It does appear that 20G was not enough in your case.
This is strange. I have 7.5 GB in a new install that includes X and Gnome and a few odds and ends.
From the chroot, running
Code:
cd /
du -sh $(ls  | sed -e :a -e '$!N;s/\n/ /;ta') | sort -h
will find the directory with too much content. My results on the aforementioned new install were:
Quote:
8.7M bin
20M boot
8.0K dev
4.0K error
71M etc
4.0K home
0 lib
5.7M lib32
78M lib64
16K lost+found
4.0K media
8.0K mnt
311M opt
4.0K proc
1.6M root
32K run
10M sbin
4.0K sys
20K tmp
6.6G usr
127M var
If you find a bloated directory, cd to it, run
Code:
du -sh $(ls  | sed -e :a -e '$!N;s/\n/ /;ta') | sort -h
to look for bloated subdirectory.


OK. This is interesting.

Code:
 / # du -sh $(ls | sed -e :a -e '$!N;s/\n/ /;ta') | sort -h
du: cannot access ‘proc/2389/task/2389/fd/4’: No such file or directory
du: cannot access ‘proc/2389/task/2389/fdinfo/4’: No such file or directory
du: cannot access ‘proc/2389/fd/4’: No such file or directory
du: cannot access ‘proc/2389/fdinfo/4’: No such file or directory
0   lib
0   proc
0   sys
4.0K   media
4.0K   opt
12K   tmp
16K   lost+found
16K   root
28K   mnt
28K   run
676K   dev
3.4M   etc
5.7M   lib32
7.8M   bin
11M   sbin
21M   boot
53M   lib64
127M   var
3.9G   usr
16G   home


So it looks like var is ony using 127MB's so why the error?

Also when I drill down into home, which is listed as 16GB's, I get the following, which indicates only a couple hundred K being used. Am I missing something?

Code:
# du -sh $(ls | sed -e :a -e '$!N;s/\n/ /;ta') | sort -h4.0K   lost+found
348K   **** (edited for privacy)

Also when I do env-update to chroot I am getting space warnings.

Code:
# env-update

have you intentionally added anything to /home?
if not, from the chroot:
Code:
ls /home
will give you an idea of what is there. If of no known value
Code:
rm -rf /home/*
will clear it out and make 16G available.
once a partition has filled, writing to any directory totally housed in that partition will fail with space warnings.

OK. So I started from scratch, increased the directory to 30 GB, and still get space errors.

For example, I have a 700GB home directory and I tried to copy 100GB of data to it and it failed due to "lack of space" at about 27GB. This kept me from emerging anything else. When I deleted the data in home then the error stops but clearly this seems to show that the system doesn't understand the size of the directories even though gpart and vgscan are showing them correctly.

After much trial and tribulation I have a working Gentoo system on my laptop. Yahoo!!! I still have "stuff" I have to work out in terms of configuring my specific hardware but it will happen. I just wanted to thank everyone for their help. Especially The Doctor, your assistance was invaluable. Thanks.
