Man, so far, installing on the ppc has a ton more hoops to jump through...

Ok, I found the stage1 tarball from one of the mirrors. It is in the /mnt/gentoo directory. I'm trying to extract it with the -xvjpf flags....while it is going through during the /dev parts...I see an error or two fly by too fast to read.

It errors out with:

tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

The md5sum checks out just fine. I tried this with a stage2 tarball...it also seems to blow about the same place...

From looking around...there are some posts saying to ignore this...but, that doesn't sound right..any ideas on this here? It is a G3 iBook...18G hd for linux install, 640M ram...

Thanks in advance,

cayenne

That is normal. There used to be a warning in the installation manual about it. If you ignore the error and go on with installation, all should go well.

Me too. Unfortunately I was too lazy to continue installation anyway (to see what results I could pull out). More thanks! :wink:
