@NeddySeagoon - you're absolutely right about the kernel being old. i just rebuilt my kernel this weekend (and rebooted this am), but i can see that the date is from Feb 8:
Code:

office ~ # uname -a
Linux office 4.20.0-gentoo #1 SMP Fri Feb 8 15:25:21 EST 2019 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2320 CPU @ 3.00GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
office ~ #


i just checked what genkernel did, and it looks like it picked up a new version of the kernel (4.20.1 instead of 4.20.0):

Code:

office ~ # ls -ltr /boot
total 35928

i didn't realize that was happening - i thought i was always building 4.20.0 so i never updated my grub2.cfg file with the kernel. grrrrrr

thanks for pointing me in the right direction on this - ill reboot into the correct kernel this time :) and update this post with the status

alright - sure enough the kernel was the problem. Every time i was rebuilding and rebooting my kernel, i wasn't getting the changes because the kernel version rev'd to the latest release and i never knew about it. So after fixing it very carefully - i was able to finally mount the hard drives. big thanks to everyone (especially neddyseagoon) for getting me pointed in the right direction!

beerbellyswan,

Genkernel builds the kernel pointed to by the /usr/src/linux symlink.
You can manage that by hand or have emerge update it with every new kernel.

Both ways work as long as you know what its pointing to.
