Hello,

I am currently installing Gentoo in amd64 versiom on my computer via a USB drive and following thoroughly the handbook (this is my first time with linux). But when I try to chroot with the command "chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash" I get the following message : "'-bash: /usr/bin/chroot: Input/output error".

I tried to check "/var/log/messages" and only get "-bash: /var/log/messages: Permission denied"

Thank you in advance for your help

The first error may be caused by corrupted file, possibly faulty block device.
The second error really is not an error, you apparently are trying to execute a text file.
