I am installing crunchbang linux (#!) to my eeePC and it is unable to start the disk partitioner. I traced the problem to partman and partman-lvm that states
No volume groups found.
So I have done some snooping, and I can get around that part of the installer (that just hangs) if I can mount my future root partition to /target and then go from there.
However, I'm having a lot of trouble with the
I want to mount /dev/sda1 to /target. /dev/sda1 is ext3.
When I try
mount -t ext3 /dev/sda1 /target it states: mount -t ext3 /dev/sda1 /target/ failed: Invalid argument.
To get a place (/target) I simply did mkdir /target. Perhaps this is not the proper way to do this?
