Problems unpacking Stage3 tarball
Hello all, I've been using Ubuntu for a few years now and finally decided to make the switch to something more intense. I'm trying to dual-boot Gentoo with Windows 7 on a newly built computer. I've been following the installation documentation on Gentoo's site, but I keep encountering a problem.
First a quick background: I got to the end of the install already, but I had mistyped my grub configuration file, so I tried to go back through the livecd and edit it. Only, when I remounted everything and chrooted, there was no grub/boot folder. After a while, I just decided to start the install fresh and formatted the partition with ext3 again. Now, everything seems to go well until I try to unpack the stage3 tarball. It bombs out and gives me some errors:
I think these have to do with the previous almost-install I had accomplished, but I'm not sure of that, and wouldn't know how to fix that if it is the case.
# tar xjpf stage3-i686-20100824.tar.bz2
tar: ./boot/.keep: Cannot open: Read-only file system
tar: ./boot/boot: Cannot create symlink to '.': File exists
tar: ./boot: Cannot utime: Read-only file system
tar: ./boot: Cannot change ownershipt to uid 0, gid 0: Read-only file system
tar: ./boot: Cannot change mode to rwxr-xr-x: Read-only file system
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors.
If anyone's got an idea, it would be greatly appreciated! :D
