No space left on device


Hi,

Slackware is the only other distro I've used with the DIY attitude of Gentoo, so please bear with me if I ask the blatantly obvious :^)
Following the Gentoo Installation Docs, I've had no problems installing until I tried to unpack the Stage 3 Tarball, at which point I recieve the error "Cannot write: No space left on device" about when it gets to /usr/lib/*. I'm trying to put Gentoo on a 16GB partition, so I'm pretty sure it can't run out of space. Thanks.

Are you in the /mnt/gentoo directory? And is that were the stage 3 tarball was downloaded to and extracted from? If not, you're unpacking it from within the live environment. Also, make sure your clean 16Gb partition was mounted successfully as /mnt/gentoo

Code:
cat /etc/mtab

df and mount will help you to determine if the target partition is mounted properly. It likely is not.
