After rsync the new setup stuck

Postby Pitmaster » Thu Apr 14 2016 - 20:40:42

Hi, I don't know how to make a correct title out of this but here I am.

I done the "Slackware ARM Installation Guide" from this homepage. I am stuck at the rsync bit. Because the "xz -dc rpi2-slackwarearm-install_13Mar15_fd.img.xz | dd of=/dev/sdc bs=65536" make a partition an write the installer to it made a 75 mb partition. Nothing else fit to it.
Then "rsync -Pavv --delete ." give back "rsync: recv_generator: mkdir "/slackarm/source/k" failed: Read-only file system (30)".

I think it is because there is no space left on the partition? How to make it this way the xz command leaves more space, makes a bigger partition?

Thank's in advance for any help, Pitmaster

I think you are doing it out of order.

Have a re-read of the instructions.
