70 <title>The Gentoo Installation Approaches</title>
71 <subsection>
72 <title>Introduction</title>
73 <body>
74
75 <p>
76 Gentoo Linux can be installed using one of three <e>stage</e> tarball files.
77 A stage file is a tarball (compressed archive) that contains a minimal
78 environment.
79 </p>
80
81 <ul>
82 <li>
83 A stage1 file contains nothing more than a compiler, Portage (Gentoo's
84 software management system) and a couple of packages on which the compiler
85 or Portage depends.
86 </li>
87 <li>
88 A stage2 file contains a so-called bootstrapped system, a minimal
89 environment from which one can start building all other necessary
90 applications that make a Gentoo environment complete.
91 </li>
92 <li>
93 A stage3 file contains a prebuilt minimal system which is almost fully
94 deployable. It only lacks a few applications where you, the Gentoo user,
95 needs to choose which one you want to install.
96 </li>
97 </ul>
98
99 <p>
100 To help you decide what stage file you want to use, we have written down the
101 major advantages and disadvantages of each stage file.
102 </p>
103
104 </body>
105 </subsection>
106 <subsection>
107 <title>A Stage1 Approach</title>
108 <body>
109
110 <p>
111 A <e>stage1</e> is used when you want to bootstrap and build the entire system
112 from scratch.
113 </p>
114
115 <p>
116 Starting from a stage1 allows you to have total control over the
117 optimization settings and optional build-time functionality that is
118 initially enabled on your system. This makes <e>stage1</e> installs good for
119 power users who know what they are doing. It is also a great
120 installation method for those who would like to know more about the
121 inner workings of Gentoo Linux.

159 <title>A Stage2 Approach</title>
160 <body>
161
162 <p>
163 A <e>stage2</e> is used for building the entire system from a bootstrapped
164 "semi-compiled" state.
165 </p>
166
167 <p>
168 Stage2 installs allow you to skip the bootstrap process; doing this
169 is fine if you are happy with the optimization settings that we chose
170 for your particular stage2 tarball.

206 <subsection>
207 <title>A Stage3 Approach</title>
208 <body>
209
210 <p>
211 A <e>stage3</e> installation contains a basic Gentoo Linux system that has been
212 built for you. You will only need to build a few packages of which we can't
213 decide for you which one to choose.
214 </p>
215
216 <p>
217 Choosing to go with a stage3 allows for the fastest install of Gentoo
218 Linux, but also means that your base system will have the optimization
219 settings that we chose for you (which to be honest, are good settings
220 and were carefully chosen to enhance performance while maintaining
221 stability). Stage3 is also required if you want to install Gentoo using
222 prebuilt packages or without a network connection.
223 </p>
224
225 <table>
226 <tr>
227 <th>Stage3</th>
228 <th>Pros and Cons</th>
229 </tr>
230 <tr>
231 <th>+</th>
232 <ti>Fastest way to get a Gentoo base system</ti>
233 </tr>
234 <tr>
235 <th>-</th>
236 <ti>You cannot tweak the base system - it's built already</ti>
237 </tr>
238 </table>
239
240 <p>
241 You might be interested to know that, if you decide to use different
242 optimization settings after having installed Gentoo, you will be able to
243 recompile your entire system with the new optimization settings.

250 <title>The Gentoo LiveCDs</title>
251 <subsection>
252 <title>Introduction</title>
253 <body>
254
255 <p>
256 The <e>Gentoo LiveCDs</e> are bootable CDs which contain a
257 self-sustained Gentoo environment. They allow you to boot Linux from the CD.
258 During the boot process your hardware is detected and the appropriate drivers
259 are loaded. They are maintained by Gentoo developers.
260 </p>
261
262 <p>
263 All LiveCDs allow you to boot, set up networking, initialize your
264 partitions and start installing Gentoo from the Internet. We currently provide
265 two LiveCDs which are equaly suitable to install Gentoo from, as long as you're
266 planning on performing an Internet-based installation using the latest version
267 of the available packages.
268 </p>
269
270 <p>
271 If you whish to install Gentoo without a working Internet connection, please use
272 the installation instructions described in the <uri
273 link="2004.3/index.xml">Gentoo 2004.3 Handbooks</uri>.
274 </p>
275
276 <p>
277 The two LiveCDs that we currently provide are:
278 </p>
279
280 <ul>
281 <li>
282 The Gentoo <e>Minimal</e> LiveCD, a small, no-nonsense, bootable CD which
283 sole purpose is to boot the system, prepare the networking and continue with
284 the Gentoo installation.
285 </li>
286 <li>
287 The Gentoo <e>Universal</e> LiveCD, a bootable CD with the same abilities as
288 the Minimal LiveCD. Additionally, it contains a stage1 and several stage3
289 tarballs (optimized for the individual subarchitectures).
290 </li>
291 </ul>
292
293 <p>
294 To help you decide which LiveCD you need, we have written down the major
295 advantages and disadvantages of each LiveCD.

303
304 <p>
305 The Minimal LiveCD is called <c>install-ppc-minimal-2004.3.iso</c> and
306 takes up only 52 MB of diskspace. You can use this LiveCD to install Gentoo,
307 but always with a working Internet connection only.

343 consumes the entire surface of a 650 MB CD. You can use this LiveCD to install
344 Gentoo, and you can even use it to install Gentoo without a working internet
345 connection, just in case you want to bring Gentoo to another PC than the one you
346 are currently installing Gentoo on :)

374 You might find a so-called <e>Package CD</e> on one of our mirrors. This CD is
375 no LiveCD but an additional resource that can be exploited during a networkless
376 installation. It contains prebuilt packages (the so-called GRP set) that allows
377 you to easily and quickly install additional applications (such as
378 OpenOffice.org, KDE, GNOME, ...) immediately after the networkless Gentoo
379 installation.

387 <title>Download, Burn and Boot a Gentoo LiveCD</title>
388 <subsection>
389 <title>Downloading and Burning the LiveCDs</title>
390 <body>
391
392 <p>
393 You have chosen to use a Gentoo LiveCD. We'll first start by downloading and
394 burning the chosen LiveCD. We previously discussed the several available
395 LiveCDs, but where can you find them?
396 </p>
397
398 <p>
399 You can download any of the LiveCDs (and, if you want to, a Packages CD as
400 well) from one of our <uri link="/main/en/mirrors.xml">mirrors</uri>. The
401 LiveCDs are located in the <path>releases/ppc/2004.3/livecd</path> directory.
402 </p>
403
404 <p>
405 Inside that directory you'll find so-called ISO-files. Those are full CD images
406 which you can write on a CD-R.
407 </p>
408
409 <p>
410 In case you wonder if your downloaded file is corrupted or not, you can
411 check its MD5 checksum and compare it with the MD5 checksum we provide (such as
412 <path>install-ppc-minimal-2004.3.iso.md5</path>). You can check the MD5 checksum
413 with the <c>md5sum</c> tool under Linux/Unix or <uri
414 link="http://www.etree.org/md5com.html">md5sum</uri> for Windows.
415 </p>
416
417 <p>
418 Another way to check the validity of the downloaded file is to use GnuPG to
419 verify the cryptographic signature that we provide (the file ending with
420 <path>.asc</path>). Download the signature file and obtain the public key:
421 </p>
422
423 <pre caption="Obtaining the public key">
424 $ <i>gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 17072058</i>
425 </pre>
426
427 <p>
428 Now verify the signature:
429 </p>
430
431 <pre caption="Verify the cryptographic signature">
432 $ <i>gpg --verify &lt;signature file&gt; &lt;downloaded iso&gt;</i>
433 </pre>
434
435 <p>
436 To burn the downloaded ISO(s), you have to select raw-burning. How you
437 do this is highly program-dependent. We will discuss <c>cdrecord</c> and
438 <c>K3B</c> here; more information can be found in our <uri
439 link="/doc/en/faq.xml#isoburning">Gentoo FAQ</uri>.
440 </p>
441
442 <ul>
443 <li>
444 With cdrecord, you simply type <c>cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc &lt;downloaded iso
445 file&gt;</c> (replace <path>/dev/hdc</path> with your CD-RW drive's
446 device path) followed by the path to the ISO file :)
447 </li>
448 <li>
449 With K3B, select <c>Tools</c> &gt; <c>CD</c> &gt; <c>Burn Image</c>. Then
450 you can locate your ISO file within the 'Image to Burn' area. Finally click
451 <c>Start</c>.
452 </li>
453 </ul>

457 <subsection>
458 <title>Default: Booting the LiveCD on a Apple/IBM</title>
459 <body>
460
461 <p>
462 On NewWorld machines place the LiveCD in the CD-ROM and reboot the system. When
463 the system-start-bell sounds, simply hold down the 'C' until the CD loads.
464 </p>
465
466 <p>
467 If you have an OldWorld Mac the bootable portion of the livecd can't be used.
468 Instead you need to download <uri
469 link="http://penguinppc.org/projects/bootx/">BootX</uri> and have a working
470 MacOS installed on your system. You need to copy the <c>BootX Extension</c> from
471 the unpacked archive-file into the <c>Extensions Folder</c> and make a new
472 directory called <c>Linux Kernels</c> in the System Folder. In the next step you
473 need to copy the files <c>G3G4kernel</c> and <c>initrd.img.gz</c> from the
474 LiveCD <path>boot</path> folder into the <c>Linux Kernels</c> directory. Then
475 reboot the system and wait for BootX to load. After BootX loaded you still have
476 to set up a few items. In the options dialog you need to check <c>Use Specified
477 RAM Disk</c> and select the <c>initrd.img.gz</c> which you put in the <c>Linux
478 Kernels</c> directory. The ramdisk size should be set to at least <c>32000</c>.
479 Furthermore the kernel argument needs to be set to <c>rw init=/linuxrc
480 cdroot</c>. Eventually you are able to boot the LiveCD when you select Linux on
481 Startup.
482 </p>
483
484 <p>
485 After the LiveCD loaded, you will be greeted by a friendly welcome message and a
486 <e>boot:</e> prompt at the bottom of the screen.
487 </p>
488
489 <p>
490 At this prompt you are able to select a kernel for the subarchitecture you use.
491 We provide <c>G3</c>, <c>G4</c> and <c>G5</c>. All kernels are built with
492 support for multiple CPUs, but they will boot on single processor machines as
493 well.
494 </p>
495
496 <p>
497 You are also able to tweak some kernel options at this prompt. The following
498 table lists the available boot options you can add:
499 </p>

501 <table>

509 This option takes one of the following vendor-specific tags:
510 <c>radeonfb</c>, <c>rivafb</c>, <c>atyfb</c>, <c>aty128</c> or
511 <c>ofonly</c>. You can follow this tag with the resolution and refreshrate
512 you want to use. For instance <c>video=radeonfb:1280x1024@75</c>. If you are
513 uncertain what to choose, <c>ofonly</c> will most certainly work.

607 When the LiveCD boots, it tries to detect all your hardware devices and
608 loads the appropriate kernel modules to support your hardware. In the
609 vast majority of cases, it does a very good job. However, in some cases, it may
610 not auto-load the kernel modules you need. If the PCI auto-detection missed some
611 of your system's hardware, you will have to load the appropriate kernel modules
612 manually.

616 In the next example we try to load the <c>airport</c> module (support for
617 certain kinds of network interfaces):

627 <title>Optional: Tweaking Hard Disk Performance</title>
628 <body>
629
630 <p>
631 If you are an advanced user, you might want to tweak the IDE hard disk
632 performance using <c>hdparm</c>. With the <c>-tT</c> options you can
633 test the performance of your disk (execute it several times to get a
634 more precise impression):
635 </p>
636
637 <pre caption="Testing disk performance">
638 # <i>hdparm -tT /dev/hda</i>
639 </pre>
640
641 <p>
642 To tweak, you can use any of the following examples (or experiment
643 yourself) which use <path>/dev/hda</path> as disk (substitute with your
644 disk):
645 </p>
646
647 <pre caption="Tweaking hard disk performance">
648 <comment>Activate DMA:</comment> # <i>hdparm -d 1 /dev/hda</i>
649 <comment>Activate DMA + Safe Performance-enhancing Options:</comment> # <i>hdparm -d 1 -A 1 -m 16 -u 1 -a 64 /dev/hda</i>

655 <title>Optional: User Accounts</title>
656 <body>
657
658 <p>
659 If you plan on giving other people access to your installation
660 environment or you want to chat using <c>irssi</c> without root privileges (for
661 security reasons), you need to create the necessary user accounts and change
662 the root password.
663 </p>
664
665 <p>
666 To change the root password, use the <c>passwd</c> utility:
667 </p>
668
669 <pre caption="Changing the root password">
670 # <i>passwd</i>
671 New password: <comment>(Enter your new password)</comment>
672 Re-enter password: <comment>(Re-enter your password)</comment>
673 </pre>
674
675 <p>
676 To create a user account, we first enter their credentials, followed by
677 its password. We use <c>useradd</c> and <c>passwd</c> for these tasks.
678 In the next example, we create a user called &quot;john&quot;.
679 </p>
680
681 <pre caption="Creating a user account">
682 # <i>useradd -m -G users john</i>
683 # <i>passwd john</i>
684 New password: <comment>(Enter john's password)</comment>
685 Re-enter password: <comment>(Re-enter john's password)</comment>
686 </pre>
687
688 <p>
689 You can change your user id from root to the newly created user by using
690 <c>su</c>:
691 </p>
692
693 <pre caption="Changing user id">
694 # <i>su - john</i>

700 <title>Optional: Viewing Documentation while Installing</title>
701 <body>
702
703 <p>
704 If you want to view the Gentoo Handbook (either from-CD or online) during the
705 installation, make sure you have created a user account (see <uri
706 link="#useraccounts">Optional: User Accounts</uri>). Then press <c>Alt-F2</c> to
707 go to a new terminal and log in.
708 </p>
709
710 <p>
711 If you want to view the documentation on the CD you can immediately run
712 <c>links2</c> to read it:
713 </p>
714
715 <pre caption="Viewing the on-CD documentation">
716 # <i>links2 /mnt/cdrom/docs/html/index.html</i>
717 </pre>
718
719 <p>
720 However, it is preferred that you use the online Gentoo Handbook as it will be
721 more recent than the one provided on the CD. You can view it using <c>links2</c>
722 as well, but only after having completed the <e>Configuring your Network</e>
723 chapter (otherwise you won't be able to go on the Internet to view the
724 document):
725 </p>
726
727 <pre caption="Viewing the Online Documentation">
728 # <i>links2 http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-ppc.xml</i>
729 </pre>
730
731 <p>
732 You can go back to your original terminal by pressing <c>Alt-F1</c>.

738 <title>Optional: Starting the SSH Daemon</title>
739 <body>
740
741 <p>
742 If you want to allow other users to access your computer during the
743 Gentoo installation (perhaps because those users are going to help you
744 install Gentoo, or even do it for you), you need to create a user
745 account for them and perhaps even provide them with your root password
746 (<e>only</e> do that <e>if</e> you <b>fully trust</b> that user).
747 </p>
748
749 <p>
750 To fire up the SSH daemon, execute the following command:
751 </p>
752
753 <pre caption="Starting the SSH daemon">
754 # <i>/etc/init.d/sshd start</i>
755 </pre>
756
757 <p>
758 To be able to use sshd, you first need to set up your networking. Continue with
759 the chapter on <uri link="?part=1&amp;chap=3">Configuring your Network</uri>.
