84 swift 1.39 <title>The Gentoo Installation CDs</title>
85 swift 1.1 <subsection>
86 swift 1.35 <title>Introduction</title>
87 swift 1.1 <body>
88    
89     <p>
90 swift 1.39 The <e>Gentoo Installation CDs</e> are bootable CDs which contain a
91 swift 1.1 self-sustained Gentoo environment. They allow you to boot Linux from the CD.
92     During the boot process your hardware is detected and the appropriate drivers
93     are loaded. They are maintained by Gentoo developers.
94     </p>
95    
96     <p>
97 swift 1.39 All Installation CDs allow you to boot, set up networking, initialize your
98 swift 1.35 partitions and start installing Gentoo from the Internet. We currently provide
99 swift 1.39 two Installation CDs which are equaly suitable to install Gentoo from, as long
100     as you're planning on performing an Internet-based installation using the
101     latest version of the available packages.
102 swift 1.35 </p>
103    
104     <p>
105 swift 1.36 If you wish to install Gentoo without a working Internet connection, please use
106 swift 1.35 the installation instructions described in the <uri
107 swift 1.45 link="2005.1/index.xml">Gentoo 2005.1 Handbooks</uri>.
108 swift 1.1 </p>
109    
110     <p>
111 swift 1.39 The two Installation CDs that we currently provide are:
112 swift 1.35 </p>
113    
114     <ul>
115     <li>
116 swift 1.39 The Gentoo <e>Minimal</e> Installation CD, a small, no-nonsense, bootable
117     CD which sole purpose is to boot the system, prepare the networking and
118     continue with the Gentoo installation.
119 swift 1.35 </li>
120     <li>
121 swift 1.39 The Gentoo <e>Universal</e> Installation CD, a bootable CD with the same
122 swift 1.49 abilities as the Minimal Installation CD. Additionally, it contains
123     several stage3 tarballs (optimized for the individual subarchitectures).
124 swift 1.35 </li>
125     </ul>
126    
127     <p>
128 swift 1.39 To help you decide which Installation CD you need, we have written down the
129     major advantages and disadvantages of each Installation CD.

138     <p>
139 swift 1.45 The Minimal Installation CD is called <c>install-ppc-minimal-2005.1.iso</c> and
140 swift 1.39 takes up only 52 MB of diskspace. You can use this Installation CD to install
141     Gentoo, but always with a working Internet connection only.

169 swift 1.45 The Universal Installation CD is called <c>install-ppc-universal-2005.1.iso</c>
170 swift 1.39 and consumes the entire surface of a 650 MB CD. You can use this Installation
171     CD to install Gentoo, and you can even use it to install Gentoo without a
172     working internet connection, just in case you want to bring Gentoo to another
173     PC than the one you are currently installing Gentoo on :)

200     <p>
201 neysx 1.50 You might find a <e>Package CD</e> on one of our mirrors. This CD is not an
202     Installation CD but an additional resource that can be exploited during a
203     networkless installation. It contains prebuilt packages (also known as the GRP
204     set) that allow you to easily and quickly install additional applications (such
205     as OpenOffice.org, KDE, GNOME, ...) immediately after the networkless Gentoo
206     installation.
207 swift 1.35 </p>
208    
209 swift 1.48 <p>
210     If you intend to use the Packages CD to quickly install additional software,
211 swift 1.49 make sure that you use the same subarchitecture as the stage3 tarball you use.

217     <title>The Stage3 Tarball</title>
218     <body>
219    
220     <p>
221     A stage3 tarball is an archive containing a minimal Gentoo environment, suitable
222     to continue the Gentoo installation using the instructions in this manual.
223     Previously, the Gentoo Handbook described the installation using one of three
224     stage tarballs. While Gentoo still offers stage1 and stage2 tarballs, the
225     official installation method uses the stage3 tarball. If you are interested in
226     performing a Gentoo installation using a stage1 or stage2 tarball, please read
227     the Gentoo FAQ on <uri link="/doc/en/faq.xml#stage12">How do I Install Gentoo
228     Using a Stage1 or Stage2 Tarball?</uri>

237 swift 1.1 <subsection>
238 swift 1.39 <title>Downloading and Burning the Installation CDs</title>
239 swift 1.1 <body>
240    
241     <p>
242 swift 1.39 You have chosen to use a Gentoo Installation CD. We'll first start by
243     downloading and burning the chosen Installation CD. We previously discussed
244     the several available Installation CDs, but where can you find them?
245 swift 1.35 </p>
246    
247     <p>
248 swift 1.39 You can download any of the Installation CDs (and, if you want to, a Packages
249     CD as well) from one of our <uri link="/main/en/mirrors.xml">mirrors</uri>. The
250 swift 1.45 Installation CDs are located in the <path>releases/ppc/2005.1/installcd</path>
251 swift 1.39 directory.
252 swift 1.1 </p>
253    
254     <p>
255 neysx 1.50 Inside that directory you'll find ISO-files. Those are full CD images which you
256     can write on a CD-R.
257 swift 1.1 </p>
258    
259     <p>
260     In case you wonder if your downloaded file is corrupted or not, you can
261     check its MD5 checksum and compare it with the MD5 checksum we provide (such as
262 swift 1.45 <path>install-ppc-minimal-2005.1.iso.md5</path>). You can check the MD5 checksum
263     with the <c>md5sum</c> tool under Linux/Unix or
264     <uri link="http://www.etree.org/md5com.html">md5sum</uri> for Windows. If
265     <c>md5sum</c> is not available on Mac OS X, see the
266     <uri link="/doc/en/gentoo-ppc-faq.xml#doc_chap1">Gentoo PPC FAQ</uri> for help.
267 swift 1.1 </p>
268    
269     <p>
270 swift 1.35 Another way to check the validity of the downloaded file is to use GnuPG to
271     verify the cryptographic signature that we provide (the file ending with
272     <path>.asc</path>). Download the signature file and obtain the public key:
273 swift 1.12 </p>
274    
275 swift 1.35 <pre caption="Obtaining the public key">
276     $ <i>gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 17072058</i>
277 swift 1.12 </pre>
278    
279     <p>
280 swift 1.35 Now verify the signature:
281 swift 1.12 </p>
282    
283 swift 1.35 <pre caption="Verify the cryptographic signature">
284     $ <i>gpg --verify &lt;signature file&gt; &lt;downloaded iso&gt;</i>
285     </pre>
286 swift 1.12
287     <p>
288 swift 1.1 To burn the downloaded ISO(s), you have to select raw-burning. How you
289 swift 1.35 do this is highly program-dependent. We will discuss <c>cdrecord</c> and
290     <c>K3B</c> here; more information can be found in our <uri
291     link="/doc/en/faq.xml#isoburning">Gentoo FAQ</uri>.
292 swift 1.1 </p>
293    
294     <ul>
295     <li>
296 swift 1.35 With cdrecord, you simply type <c>cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc &lt;downloaded iso
297     file&gt;</c> (replace <path>/dev/hdc</path> with your CD-RW drive's
298 swift 1.37 device path).
299 swift 1.1 </li>
300     <li>
301 swift 1.35 With K3B, select <c>Tools</c> &gt; <c>CD</c> &gt; <c>Burn Image</c>. Then
302 bennyc 1.6 you can locate your ISO file within the 'Image to Burn' area. Finally click
303 swift 1.3 <c>Start</c>.

310 josejx 1.41 <title>Default: Booting the Installation CD with Yaboot</title>
311 swift 1.1 <body>
312    
313     <p>
314 swift 1.39 On NewWorld machines place the Installation CD in the CD-ROM and reboot the
315     system. When the system-start-bell sounds, simply hold down the 'C' until the
316     CD loads.
317 dertobi123 1.17 </p>
318    
319     <p>
320 swift 1.39 After the Installation CD loaded, you will be greeted by a friendly welcome
321     message and a <e>boot:</e> prompt at the bottom of the screen.
322 swift 1.1 </p>
323    
324     <p>
325     At this prompt you are able to select a kernel for the subarchitecture you use.
326 dertobi123 1.17 We provide <c>G3</c>, <c>G4</c> and <c>G5</c>. All kernels are built with
327     support for multiple CPUs, but they will boot on single processor machines as
328     well.
329 swift 1.1 </p>
330    
331     <p>
332     You are also able to tweak some kernel options at this prompt. The following
333 swift 1.39 table lists some of the available boot options you can add:

345     <c>radeonfb</c>, <c>rivafb</c>, <c>atyfb</c>, <c>aty128</c> or
346     <c>ofonly</c>. You can follow this tag with the resolution and refreshrate
347     you want to use. For instance <c>video=radeonfb:1280x1024@75</c>. If you are
348     uncertain what to choose, <c>ofonly</c> will most certainly work.

385 swift 1.7 On the Pegasos simply insert the CD and at the SmartFirmware boot-prompt type
386 swift 1.39 <c>boot cd /boot/menu</c>. This will open a small bootmenu where you can choose
387     between several preconfigured video configs. If you need any special boot
388     options you can append them to the command-line. For instance <c>boot cd
389     /boot/pegasos video=radeonfb:1280x1024@75 mem=256M</c>. The complete list of
390     kernel appends (in case something goes wrong and you need it) is preconfigured
391     in the kernel with <c>console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0 init=/linuxrc

399     <title>Alternative: Booting the Installation CD with BootX</title>
400     <body>
401    
402     <p>
403     If you have an OldWorld Mac the bootable portion of the livecd can't be used.
404     The most simple solution is to use MacOS to bootstrap into a Linux environment
405     with a tool called BootX. Boot floppies are being prepared for Macs without
406     MacOS, but they are not available at this time.
407     </p>
408 swift 1.45
409 josejx 1.41 <p>
410     First, download <uri link="http://penguinppc.org/projects/bootx/">BootX</uri>
411     and unpack the archive. Copy the the <c>BootX Extension</c> from the unpacked
412     archive into <c>Extensions Folder</c> and the BootX App Control Panel into
413     <c>Control Panels</c>, both of which are located in your MacOS System Folder.
414 josejx 1.42 Next, create a folder called "Linux Kernels" in your System folder and copy the
415     <c>G3G4</c> kernel from the CD to this folder. Finally, copy <c>G3G4.igz</c>
416     from the Installation CD <path>boot</path> folder into the MacOS
417     <c>System Folder</c>.
418 josejx 1.41 </p>
419 swift 1.45
420 josejx 1.41 <p>
421     To prepare BootX, start the BootX App Control Panel. First select the Options
422     dialog and check <c>Use Specified RAM Disk</c> and select <c>G3G4.igz</c> from
423     your System Folder. Continue back to the initial screen and ensure that the
424     ramdisk size is at least <c>32000</c>. Finally, set the kernel arguments as
425     shown below:
426     </p>
427    
428     <pre caption="BootX kernel arguments">
429     cdroot root=/dev/ram0 init=linuxrc loop=livecd.squashfs looptype=squashfs console=tty0 nodevfs udev
430     </pre>
431 swift 1.45
432 josejx 1.41 <note>
433     The kernel parameters in the yaboot section above are also applicable here.
434     </note>
435 swift 1.45
436 josejx 1.41 <p>
437     Check once more to make sure the settings are correct and then save the
438     configuration. This saves typing just in case it doesn't boot or something is
439     missing. Press the Linux button at the top of the window to boot into the

492 swift 1.39 When the Installation CD boots, it tries to detect all your hardware devices and
493 swift 1.1 loads the appropriate kernel modules to support your hardware. In the
494 dertobi123 1.17 vast majority of cases, it does a very good job. However, in some cases, it may
495     not auto-load the kernel modules you need. If the PCI auto-detection missed some
496     of your system's hardware, you will have to load the appropriate kernel modules
497     manually.

517     If you are an advanced user, you might want to tweak the IDE hard disk

545     If you plan on giving other people access to your installation

562 swift 1.5 To create a user account, we first enter their credentials, followed by
563 swift 1.1 its password. We use <c>useradd</c> and <c>passwd</c> for these tasks.

589     <p>
590     If you want to view the Gentoo Handbook (either from-CD or online) during the
591     installation, make sure you have created a user account (see <uri
592 neysx 1.31 link="#useraccounts">Optional: User Accounts</uri>). Then press <c>Alt-F2</c> to
593 swift 1.20 go to a new terminal and log in.

606     However, it is preferred that you use the online Gentoo Handbook as it will be
607     more recent than the one provided on the CD. You can view it using <c>links2</c>
608     as well, but only after having completed the <e>Configuring your Network</e>

627     <p>
628     If you want to allow other users to access your computer during the
629     Gentoo installation (perhaps because those users are going to help you
630     install Gentoo, or even do it for you), you need to create a user
631     account for them and perhaps even provide them with your root password
632     (<e>only</e> do that <e>if</e> you <b>fully trust</b> that user).
633     </p>
