Hello,

I just installed Gentoo on the Asus Tinker by following the instructions on this guide:
http://geekhouse.online/?p=41

I was able to boot Gentoo, but there is a very huge Problem:
The proc filesystem is not mounted.
Even with the appropriate settings in /etc/fstab.

One thing I noticed is, that the reformatting (mkfs.ext4) of the rootfs vanishes the kernel modules.

Mounting the procfs manually is resulting in:
Code:
mount: only root can use "--types" option (effective UID is 1003)

which is really strange, since I'm root:
Code:
localhost ~ # id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),1(bin),2(daemon),3(sys),4(adm),6(disk),10(wheel),11(floppy),26(tape),27(video)


Does anyone know what to do?

Best,
pacl

I compiled a new kernel, based on the debian kernel sources (branch linux4.4-rk3288):

and with the miniarm-rk3288_defconfig:

pacl,

A few things. First to get the best response from the forum, do not respont in you new topic until someone else has replied. Instead, edit your original post to add more information. This keeps your topic in the "unanswered posts" search, which many potential helpers use to find topics to respond to.

I have not used u-boot in a year or two but it sounds more like a kernel issue. OpenRC should mount /proc very early in the startup process.
Entries in fstab may be too late.

Now some more questions
How did you make your kernel?
Do you use an initrd and if so, how did you make that?

When you reformat root, the kernel modules are removed because they are stored in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/
You should preserve /lib/modules/ when you reformat root.
The are stored there by the
Code:
make modules_install
command.
Its sufficient to rerun that command in you complete kernel tree to recreate /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ for that particular kernel.

(effective UID is 1003) tells that the user is control at that time is not root.
This might be a hint that you do use an initrd and built it elsewhere as a regular user with that userID, so that is how it runs, or somehow bits of /sbin are owned by userID 1003. That could happen if you untarred the stage3 as that user, not root.

That was it and now it's running fine.

Thank you so much, best
