Default While installing Gentoo: emerge gentoo-sources hangs at Applying 4400_alpha-sysctl-uac.patch

I see with top in another virtual terminal that rm uses 100% CPU. Is
there any way to continue the installation?




Maybe try a different version of gentoo-sources?

Vanilla-sources will solve the problem until boot time, unless you have
ext4 partitions.

I am configuring vanilla-sources right now. But I got a scary security
warning. So the plan is:
1. Go through make menuconfig.
2. Make kernel and modules.
3. Install kernel and modules.
4. Configure bootloader.
5. Disconnect ethernet cable.
6. Boot into new system.
7. Emerge gentoo-sources (assuming that this actually works better in
the new system, without chroot).
8. Copy over .config.
9. Make oldconfig.
10. Make kernel and modules.
11. Install kernel and modules.
12. Configure bootloader (add Gentoo kernel).
13. Boot into the Gentoo kernel.
14. Configure bootloader (remove Vanilla kernel).
15. Remove Vanilla kernel and modules.
16. Unmerge vanilla-sources.
17. Reconnect ethernet cable.


Yes, I created ext4 partitions. Maybe that was stupid. I should have
stuck to ReiserFS 3.6 which has worked so well on the old system for
over 5 years. But at least I made /boot ext2 as usual.

Now I have seen what happens when trying to boot a vanilla kernel with
ext4 partitions:

[ 1.558807] Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the

Actually that seems unrelated to vanilla-sources and ext4. I just
compiled SCSI disk support (BLK_DEV_SD) as a yes instead of module. Now
it boots. (This is a "Intel Corporation ICH9M/M-E SATA AHCI Controller
