17     Before we start, we first list what hardware requirements you need to
18     successfully install Gentoo on your box. This of course depends on your
19     architecture.

27    
28     <p>
29     Check the following requirements before you continue with the Gentoo
30     installation:
31     </p>
32    
33     <ul>
34     <li>
35     You need at least 1 Gb of free disk space
36     </li>
37     <li>
38     You need at least 300 Mb of memory (RAM + swap)
39     </li>
40     <li>
41     For the <e>PowerPC64 architecture</e>, you can install Gentoo/PPC64 on
42     machines having a PowerPC64 microprocessor, including IBM RS/6000s,
43     Power Macintosh G5 systems, IBM pSeries (and soon IBM iSeries) boxen.
44     For a full list go to <uri>http://www.linuxppc64.org/hardware.shtml</uri>.

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

82     <title>The Three Stages</title>
83     <body>
84    
85     <p>
86     Gentoo Linux can be installed using one of three <e>stage</e> tarball files.
87     The one you choose depends on how much of the system you want to compile
88     yourself. The <e>stage1</e> tarball is used when you want to bootstrap and
89     build the entire system from scratch. The <e>stage2</e> tarball is used for
90     building the entire system from a bootstrapped &quot;semi-compiled&quot; state.
91     The <e>stage3</e> tarball already contains a basic Gentoo Linux system that has
92     been built for you. As we will explain later, you can also install
93     Gentoo without compiling anything (except your kernel and some optional
94     packages). If you want this, you have to use a <e>stage3</e> tarball.
95     </p>
96    
97     <p>
98     Now what stage do you have to choose?
99     </p>
100    
101     <p>
102     Starting from a <e>stage1</e> allows you to have total control over the
103     optimization settings and optional build-time functionality that is
104     initially enabled on your system. This makes <e>stage1</e> installs good for
105     power users who know what they are doing. It is also a great
106     installation method for those who would like to know more about the
107     inner workings of Gentoo Linux.
108     </p>
109    
110     <p>
111     A <e>stage1</e> installation can only be performed when you have a working
112     Internet connection.

152    
153     <p>
154     <e>Stage2</e> installs allow you to skip the bootstrap process and doing this
155     is fine if you are happy with the optimization settings that we chose
156     for your particular <e>stage2</e> tarball.
157     </p>
158    
159     <p>
160     A <e>stage2</e> installation can only be performed when you have a working

200    
201     <p>
202     Choosing to go with a <e>stage3</e> allows for the fastest install of Gentoo
203     Linux, but also means that your base system will have the optimization
204     settings that we chose for you (which to be honest, are good settings
205     and were carefully chosen to enhance performance while maintaining
206     stability). <e>stage3</e> is also required if you want to install Gentoo using
207     prebuilt packages or without a network connection.

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

248     <title>Gentoo LiveCDs</title>

250    
251     <p>
252     The <e>Gentoo LiveCDs</e> are bootable CDs which contain a
253     self-sustained Gentoo environment. They allow you to boot Linux from the CD.
254     During the boot process your hardware is detected and the appropriate drivers
255     are loaded. They are maintained by Gentoo developers.
256     </p>
257    
258     <p>
259 swift 1.6 All LiveCDs allow you to boot, set up networking, initialize your
260 swift 1.1 partitions and start installing Gentoo from the Internet. However, some
261     LiveCDs also contain all necessary source code so you are able to install
262     Gentoo without a working network configuration.
263     </p>
264

276     This is a small, no-nonsense, bootable CD which sole purpose is to boot the
277     system, prepare the networking and continue with the Gentoo installation. It
278     does not contain any stages (or, in some cases, a single stage1 file),
279     source code or precompiled packages. For example the ppc variant of this
280     LiveCD can be found in the <path>universal</path> subdirectory and is called
281     <c>install-ppc-minimal-2004.1.iso</c>.

317     <title>Gentoo's Universal LiveCD (not available at the moment for
318     PPC64)</title>
319     <body>
320    
321     <p>
322     Gentoo's Universal LiveCD is a bootable CD suitable to install Gentoo without
323     networking. It contains a stage1 and several stage3 tarballs (optimized for the
324     individual subarchitectures). For example the ppc variant of this CD is called
325     <c>install-ppc-universal-2004.1.iso</c> and can be found in the
326     <path>universal</path> subdirectory.
327     </p>
328    
329     <p>
330     If you take a closer look on our mirrors, you will see
331     that we provide <e>Gentoo Package CDs</e>. This CD (which isn't
332     bootable) only contains precompiled packages and can be used to install software
333     after a succesfull Gentoo Installation. To install Gentoo, you only
334     need the Universal LiveCD, but if you want OpenOffice.org, Mozilla, KDE, GNOME
335     etc. without having to compile every single one of them, you need the Packages
336     CD too. For example the G4 (a subarchitecture of ppc) Packages CD is
337     called <c>packages-g4-2004.1.iso</c> and can be found in the appropriate
338     subdirectory (<path>g4/</path>).
339     </p>
340    
341     <p>
342     You only need the Packages CD if you want to perform a stage3 with GRP
343     installation.

380     <subsection>
381     <title>Downloading and Burning the LiveCDs</title>
382     <body>
383    
384     <p>
385     You have chosen to use a Gentoo LiveCD (if not, then you are reading the
386     wrong section). We'll first start by downloading and burning the chosen
387     LiveCD. We previously discussed the several available LiveCDs, but where can you
388     find them?
389     </p>
390    
391     <p>
392     Visit one of our <uri
393     link="/main/en/mirrors.xml">mirrors</uri> and go to
394     <path>experimental/ppc64/livecd</path>, which is
395     the path where the LiveCD(s) of your choice are located. Inside that
396     directory you'll find so-called ISO-files. Those are full CD images
397     which you can write on a CD-R.
398     </p>
399    
400     <p>
401     In case you wonder if your downloaded file is corrupted or not, you can check
402     its MD5 checksum and compare it with the MD5 checksum we provide (such as
403     <path>install-ppc64-minimal-2004.2.iso.md5</path>). You can check the MD5
404     checksum with the <c>md5sum</c> tool under Linux/Unix or <uri
405     link="http://www.etree.org/md5com.html">md5sum</uri> for Windows.
406     </p>
407    
408     <p>
409     As long as Mac OS X does not support <c>md5sum</c> you have to use the md5
410     capability of <c>openssl</c>.
411     </p>
412    
413     <pre caption="md5sum with the help of openssl">
414     $ <i>openssl md5 /path/to/iso</i>
415     <comment>(This could take some time depending on the size of the ISO and your CPU)</comment>
416     </pre>
417    
418     <p>
419     Now compare this output with the appropriate file found on the server where you
420     downloaded the ISO (the file will end with .md5). If it is the same, the ISO
421     image downloaded correctly. Be sure you have not mounted it (e.g. with Disk
422     Copy) yet!
423     </p>
424    
425     <p>
426     More information is available in our <uri
427     link="/doc/en/gentoo-ppc-faq.xml">Gentoo/PPC FAQ</uri>.
428     </p>
429    
430     <p>
431     To burn the downloaded ISO(s), you have to select raw-burning. How you
432 swift 1.7 do this is highly program-dependent. We will discuss <c>cdrecord</c>,
433     <c>k3b</c> and the MacOS burning possibilities here; more information can
434     be found in our <uri link="/doc/en/faq.xml#isoburning">Gentoo FAQ</uri> and
435     the <uri link="/doc/en/gentoo-ppc-faq.xml">PPC FAQ</uri>.
436 swift 1.1 </p>
437    
438     <ul>
439     <li>
440     With cdrecord, you simply type <c>cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc</c> (replace
441     <path>/dev/hdc</path> with your CD-RW drive's device path) followed
442     by the path to the ISO file :)
443     </li>
444     <li>
445 swift 1.7 With k3b, select <c>Tools</c> &gt; <c>CD</c> &gt; <c>Burn Image</c>. Then
446 swift 1.1 you can locate your ISO file within the 'Image to Burn' area. Finally click
447     <c>Start</c>.
448     </li>
449 swift 1.7 <li>
450     With Mac OS X Panther, launch <c>Disk Utility</c> from
451     <path>Applications/Utilities</path>, select <c>Open</c> from the
452     <c>Images</c> menu, select the mounted disk image in the main window and
453     select <c>Burn</c> in the <c>Images</c> menu.
454     </li>
455     <li>
456     With Mac OS X Jaguar, launch <c>Disk Copy</c> from
457     <path>Applications/Utilities</path>, select <c>Burn Image</c> from the
458     <c>File</c> menu, select the ISO and click the <c>Burn</c> button.

538     For pSeries boxes, sometimes the cds might not autoboot. You might have
539 swift 1.6 to set up your cdrom as a bootable device in the multi-boot menu. (F1 at

544     1) Boot into OF (this is 8 from the serial cons or F8 from a graphics

568     If you are installing Gentoo on a system with a non-US keyboard, use

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

621     <p>
622     If you are an advanced user, you might want to tweak the IDE hard disk
623     performance using <c>hdparm</c>. With the <c>-tT</c> options you can
624     test the performance of your disk (execute it several times to get a
625     more precise impression):

633     To tweak, you can use any of the following examples (or experiment
634     yourself) which use <path>/dev/hda</path> as disk (substitute with your
635     disk):

648    
649     <p>
650     If you plan on giving other people access to your installation
651     environment or you want to chat using <c>irssi</c> without root privileges (for
652     security reasons), you need to create the necessary user accounts and change
653     the root password.
654     </p>
655    
656     <p>
657     To change the root password, use the <c>passwd</c> utility:
658     </p>
659    
660     <pre caption="Changing the root password">
661     # <i>passwd</i>
662     New password: <comment>(Enter your new password)</comment>
663     Re-enter password: <comment>(Re-enter your password)</comment>
664     </pre>
665    
666     <p>
667     To create a user account, we first enter their credentials, followed by
668     its password. We use <c>useradd</c> and <c>passwd</c> for these tasks.
669     In the next example, we create a user called &quot;john&quot;.
670     </p>
671    
672     <pre caption="Creating a user account">
673     # <i>useradd john</i>

680     You can change your user id from root to the newly created user by using

693    
694     <p>
695     If you want to view the Gentoo Handbook (either from-CD or online) during the
696     installation, make sure you have created a user account (see <uri
697     link="#useraccouts">Optional: User Accounts</uri>). Then press <c>Alt-F2</c> to
698     go to a new terminal and log in.
699     </p>
700    
701     <p>
702     If you want to view the documentation on the CD you can immediately run
703     <c>links2</c> to read it:

709    
710     <p>
711     However, it is preferred that you use the online Gentoo Handbook as it will be
712     more recent than the one provided on the CD. You can view it using <c>links2</c>
713     as well, but only after having completed the <e>Configuring your Network</e>
714     chapter (otherwise you won't be able to go on the Internet to view the

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