Re: Installing pure64 from scratch

I have done this but when I boot, it starts running init scripts and

gets through cron, but then no login comes up! Eventually the runlevel kills itself for lack of having any running programs (?) The interesting thing is that on my Gentoo AMD64 I can only chroot into the debian pure64 when it is still in the folder it extracts into by default. But, when I copy it to my /mnt/debian64 partition, chroot tells me that I can't run /bin/sh because I don't have permissions. Could this be related to why this same partition dies on boot?

How exactly are you copying the files?

First I extract the tarball using tar -xvjf
Then I enter the directory created and copy the directories using cp -r ./* /mnt/debian64
Perhaps there is a permissions preservation problem?
