Hi all,

I try to install Gentoo Minimal Installation "install-x86-minimal-<20121213>.iso" in Virtual Box version 4.2.4 with virtual memory 1GB,virtual hard disk 60GB.

I was in the step where i tried to setup my disk. I used the fdisk command and i followed all the instructions but when i typed "w" for save all the changes in my hard disk i got the below alert.
Code:

The partition table has been altered!

Calling ioctl() to re-read partition table.
Syncing disks

I did the same process, (setup disk), two times, for be completely sure with the output,but also i got the same result.

I searched in the forum and i found this post http://forums-lb.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-143073-start-0.html
but does not looks like to be the same with mine. We have same only the first line from the output.

Can anyone knows why i got this message. I appreciate any idea for my own solution.

Thanks!

aia,

Those messages are for information only - there is no error.
Sometimes you get the error ... kernel still uses the old partition table!
Which forces a reboot.

Everything is OK for you - continue with your install.
