95<title>Optional: Install GRP Packages</title>
96<body>
97
98<impo>
99This part is for GRP users only. Other users should skip this part and continue
100with <uri link="?part=1&amp;chap=12">Where to go from here?</uri>.
101</impo>
102
103<p>
104Now that your system is booted, log on as the user you created (for instance,
105<c>john</c>) and use <c>su -</c> to gain root privileges:
106</p>
107
108<pre caption="Gaining root privileges">
109$ <i>su -</i>
110Password: <comment>(Enter your root password)</comment>
111</pre>
112
113<p>
114Now we need to change the Portage configuration to look for the prebuilt
115binaries from the second CD (Gentoo Packages CD). First mount this CD:
116</p>
117
118<pre caption="Mount the Packages CD">
119<comment>(Put the Gentoo Packages CD in the CD tray)</comment>
120# <i>mount /mnt/cdrom</i>
121</pre>
122
123<p>
124Now configure Portage to use <path>/mnt/cdrom</path> for its prebuilt packages:
125</p>
126
127<pre caption="Configuring Portage to use /mnt/cdrom">
128# <i>ls /mnt/cdrom</i>
129
130<comment>(If there is a /mnt/cdrom/packages directory:)</comment>
131# <i>export PKGDIR="/mnt/cdrom/packages"</i>
132
133<comment>(Otherwise:)</comment>
134# <i>export PKGDIR="/mnt/cdrom"</i>
135</pre>
136
137<p>
138Now install the packages you want. The Packages CD contains several prebuilt
139binaries, for instance KDE:
140</p>
141
142<pre caption="Installing KDE">
143# <i>emerge --usepkg kde</i>
144</pre>
145
146<p>
147Be sure to install the binaries now. When you do an <c>emerge --sync</c> to
148update Portage (as you will learn later), the prebuilt binaries might not match
149against the ebuilds in your updated Portage. You can try to circumvent this by
150using <c>emerge --usepkgonly</c> instead of <c>emerge --usepkg</c>.
151</p>
152
153<p>
154Congratulations, your system is now fully equipped! Continue with <uri
155link="?part=1&amp;chap=12">Where to go from here?</uri> to learn more about
156Gentoo.
