install problems - no space on device?


Im using 6gigs of space and following a tutorial from bitbenderforums.com (I can't post the URL, since this is my 1st post) to install Slack (my first time)

I chose the full install which is supposed to take ~3gb. I had 6gb allocated and towards the end of the package installation it kept giving "no space on device" error messages. I thought it was because I made so many partitions (as in the tutorial). I tried again with just one root partition and one swap, and still got the same results.

General output of cfdisk:

hda1 ntfs 13555 mb
hda2 linux ext2 6185 mb
hda5 linux swap 263 mb

It worked the third time. The only thing that was different is the second time, during the part where it says "swap space detected", it gave me a warning about "mkswap" and I think I chose to cancel it.

This third time it didn't give me any warning. hmm

Now how to get ethernet configured.. can't connect to the net. I'm on a cable modem, through a router. Knoppix and Mandrake both connected automatically. On netconfig I put DHCP (which is what it is).

the routing table only shows one entry, interface lo

destination loopback, gateway *, genmask 255.0.0.0

i tried to route add -net 192.168.1.1 (router address) and i keep getting SIOCADDRT: Invalid argument
