Would love to get this up and running for a lot of reasons, but it's not happening at the moment.
Here's the story:
Each time on install, I've configured the settings and got everything ready but the script fails when it comes to formatting with the above error. I've used both the mini install and the live dvd, both of which run fine and have both matching md5sums and verified data when burned (at the slowest speed... I also now have a large collection of coasters). This is the 3.3 64 bit version.
The same thing happens both with the text installer and the GUI, whether the live distro is run or not, and with both the updated installer and the one that comes on the image. I've also tried running the install script from a console (as sabayonuser and root) but unfortunately got no diagnostic messages and the same fault both times. The hard drive is mounted on the nForce SATA port rather than the other one (I forget what this is but it shouldn't matter as it's not used at all anyway).
Hardware as follows:
Athlon 64 3400 (Venice core)
DFI LanParty UT NF3 250GB
2x Raptor 37gb SATA (on the nForce ports)
1x IDE DVD R/W (Think it's a pioneer, but this works fine anyway)
1x Maxtor 160gb IDE drive
I've messed with the boot priorities and get the same error whether the IDE drive is passed first, or either of the SATA's, and have ensured that all partitions are unmounted before the script was run (at least I ran umount /dev/sdb* as root, which seemed to work) but this didn't help either. I'm wanting to install to /dev/sdb 'cos sda has 64studio on at the moment and the ide drive is full of windows and games, so I haven't tried any of the other drives. I do know that sdb is sound though, it's been partitioned, formatted and fsck'd under 64studio and come up clean.
Oh, the partitions are as follows:
/dev/sdb1 /boot ext2 1gb
/dev/sdb2 / ext3 10gb
/dev/sdb3 /home ext3 16gb
Any help would be a godsend, please let me know if I can provide any more information.
