  1. Over time I have experienced problem that my keyboard does not work during early boot, the time where I am supposed to make key-map selection on system-rescue-cd, but - more important - at the time I am expected to enter encryption key to unlock my encrypted partitions. If I end up in rescue mode I can't do anything, not even ctrl-alt-delete to reboot. I have had the problem on my current and previous hardware if I am using debian-sources (4.8 and 4.14). I have this problem with all kernels I have tested with my present hardware (ASUS Prime Z370). Naturally it failes with my ordinary logitech k750 keyboard but it also fails with a ordinary plain USB cable connected USB-keyboard. I have played around with different settings in kernel (gentoo-sources) to build in or not support for USB, logitech modules, the fundamental USB HIDBP, etc and cannot observe any difference during boot (but I managed to disable mouse in KDE). I can see that the logitech modules are loaded when booting debian-kernel but it still wont work. This is the latest dmesg where HID is loaded [ 1.239301] hidraw: raw HID events driver (C) Jiri Kosina [ 1.239542] usbcore: registered new interface driver usbhid [ 1.239780] usbhid: USB HID core driver . . .

Dec 30 09:20:38 nuffsan kernel: [ 12.393989] cryptsetup (4105) used greatest stack depth: 13648 bytes left Dec 30 09:20:38 nuffsan kernel: [ 20.241508] cryptsetup (4179) used greatest stack depth: 13520 bytes left Password was entered before 12 and 20 seconds. I use the very same and slightly modified linuxrc and initrd.scripts. Modification is an own luks open function that is similar but independent from the cryptroot-stuff. Instead I open encrypted partitions specified at kernel line in specified order right before BTRFS scan is performed. Eventually I might send a patch. I have tried the solution mentioned in https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1063372.html but it didn't work.
  2. After many many considerations I went for EFI-boot in faovour of good old BIOS-boot using syslinux. The fall back solution is still BIOS-boot using extlinux. Problem is that with the very same (carefully verified) initramfs and kernel all my 16GB ram shows up in BIOS boot while only 4GB (well, 3.5) shows up booting from EFI. Any hint on the reason to this? My world does not depend on EFI-boot, the BOIS boot works very well and will be my primary until this is sorted out, but it would be good to understand. Some facts; Motherboard is ASUSTeK SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 Rev 1.xx BIOS is dated Date: 05/04/2016 and version 2901 that seems to be the latest version. # uname -a Linux kalle 4.13.12-gentoo #6 SMP PREEMPT Thu Dec 14 07:42:52 CET 2017 x86_64 AMD FX(tm)-9590 Eight-Core Processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux I have tried several combinations of legacy modes including no legacy support (CSM disabled).
  3. I am trying to bring up a system with ZFS following https://www.funtoo.org/ZFS_Install_Guide I'm having trouble booting. at the completion of the steps in the Guide. # grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg None of the 'initramfs-genkernel-XXXX' are being found that were build with the --zfs flag. The Guide indicates these initramfs-genkernel's should be the ones found in its example output. grub-mkconfig is finding the normal initramfs-debian-sources-XXXX and kernel files and these were not build with the --zfs flag to my knowledge. Anyone have any idea why this is happening and how to fix it? If I force a menu entry in /etc/grub.d/40_custom that uses initramfs-genkernel-XXXX the system will boot until it reaches the point where it tries to import the pools. Gives error cannot import 'rpool' no such pool or dataset destroy and re-create the pool... Yet if I go to the grub shell and do a zpool import rpool is found. What is going on here? I think something is broken as when emerging zfs, zfs-0.7.3 and and a new grub were pulled in. Has anyone gotten zfs install to work with the *current* portage? I know it worked in the past, doesn't seem to be working now.
  4. I'm looking to install Lilo to by MBR, but I'm not sure how to proceed with telling Lilo which kernel/initrd to use. I'm using the latest debian-sources kernel, so I would expect to write "image=/boot/debian-sources-x86_64-4.7.8" and the initrd bit to lilo.conf for it to boot. However my kernel isn't in /boot, and I'm not sure what to symlink to /boot/bzImage. I'd rather not creating symlinks, if it can be avoided.
  5. Yesterday night I performed a global upgrade of all my packages, noticed that it had genkernel updates included. The system upgraded nice and clean. I was doing my work while it worked. Turned off my PC after a depclean. But it seems that I had to eselect and boot-update the new kernel before doing that for now I can't boot to my OS anymore. Ok... Burned a System rescuecd 4.7.1 (the most recent on the install page). To try mounting my Funtoo installation directories and doing what I forgot last night. My problem is, everytime I boot this System rescuecd from my pen or any of the latest versions of it. I get at certain boot part of this cd what follows: 'Error: Cannot mount sysrcd.dat (none ....kernel details....)' and it gives me the basic terminal. (By the way, I'm currently having to use my Windows instalation, that's the only one that still works and burning the systemrescuecd with lili, (this kind of thing) is one of those situations that never gave any problem such as I reported... I'm stuck, for it never happened to me before. My computer hardware is very recent too. Can any of you guys possibly have an idea for me? Thanks in advance.
  6. After following the instructions on the /Install page I get this "boot: not a valid runlevel" message on boot, and / is read-only. I can login and remount / rw. (I feel like I should give more information, but don't know what would be relevant.)
  7. Hello, I followed this guide for setting up UEFI: http://www.funtoo.org/UEFI_Install_Guide After I select an option from GRUB the screen just goes black. I have SSH server on for testing and the system never goes up. I have tried with both the debian binary kernel and a custom kernel. I also haven't ran an emerge -auDN world (maybe this is my problem), as I'd imagine it shouldn't matter if Xorg radeon drivers are installed to get to a shell. Here is the config for the custom kernel I tried. Here is my make.conf And my grub.cfg Any ideas? My video card is an R9 270x if that helps :). Thanks.
