mounting before filecopy.
I am new to Gentoo, and want to get it set up because i am under the impression that it is the unicorn of distros.. and have always stuck to just using a GUI installer (with the exception of BSD) in the past. I'm trying to get my command line installation skills down, and ran into a few problems.
Well, I'm working on installing Gentoo 2005.0 on one of my extra hard drives.. having a little issue in mounting the partitions soon after creation and formatting. I'm choosing to go the stage 2 route
I run through the fdisk, get everything set like this:
dev/hda1 bootable 32M linux
dev/hda2 768M linux swap
dev/hda3 remainder linux
then i run the formatting commands:
mke2fs -j /dev/hda3
and then my swapspace
everything works fine, no errors.
then when i go to swapon /dev/hda2 i get errors (already in use kinda message).
i figured wtf, and went on to try and mount my other partitions..
mount -t ext3 /dev/hda3 /mnt/gentoo (same type message)
mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot(device is busy message)
so I'm stuck, RTFM with nothing surfacing to help me.
ANYONE that wishes to respond with help, PLEASE DO.
my AIM and such are listed, till then.. I'm blowin' in doze. :-/
