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
/dev/hda1 37% /mnt/gentoo
/dev/hda4 48% /mnt/gentoo/usr
/dev/hda5 6% /mnt/gentoo/var
/dev/hda6 1% /mnt/gentoo/home

an fdisk of the drive shows

/dev/hda1 0

Moved from Gentoo on Sparc to Duplicate Threads, as an update was posted as a separate topic instead of editing the original post..
