    Question [SOLVED] Some program might be trying access hardware directly


    Hi all

    I've been three days trying to install Gentoo.

    I installed it maybe 10 times or more

    Always these message shows in the booting :

    Some program might be trying access hardware directly

    (There is an attached image )

    Any idea ?

    First error is that matters.

    The picture is not clear enough to see, is it unknown-block(8,3) ?

    (8,3) is sda3, kernel is accessing it, this means your kernel has HDD controller support. Still, it cannot mount root filesystem.

    Firstly, is sda3 your root partition?
    Secondly, has it ext3 filesystem?

    Finally

    I fix it !

    The problem was in grub :

    I've changed this line in grub.conf :

    Code:
    kernel /boot/kernel root=/dev/sda3
    and it's fix !!

    Thanks friend
