I have a Gentoo machine (64-bit) with software RAID on boot which was set up previously by someone who optimised the kernel for that machine.
Now I want to shift the disks to a new machine (also 64-bit) but the kernel panics and reboots. I could pull out the kernel sources and compile one myself, but I thought it good to ask...
Is there an easy (and perhaps Gentoo-like) way to add a generic "rescue" kernel, before shifting the disks to the new machine, so that it can boot the disks regardless of architecture?
*(with software RAID enabled, of course, but I believe that's now default in generic, too)
