Boot off a live cd and run "lspci -k" be sure you compile that in as[*]
as Fredrik mentioned. Also you must have the file system compiled in
too. And make sure your pointing your boot loader to the correct root
file system.

Default Kernel Configuration

All,
* I recently asked about some issues about getting my kernel to boot.* I would rather not use the ubuntu kernel as previously suggested unless it is completely safe.* I am currently booting successfully off of Ubuntu running kernel version 2.6.32-21-generic.* The errors I kept getting when booting the gentoo kernel was an RPC failure for NET:.* Not really sure what that could be.* The following is my lspci output.

Please copy the full error you get and post it here.

Keep in mind for the future to always do this. We cannot help you without that
info, so always just provide it in your first mail.

Why would it be unsafe? The Ubuntu kernel config from*/proc/config.gz is a config optimised for desktop systems of your architecture by a bunch of clever guys working for Canonical.*
Whilst it may be possible to optimise the kernel very specifically for your hardware, I think you would notice more shortcomings of that than benefits, and it just seems a lengthy waste of time.

Hi Aaron,

Along with posting back your detailed error, please also post the output of
this:

cat /usr/src/linux/.config | grep RPC

Alternatively, run:

cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig

then enter "/" and type the string that you want to seach for in the kernel
options - in this case "RPC". Read the list that you are offered and see if
you have enabled something in there which is not appropriate.

If you are unsure whether you need a particular kernel option or not and the
kernel help is not detailed enough, you can google for it to find out what it
does in more detail, or search and read relevant documentation in
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/

BTW, you do not seem to be using the latest stable gentoo kernel sources - is
there a reason for this?

PS. The Ubuntu kernel is safe enough, or Canonical would have patched it
sooner or later. It may be a bit bloated though, just like the Gentoo
genkernel is, so either of these are a good start with a working kernel for
your slimming down exercise.

Hope this helps.
