Having finally managed to install Gentoo (stage 3), I re-booted my PC. Gentoo seems to load fine until I hit some errors during the boot process. The first hint of trouble is a message saying the following;
/sbin/rc: line 271: /sbin/devfsd: No such file or directory
It then carries on, activating the swap and mounting the root filesystem. However, when it tries to check the filesystem I get the following;
Checking root filesystem...
fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/hdb3
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
Filesystem couldn't be fixed : (
It then gives an option of logging in as root or a normal start, which just reboots the system.
Any ideas? What have I done wrong? I seem to have got myself in a bit of a hole!
Here is my fstab file, if its any help;
/dev/hdb1 /boot ext2 defaults,noatime 1 2
/dev/hdb2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdb3 / ext3 noatime 0 1
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0
Thanks for your time
