help with gentoo install
Hi, i've been having problems with Gentoo;i think im doin the wrong steps maybe someone could be of some help for me cfdisk,mk reiserfs /dev/hda1,mkswap /dev/hda1,swapon /dev/hda1, mount -t /dev/hda1/mnt/gentoo, mkdir /mnt/gentoo/boot links etc....
but when i install stage3 it install alot then say no device space left dont know what im doin wrong
looks to me that your making all your filesystems on one partion. Just for reference, hda is a drive, hda* is a partiton on that drive. So if you mk<somefs> /dev/hda you use the entire drive. Try using fdisk to make your partitions. Pay special attn. to what number it is on so you can put your root system on one partition and your swap on another.
This will put ext3 on your hda1 (boot), swap as hda2 and reiserfs on your root partition (hda3)
# mke2fs -j /dev/hda1
# mkreiserfs /dev/hda3
# mkswap /dev/hda2
# swapon /dev/hda2
