well.. i've checked a lot of forums on this problem and not one has really helped me. I tried asking at the gentoo forums and still really no help at all.
my problem is trying to gentoo to install. i've downloading the x86 livecd and the i686 cds just to try it out. everytime when the cds boot up, i'll get to the screen where it says "type gentoo.. blah.. blah.. blah". so i do that. then it'll get to where everything is detecting, but after it's done detecting the soundcard and stuff, this same error keeps scrolling :
cloop: error -5 uncompressing block 352 65536/65536/28645/0 788950/7918146
end request: I/O, dev f0:00 (cloop), sector 45182
INIT: ld "c1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
i can't seem to get past that. also the box that i'm trying to install it on is an AMD k6/2-400mhz 64mb . i'd be appreciated if someone could help me out, thanks.
