Please help, I have been trying to get Gentoo installed on my TiBook for months and I'm now officially at my wits end! I gave up and went back to Yellow Dog but I've come back to try again. I had exactly the same problem as what animalssj related on July 6th except that when exiting out of the chroot environment, /mnt gentoo is always busy. So I have to do a forced reboot/shutdown. Which leads to--when I boot from the cd to attempt to resolve whatever the system is unable to find /mnt/gentoo.
This last time yaboot told me that there was an error in yaboot.conf--a newline in quoted strings near line 76. This is my third attempt today! Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!!
Steve

About /mnt/gentoo being busy.
You have to leave the chroot environment and then you have to unmount all the things that are mounted under /mnt/gentoo, i.e. /mnt/gentoo/boot /mnt/gentoo/proc first.
After you've unmounted those it should be no problem to unmount /mnt/gentoo

Ralph, That is one of the things that has me befuddled. I type exit to get out of the chroot env then I can umount gentoo/dev, gentoo/proc but not /mnt/gentoo!

Thanks,
Steve

You will not be able to unmount the partition as long as there are processes accessing it, including your shell. Make sure your current working directory is not /mnt/gentoo.

The proper UNIX way would be to use lsof (lists all open files and the processes that are accessing them), grep for /mnt/gentoo and kill the processes you get, but I'm not sure if it's included on the Live CDs. Otherwise just "ps aux" and look for obvious processes you might want to kill like that second shell you opened on another VT to play around on your new linux partition... :)
