCI=y
CONFIG_EXT4_FS=y

ok and now I noticed it had not enabled ext4 in the kernel, I thought it was automatically enable in genkernel

I compile again the kernel

.config:
# CONFIG_EXT4_FS is not set


You will have no luck mounting ext4 partitions without support in the kernel (although why genkernel doesn't set this as a default is beyond me), also at least for me genkernel seems to prefer the old PATA drivers resulting in partitions being named /dev/hd* and in the kernel not finding the root device as it's looking for sda.

Run
Code:
genkernel --menuconfig all


Goto "Device Drivers" and uncheck ATA/ATAPI/...
Goto "File Systems" und set ext4 support to yes.
