Xenium Ice chip
160 GB WD HD
no G drive
Formatted drive using the Ice chip disk formatting tool
Did an FTP install to E. Got it working finally in 760p mode. Burned Rexcootx to a CD. Able to SSH in and run Rescootx. I run sh /bin/f-drive. Get Patching Boot loader ...
then this pops up:
Moving over files to F...
This will take about 60 minutes
mv: unable to open `/mnt/fatx/f/swap': Read-only file system
mv: unable to open `/mnt/fatx/f/rootfs': Read-only file system
I have no idea how to fix this. I formatted my E drive already and did a new install to help fix the problem. I have googled and searched 2 forums for a similar problem and found nothing. I am somewhat familar with Linux and know that there is something wrong with the file permissions. I have tried moving e to f by putting the swap and roofts in F manually in addition to being on e. Aslo by having no Gentoox files on F and trying it that way. Still no luck. Formatting F is not an option.
I read about doing the magic f-drive. Should I blow away this install again and try magic instead? Are there any commands that I can run to fix the file permissions? Thanks
A place to ask all newbie questions and not get flamed, though you will get beaten down if you post a newbieish question outside of these walls.
