I hate this install crap!

This is like my 8th attempt at Gentoo on my ibook! Everytime I try to extract a tarbel from the live cd I get this.

tar : ./usr/lib/locale/locale-archive: wrote only 2048 of 10240 bytes
tar: skipping to next header
./usr/lib/libltdl.so.0
./usr/lib/libltdl.a
tar: ./usr/lib/libltdl.a: Wrote only 0 of 10240 bytes
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

I even tried a different tarbel, I have followed the instructions from the handbook to a T! I dont understand Why have instructions to do something when they dont work?

maybe the tar-file on the cd is not okay. did you downloaded the tar-file from the internet?

another issue could be diskspace. do you have enought diskspace on that partition, where you try to extract the tar-file? (i hope you mounted the partitions correctly. i had a friend trying to install gentoo and he did not mount the partitions, instead he extracted everything to memfs)

cheers
