hello,
while trying to install gentoo from a live DVD,
after loading the keymap these messages appears :

Code:
mkdir: can't create directory '/newroot/mnt/dynamic' : Input/output error
mkdir: can't create directory '/newroot/mnt/static' : Input/output error
mount: mounting /mnt/dynamic on /newroot/mnt/dynamic failed : Input/output error
mount: mounting /mnt/static on /newroot/mnt/static failed : Input/output error
!! Failed to $1; failing back to the shell...

...
/bin/ash: can't access tty; job control turned off


is there any solution ?
is it a hardware problem ?

thank you :)

Hi hrsFaiez,

Is there a reason you are using the live DVD to install Gentoo? The reason I ask is that the latest one (I think) is from 2012.

It is highly recommended here to use the SystemRescueCd found here: http://www.sysresccd.org/SystemRescueCd_Homepage.

The reason for that it has a lot of the latest drivers that are essential if you need to get your wireless networking up for the install. It also has a browser so you can easily get the stage-3 tarball and save it to /mnt/gentoo. After that you can continue the installation just using the terminal.

The only thing I don't like about the SystemRescueCd is the default colors of the terminal, but that's easy enough to change by going to Edit > Preferences > Colors while in the terminal.

Regards,

j_d

Just to spread the word a bit, there is one in the works.
