Please forgive me if I missed any similar posts.


I have a Sun Ultra 5 that I am trying to put Gentoo on.


I am following the directions according to the livecd docs, but when I do the step
# tar xvjf /mnt/gentoo/portage-latest.tar.bz2 -C /mnt/gentoo/usr
I get about a third of the way through the files and starting getting:

portage/directory/filename.ext
tar: portage/directory/filename.ext: Cannot open: No such file or directory
or
portage/directory/subdirectory/
tar: portage/directory/subdirectoryt: Cannot mkdir: No such file or directory

It seems like the disk ran out of space, but it is a WD400BB 40G hd

doing an df shows the following partition usage:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 496M 127M 299M 37% /mnt/gentoo
/dev/hda4 2.0G 909M 1005M 48% /mnt/gentoo/usr
/dev/hda5 1008M 49M 908M 6% /mnt/gentoo/var
/dev/hda6 33G 177M 31G 1% /mnt/gentoo/home

an fdisk of the drive shows

Disk /dev/hda (sun disk label): 16 heads, 63 sectors, 12009 cylinders
Uits = cylinders of 1008 * 512 bytes

Device Flag Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 0 1040 524160 83 Linux native
/dev/hda2 1040 2080 524160 83 Linux native
/dev/hda3 0 77545 39082680 5 Whole disk
/dev/hda4 2080 6241 2097144 83 Linux native
/dev/hda5 6241 8322 2097144 83 Linux native
/dev/hda6 8322 7754 34888392 83 Linux native


* I noticed the number of cylinders changed from 77545 to 12009 after I 'w' fdisk.

Any help wil be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
