If you follow the handbook as it is, you should end to something like, Neo ~ # fdisk -l /dev/sda Disk /dev/sda (SGI disk label): 64 heads, 32 sectors, 8682 cylinders Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 bytes ----- partitions ----- Pt# Device Info Start End Sectors Id System 1: /dev/sda1 boot 51 101 104448 83 Linux native 2: /dev/sda2 swap 102 1079 2002944 82 Linux swap 3: /dev/sda3 1080 1748 1370112 83 Linux native 4: /dev/sda4 1749 8681 14198784 83 Linux native 9: /dev/sda5 0 50 104448 0 SGI volhdr 11: /dev/sda6 0 8681 17780736 6 SGI volume ----- Bootinfo ----- Bootfile: /unix ----- Directory Entries ----- 0: btld3r sector 4 size 73684 Follow exactly the instructions in http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-mips.xml?part=1&chap=4 , the section "Getting the SGI Volume Header to just the right size". After that I think that you will be fine. Use the dd command to delete the partition table, and start again. Panagiotis -- gentoo-mips@l.g.o mailing list
