    problem installing... ;)


    In the process of installing right now and trying to install grub. When I release the command "emerge grub" to the system the screen rips past tons of what appear to be errors, of which I can only catch the end. It says something about /usr/bin/emerge and more with /usr/lib/portage (quite a few errors on that one) and it ends in saying something like "OSError: [Errno 5] Input/output error: '/boot/grub'. Please help me so I dont give up again. Also--some kind of ext2fs error saying it cant read inode bitmap, if that helps, k?

    umm... firstly, can you emerge anything else right now? and secondly, is the drive mounted read-write?

    I've had some problems that could reassemble yours - these were caused by a broken harddrive. Try checking the hd with fsck.ext2 - it's worth a shot...

    If you need to see from the top to find errors, type this in the console:
    Code:
    emerge grub|less
    You will then be able to scroll up/down the errors.
