20     <p>
21     Before we start, we first list what hardware requirements you need to
22     successfully install Gentoo on your box. This of course depends on your
23     architecture.

30     <body>
31    
32     <p>
33     Check the following requirements before you continue with the Gentoo
34     installation:
35     </p>
36    
37     <ul>
38     <li>
39     You need at least 1 Gb of free disk space
40     </li>
41     <li>
42     You need at least 300 Mb of memory (RAM + swap)
43     </li>
44     <li>
45     For the <e>PowerPC64 architecture</e>, you can install Gentoo/PPC64 on
46     machines having a PowerPC64 microprocessor, including IBM RS/6000s,
47     Power Macintosh G5 systems, IBM pSeries (and soon IBM iSeries) boxen.
48     For a full list go to <uri>http://www.linuxppc64.org/hardware.shtml</uri>.

61     <p>
62     Still interested in trying out Gentoo? Well, then it is now time to
63     choose the installation medium you want to use. Yes, you have the
64     choice, no, they are not all equal, and yes, the result is always the same: a
65     Gentoo base system.
66     </p>
67    
68     <p>
69     The installation media we will describe are:
70     </p>
71    
72     <ul>
73     <li>Gentoo's Minimal LiveCD for Apple's G5</li>
74     <li>Gentoo's Minimal LiveCD for IBM pSeries RS/6000</li>
75     </ul>
76    
77     <p>
78     As you can see there are no Universal CDs at the moment, but they will
79     follow. The consequence of this is that you have to download the stages
80     (see next paragraph) separately.

86     <title>The Three Stages</title>
87     <body>
88    
89     <p>
90     Gentoo Linux can be installed using one of three <e>stage</e> tarball files.
91     The one you choose depends on how much of the system you want to compile
92     yourself. The <e>stage1</e> tarball is used when you want to bootstrap and
93     build the entire system from scratch. The <e>stage2</e> tarball is used for
94     building the entire system from a bootstrapped &quot;semi-compiled&quot; state.
95     The <e>stage3</e> tarball already contains a basic Gentoo Linux system that has
96     been built for you. As we will explain later, you can also install
97     Gentoo without compiling anything (except your kernel and some optional
98     packages). If you want this, you have to use a <e>stage3</e> tarball.
99     </p>
100    
101     <p>
102     Now what stage do you have to choose?
103     </p>
104    
105     <p>
106     Starting from a <e>stage1</e> allows you to have total control over the
107     optimization settings and optional build-time functionality that is
108     initially enabled on your system. This makes <e>stage1</e> installs good for
109     power users who know what they are doing. It is also a great
110     installation method for those who would like to know more about the
111     inner workings of Gentoo Linux.
112     </p>
113    
114     <p>
115     A <e>stage1</e> installation can only be performed when you have a working
116     Internet connection.
117     </p>

156    
157     <p>
158     <e>Stage2</e> installs allow you to skip the bootstrap process and doing this
159     is fine if you are happy with the optimization settings that we chose
160     for your particular <e>stage2</e> tarball.
161     </p>
162    
163     <p>
164     A <e>stage2</e> installation can only be performed when you have a working
165     Internet connection.

204    
205     <p>
206     Choosing to go with a <e>stage3</e> allows for the fastest install of Gentoo
207     Linux, but also means that your base system will have the optimization
208     settings that we chose for you (which to be honest, are good settings
209     and were carefully chosen to enhance performance while maintaining
210     stability). <e>stage3</e> is also required if you want to install Gentoo using
211     prebuilt packages or without a network connection.
212     </p>

234     </tr>
235     </table>
236    
237     <p>
238     Write down (or remember) what stage you want to use. You need this later when
239     you decide what LiveCD (or other installation medium) you want to use. You might
240     be interested to know that, if you decide to use different optimization settings
241     after having installed Gentoo, you will be able to recompile your entire system
242     with the new optimization settings.
243     </p>
244

246     Now take a look at the available installation media.

252     <title>Gentoo LiveCDs</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 swift 1.6 All LiveCDs allow you to boot, set up networking, initialize your
264 swift 1.1 partitions and start installing Gentoo from the Internet. However, some
265     LiveCDs also contain all necessary source code so you are able to install
266     Gentoo without a working network configuration.
267     </p>
268    
269     <p>
270     Now what do these LiveCDs contain?

280     This is a small, no-nonsense, bootable CD which sole purpose is to boot the
281     system, prepare the networking and continue with the Gentoo installation. It
282     does not contain any stages (or, in some cases, a single stage1 file),
283     source code or precompiled packages. For example the ppc variant of this
284     LiveCD can be found in the <path>universal</path> subdirectory and is called
285 swift 1.11 <c>install-ppc-minimal-2004.3.iso</c>.

321     <title>Gentoo's Universal LiveCD (not available at the moment for
322     PPC64)</title>
323     <body>
324    
325     <p>
326     Gentoo's Universal LiveCD is a bootable CD suitable to install Gentoo without
327     networking. It contains a stage1 and several stage3 tarballs (optimized for the
328     individual subarchitectures). For example the ppc variant of this CD is called
329 swift 1.11 <c>install-ppc-universal-2004.3.iso</c> and can be found in the
330 swift 1.1 <path>universal</path> subdirectory.
331     </p>
332    
333     <p>
334     If you take a closer look on our mirrors, you will see
335     that we provide <e>Gentoo Package CDs</e>. This CD (which isn't
336     bootable) only contains precompiled packages and can be used to install software
337     after a succesfull Gentoo Installation. To install Gentoo, you only
338     need the Universal LiveCD, but if you want OpenOffice.org, Mozilla, KDE, GNOME
339     etc. without having to compile every single one of them, you need the Packages
340     CD too. For example the G4 (a subarchitecture of ppc) Packages CD is
341 swift 1.11 called <c>packages-g4-2004.3.iso</c> and can be found in the appropriate
342 swift 1.1 subdirectory (<path>g4/</path>).
343     </p>
344    
345     <p>
346     You only need the Packages CD if you want to perform a stage3 with GRP
347     installation.

383     <title>Download, Burn and Boot a Gentoo LiveCD</title>
384     <subsection>
385     <title>Downloading and Burning the LiveCDs</title>
386     <body>
387    
388     <p>
389     You have chosen to use a Gentoo LiveCD (if not, then you are reading the
390     wrong section). We'll first start by downloading and burning the chosen
391     LiveCD. We previously discussed the several available LiveCDs, but where can you
392     find them?
393     </p>
394    
395     <p>
396     Visit one of our <uri
397     link="/main/en/mirrors.xml">mirrors</uri> and go to
398     <path>experimental/ppc64/livecd</path>, which is
399     the path where the LiveCD(s) of your choice are located. Inside that
400     directory you'll find so-called ISO-files. Those are full CD images
401     which you can write on a CD-R.
402     </p>
403    
404     <p>
405     In case you wonder if your downloaded file is corrupted or not, you can check
406     its MD5 checksum and compare it with the MD5 checksum we provide (such as
407 swift 1.11 <path>install-ppc64-minimal-2004.3.iso.md5</path>). You can check the MD5
408 swift 1.1 checksum with the <c>md5sum</c> tool under Linux/Unix or <uri
409     link="http://www.etree.org/md5com.html">md5sum</uri> for Windows.
410     </p>
411    
412     <p>
413     As long as Mac OS X does not support <c>md5sum</c> you have to use the md5
414     capability of <c>openssl</c>.
415     </p>
416    
417     <pre caption="md5sum with the help of openssl">
418     $ <i>openssl md5 /path/to/iso</i>
419     <comment>(This could take some time depending on the size of the ISO and your CPU)</comment>
420     </pre>
421    
422     <p>
423     Now compare this output with the appropriate file found on the server where you
424     downloaded the ISO (the file will end with .md5). If it is the same, the ISO
425     image downloaded correctly. Be sure you have not mounted it (e.g. with Disk
426     Copy) yet!
427     </p>
428    
429     <p>
430     More information is available in our <uri
431     link="/doc/en/gentoo-ppc-faq.xml">Gentoo/PPC FAQ</uri>.
432     </p>
433    
434     <p>
435     To burn the downloaded ISO(s), you have to select raw-burning. How you
436 swift 1.7 do this is highly program-dependent. We will discuss <c>cdrecord</c>,
437     <c>k3b</c> and the MacOS burning possibilities here; more information can
438     be found in our <uri link="/doc/en/faq.xml#isoburning">Gentoo FAQ</uri> and
439     the <uri link="/doc/en/gentoo-ppc-faq.xml">PPC FAQ</uri>.
440 swift 1.1 </p>
441    
442     <ul>
443     <li>
444     With cdrecord, you simply type <c>cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc</c> (replace
445     <path>/dev/hdc</path> with your CD-RW drive's device path) followed
446     by the path to the ISO file :)
447     </li>
448     <li>
449 swift 1.7 With k3b, select <c>Tools</c> &gt; <c>CD</c> &gt; <c>Burn Image</c>. Then
450 swift 1.1 you can locate your ISO file within the 'Image to Burn' area. Finally click
451     <c>Start</c>.
452     </li>
453 swift 1.7 <li>
454     With Mac OS X Panther, launch <c>Disk Utility</c> from
455     <path>Applications/Utilities</path>, select <c>Open</c> from the
456     <c>Images</c> menu, select the mounted disk image in the main window and
457     select <c>Burn</c> in the <c>Images</c> menu.
458     </li>
459     <li>
460     With Mac OS X Jaguar, launch <c>Disk Copy</c> from
461     <path>Applications/Utilities</path>, select <c>Burn Image</c> from the
462     <c>File</c> menu, select the ISO and click the <c>Burn</c> button.

542     For pSeries boxes, sometimes the cds might not autoboot. You might have
543 swift 1.6 to set up your cdrom as a bootable device in the multi-boot menu. (F1 at
544 swift 1.1 startup) The other option is to jump into OF and do it from there:

546    
547     <p>
548     1) Boot into OF (this is 8 from the serial cons or F8 from a graphics

566     You will be greeted by a root ("#") prompt on the current console. You can also

572     If you are installing Gentoo on a system with a non-US keyboard, use
573     <c>loadkeys</c> to load the keymap for your keyboard. To list the available
574     keymaps, execute <c>ls /usr/share/keymaps/i386</c>.

602     When the Live CD boots, it tries to detect all your hardware devices and
603     loads the appropriate kernel modules to support your hardware. In the
604     vast majority of cases, it does a very good job. However, in some cases (the
605     SPARC LiveCDs don't even do autodetection), it may not auto-load the kernel
606     modules you need. If the PCI auto-detection missed some of your system's
607     hardware, you will have to load the appropriate kernel modules manually.
608     </p>
609    
610     <p>
611     In the next example we try to load the <c>8139too</c> module (support for

625     <p>
626     If you are an advanced user, you might want to tweak the IDE hard disk
627     performance using <c>hdparm</c>. With the <c>-tT</c> options you can
628     test the performance of your disk (execute it several times to get a
629     more precise impression):
630     </p>
631    
632     <pre caption="Testing disk performance">
633     # <i>hdparm -tT /dev/hda</i>
634     </pre>
635    
636     <p>
637     To tweak, you can use any of the following examples (or experiment
638     yourself) which use <path>/dev/hda</path> as disk (substitute with your
639     disk):
640     </p>
641

651     <body>
652    
653     <p>
654     If you plan on giving other people access to your installation
655     environment or you want to chat using <c>irssi</c> without root privileges (for
656     security reasons), you need to create the necessary user accounts and change
657     the root password.
658     </p>
659    
660     <p>
661     To change the root password, use the <c>passwd</c> utility:
662     </p>
663    
664     <pre caption="Changing the root password">
665     # <i>passwd</i>
666     New password: <comment>(Enter your new password)</comment>
667     Re-enter password: <comment>(Re-enter your password)</comment>
668     </pre>
669    
670     <p>
671     To create a user account, we first enter their credentials, followed by
672     its password. We use <c>useradd</c> and <c>passwd</c> for these tasks.
673     In the next example, we create a user called &quot;john&quot;.
674     </p>
675    
676     <pre caption="Creating a user account">
677 swift 1.8 # <i>useradd -m -G users john</i>

680     Re-enter password: <comment>(Re-enter john's password)</comment>
681     </pre>
682    
683     <p>
684     You can change your user id from root to the newly created user by using
685     <c>su</c>:

697    
698     <p>
699     If you want to view the Gentoo Handbook (either from-CD or online) during the
700     installation, make sure you have created a user account (see <uri
701 neysx 1.9 link="#useraccounts">Optional: User Accounts</uri>). Then press <c>Alt-F2</c> to
702 swift 1.2 go to a new terminal and log in.
703     </p>
704    
705     <p>
706     If you want to view the documentation on the CD you can immediately run
707     <c>links2</c> to read it:
708     </p>
709    
710     <pre caption="Viewing the on-CD documentation">
711     # <i>links2 /mnt/cdrom/docs/html/index.html</i>
712     </pre>
713    
714     <p>
715     However, it is preferred that you use the online Gentoo Handbook as it will be
716     more recent than the one provided on the CD. You can view it using <c>links2</c>
717     as well, but only after having completed the <e>Configuring your Network</e>
718     chapter (otherwise you won't be able to go on the Internet to view the
719     document):
720     </p>
721    
722     <pre caption="Viewing the Online Documentation">

735    
736     <p>
737     If you want to allow other users to access your computer during the
738     Gentoo installation (perhaps because those users are going to help you
739     install Gentoo, or even do it for you), you need to create a user
740     account for them and perhaps even provide them with your root password
741     (<e>only</e> do that <e>if</e> you <b>fully trust</b> that user).
742     </p>
743    
744     <p>
745     To fire up the SSH daemon, execute the following command:
746     </p>
747    
748     <pre caption="Starting the SSH daemon">

752     <p>
753 swift 1.6 To be able to use sshd, you first need to set up your networking. Continue with
754 swift 1.1 the chapter on <uri link="?part=1&amp;chap=3">Configuring your Network</uri>.
