everything goes fine on the install until i have to do emerge -p system and
emerge system(stage 2), i tried stage 3 but the kernel would never compile so
i thought i'd try stage 2. emerge system will never finish, doesnt get past
the first 5 or so ebuilds.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge -p system
emerge system runs for a while, then it will either just hang, exit to # or
tell me there is an error(and to report it), also error with eth0, cannot
write to BAP(does that while downloading ebuilds).it'll be downloading and
that error message will scroll about 5 times then it will resume(wireless was
fine with windows)
finished emerging ebuilds.
i dont want to go back to windoze :( i just want gentoo to install
what if you `emerge sync` and try again
do you have enough free diskspace and ram ?
do you have activated swap ?
did you try memtest, cpuburn ?
seems to be a hardware issue
Needed info, too old now.
ended up being a hardware failure (motherboard short)
