I bought a CD set of Gentoo 2005.1 for AMD64, and am trying to install it.
The system is AMD64-3200+, with 1.5G ram, and an unformatted 300 G hard
When I tried to boot from the CD it got lost doing the auto hardware
config. I figured it was because I had several TV tuner card plugged in,
Boot: gentoo nodetect
It came up ok. I partitioned the HD ok. I set it up as:
dev Boot start end blocks id system
hda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
hda2 14 379 2939895 82 Linux swap
hda3 380 10000 772806824+ 83 Linux
hda4 10001 36482 212724697+ 83 "
I set hda1 & 3 to ext3 file system, and hda4 to ReiserFS
The root is /mnt/gentoo on /dev/hda3
I then did:
tar -xvjpf /mnt/cdrom/stages/stage3-20050709-2005.1.tar.bz2
tar -xvjf /mnt/cdrom/snapshots/portage-20050709.tar.bz2 -C /mnt/gentoo/usr
As I watched the blur flashing by on the monitor, about 2/3 of the way
through the lines began to rap. When the process stopped and I could see
what was happening; after each tar command it was stating
"cannot write no space left on device."
This baffles me as 10 Gig should be plenty of space?
Also I can't find a command that will show the amount of disk usage? I
can't even find a command that shows that I have /mnt/gentoo on hda3?
What have I done wrong?
