This should be simple but it is driving me nuts. I restarted b/c I was having problems with installing yaboot but now I reboot with the cd and I can't mount /dev/hda2 back to the root file system. I have mounted changed /mnt/gentoo to root but can not use emerge. This is my error:


Code:
(chroot) livecd / # emerge yaboot
Calculating dependencies... done!
>>> Emerging (1 of 1) sys-boot/yaboot-1.3.13-r1 to /
>>> checking ebuild checksums ;-)
>>> checking auxfile checksums ;-)
>>> checking miscfile checksums ;-)
>>> checking yaboot-1.3.13.tar.gz ;-)
>>> Unpacking source...
>>> Unpacking yaboot-1.3.13.tar.gz to /var/tmp/portage/yaboot-1.3.13-r1/work
touch: setting times of `/var/tmp/portage/yaboot-1.3.13-r1/.unpacked': Function not implemented

!!! ERROR: sys-boot/yaboot-1.3.13-r1 failed.
Call stack:

  ebuild.sh, line 712:   Called die

!!! IO Failure -- Failed 'touch .unpacked' in /var/tmp/portage/yaboot-1.3.13-r1
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, and the call stack if relevant.

(chroot) livecd / #


This should be simple i have been following the guide word for word but could not find an answer. Hope someone could help.

You don't have to mount the bootstrap partition. I think this is your problem. :)

this error i have got many times after new install and while in chroot.
you must mount proc and dev as before. then this trouble will go.
