626<title>How do I Install Gentoo Using a Stage1 or Stage2 Tarball?</title>
627<body>

630The Gentoo Handbook only describes a Gentoo installation using a stage3 tarball.
631However, Gentoo still provides stage1 and stage2 tarballs. This is for
632development purposes (the Release Engineering team starts from a stage1 tarball
633to obtain a stage3) but shouldn't be used by users: a stage3 tarball can very
634well be used to bootstrap the system. You do need a working Internet connection.
635</p>
636
637<p>
638Bootstrapping means building the toolchain (the C library and compiler) for
639your system after which you install all core system packages. To bootstrap the
640system, perform a stage3 installation. Before you start the chapter on
641<e>Configuring the Kernel</e>, modify the <path>bootstrap.sh</path> script to
642suit your needs and then run it:
643</p>
644
645<pre caption="Bootstrapping the system">
646# <i>cd /usr/portage/scripts</i>
647# <i>vi bootstrap.sh</i>
648
649# <i>./bootstrap.sh</i>
650</pre>
651
652<p>
653Next, rebuild all core system packages with the newly built toolchain. We need
654to rebuild them since the stage3 tarball already offers them:
655</p>
656
657<pre caption="Rebuilding the core system packages">
658# <i>emerge -e system</i>
659</pre>
660
661<p>
662Now you can continue with <e>Configuring the Kernel</e>. You can not use the
663prebuilt GRP packages anymore though.
