I am using a Universal live cd, www.gentoo.org said this was supposed to be 650 MB, but I only have 587 MB. Is this part of my problem?
I typed tar -xvjpf /mnt/cdrom/stages/stage3-x86-2004.2.tar.bz2
Then a whole bunch of files are displayed, so it looks like it is working.
Then I get this error,
tar: /bin/bzegrep: Cannot write: no space left on device
tar: Skipping to next header
bzip2: Input file= (stdin) output file= (stdout)
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
I gave it a 518 MB swap partition, and a 35 GB boot partition
I was hoping to be able to dual-boot with Windows XP, but now I can't even boot to that
I get "error loading operating system"
Any help solving this problem is appreciated.
