31<p>
32Download a CD from one of our <uri link="/main/en/mirrors.xml">mirrors</uri>.
33You can find the ISOs in
34<path>releases/&lt;architecture&gt;/&lt;release&gt;/installcd</path>. The
35<e>minimal</e> installation cd is only useful for internet-based installations;
36with the <e>universal</e> installation cd you can perform a networkless
37installation as well.
38</p>
39
40<p>
41<uri link="/doc/en/faq.xml#isoburning">Burn</uri> the CD and boot it. Press
42<c>F2</c> at the boot screen to find out what boot options exist. Once booted,
43you need to start the <c>pcmcia</c> init script if you need PCMCIA support.
44</p>
45
46<p>
47The installation cds allow you to start an <c>sshd</c> server, add additional
48users, run <c>irssi</c> (a command-line chat client) and surf the web using
49<c>lynx</c> or <c>links2</c>.

55<title>Network Configuration</title>
56<body>
57
58<p>
59If your network does not work already, you can use <c>net-setup</c> to configure
60your network. You might need to load support for your network card using
61<c>modprobe</c> prior to the configuration. If you have ADSL, use
62<c>adsl-setup</c> and <c>adsl-start</c>. For PPTP support, first edit
63<path>/etc/ppp/chap-secrets</path> and <path>/etc/ppp/options.pptp</path> and
64then use <c>pptp &lt;server&nbsp;ip&gt;</c>.
65</p>
66
67<p>
68For wireless access, use <c>iwconfig</c> to set the wireless parameters and then
69use eiter <c>net-setup</c> again or run <c>ifconfig</c>, <c>dhcpcd</c> and/or
70<c>route</c> manually.
71</p>
72
73<p>
74If you are behind a proxy, do not forget to initialise your system using
75<c>export http_proxy</c>, <c>ftp_proxy</c> and <c>RSYNC_PROXY</c>.

29<p>
30The installation ISOs are on the <uri link=
31"http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors.xml">Gentoo
32Mirrors</uri>. Detailed descriptions of the different CDs are
33available in the <uri link="http://store.gentoo.org">Gentoo
34Store</uri>. CD 1 contains everything you need to install Gentoo Linux
35quickly and without a connection to the Internet. CD 2 is optional and
36contains pre-compiled packages such as KDE, GNOME, OpenOffice,
37Mozilla, Evolution and more.
38</p> 84<p>
39 85Use <c>fdisk</c> or <c>cfdisk</c> to create your partition layout. You need at
86least a swap partition (type 82) and one Linux partition (type 83).
40<p> 87</p>
41Boot from the first Gentoo CD. Press &lt;F1&gt; and/or &lt;F2&gt; to 88
42see what boot options are available. Press &lt;ENTER&gt; at the bootscreen to
43continue with the default kernel. You'll eventually receive a prompt.
44</p> 89<p>
45 90Use <c>mke2fs</c>, <c>mke2fs -j</c>, <c>mkreiserfs</c>, <c>mkfs.xfs</c> and
46<pre caption="Beginning settings"> 91<c>mkfs.jfs</c> to create file systems on your Linux partitions. Initialise your
47# <i>date</i> (Make sure your time and date is correct. If wrong, set it with <i>date MMDDhhmmCCYY</i> ) 92swap partition using <c>mkswap</c> and <c>swapon</c>.
48# <i>modprobe module_name</i> (Optional - Load any necessary modules)
49# <i>net-setup eth0</i> (Configure the network)
50# <i>fdisk /dev/hda</i> (Partition your drive)
51</pre>
52
53<p> 93</p>
54The recommended setup is a 64 meg boot volume with ext2, a swap partition 94
55twice the size of your available RAM, and the rest for your root partition
56using ReiserFS.
57</p> 95<p>
58 96Mount the freshly created file systems on <path>/mnt/gentoo</path>. Create
97directories for the other mount points (like <path>/mnt/gentoo/boot</path>) if
98you need them.
59<p> 99</p>
60Initialise your partitions using <c>mke2fs</c> (Ext2), <c>mke2fs 100
61-j</c> (Ext3), <c>mkreiserfs</c> (ReiserFS), <c>mkfs.xfs</c> (XFS), 101</body>
62<c>mkfs.jfs</c> (JFS) and <c>mkswap</c> (swap partition). For instance: 102</section>
63<c>mke2fs -j /dev/hda3</c>. 103<section>
104<title>Setting Up The Stage</title>
105<body>
106
64</p> 107<p>
65 108First make sure your date is set correctly using <c>date MMDDhhmmYYYY</c>. Next,
109download a stage from one of our <uri link="/main/en/mirrors.xml">mirrors</uri>
110or use the one available on the installation CD
111(<path>/mnt/cdrom/stages</path>). Go to <path>/mnt/gentoo</path> and unpack the
112stage using <c>tar&nbsp;-xvjpf&nbsp;&lt;stage&nbsp;tarball&gt;</c>.
66<p> 113</p>
67Continue by mounting the partitions and extracting the appropriate stage 114
68file.
69</p> 115<p>
70 116Install a Portage snapshot if you are performing a networkless installation: go
71<pre caption="Preparing the Installation"> 117to <path>/mnt/gentoo/usr</path> and run
72(Activate the swap partition) # <i>swapon /dev/hdax</i> 118<c>tar&nbsp;-xvjf&nbsp;/mnt/cdrom/snapshots/&lt;snapshot&gt;</c>. Other users
73(Mount the root partition) # <i>mount /dev/hdax /mnt/gentoo</i> 119can download a portage snapshot and install it likewise.
74(Create the boot mountpoint) # <i>mkdir /mnt/gentoo/boot</i>
75(Mount the boot partition) # <i>mount /dev/hdax /mnt/gentoo/boot</i>
76(Go to the mountpoint) # <i>cd /mnt/gentoo</i>
77(Extract a stage tarball...) # <i>tar -xvjpf /mnt/cdrom/stages/stage?-*.tar.bz2</i>
78(<comment>or</comment> download the latest tarball...) # <i>lynx http://www.gentoo.org/main/en/mirrors.xml</i>
79( ... and extract) # <i>tar -xvjpf stage*</i>
80(Optional: unpack a portage tree) # <i>tar -xvjf /mnt/cdrom/snapshots/portage-*.tar.bz2 -C /mnt/gentoo/usr</i>
81(Optional: copy over distfiles) # <i>cp -R /mnt/cdrom/distfiles /mnt/gentoo/usr/portage/distfiles</i>
82(Select a mirror) # <i>mirrorselect -a -s4 -o &gt;&gt; /mnt/gentoo/etc/make.conf</i>
83(Copy over nameserver information) # <i>cp /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf</i>
84(Mount the proc filesystem) # <i>mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc</i>
85(Chroot into the new environment) # <i>chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash</i>
86(Load the necessary variables) # <i>env-update; source /etc/profile</i>
87(Network-only, non-GRP: update Portage) # <i>emerge sync</i>
88</pre>
89
90<p> 120</p>
91Now we install Gentoo: 121
92</p> 122<p>
93 123Edit <path>/mnt/gentoo/etc/make.conf</path> to suit your needs (USE flag, CFLAGS
94<pre caption = "Installing Gentoo"> 124and CXXFLAGS). You can use the <c>nano</c> editor for this.
95(Change USE, CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS. Stage1 can also change CHOST) # <i>nano -w /etc/make.conf</i>
96(Stage1 only: bootstrap system) # <i>cd /usr/portage; scripts/bootstrap.sh</i>
97(Stage1, Stage2 only: install base system) # <i>emerge system</i>
98</pre>
99
100<p> 125</p>
101Next we set up the necessary information: 126

103 134Mount the <path>/proc</path> file system first and then chroot into your Gentoo
104<pre caption = "Setting up Configuration Files"> 135environment.
105(Set timezone information) # <i>ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/<comment>&lt;path to time zone file&gt;</comment> /etc/localtime</i>
106(Edit fstab file) # <i>nano -w /etc/fstab</i>
107</pre>
108
109<p> 136</p>
110Use the following as a <e>template</e> (don't copy verbatim) for 137
111<path>/etc/fstab</path>: 138<pre caption="Preparing and chrooting">
139# <i>mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc</i>

141# <i>env-update</i> &amp;&amp; <i>source /etc/profile</i>
142</pre>
143
112</p> 144<p>
145If you are not running a networkless installation, issue <c>emerge --sync</c> to
146update your Portage tree.
147</p>
113 148
149<p>
150Next, make sure <path>/etc/make.profile</path> points to the right profile. The
151default one should suffice for most users; subprofiles are available for
152different kernels (like <path>2.4/</path> for 2.4-kernel based profiles). Change
153the profile using <c>ln -sf</c>.
154</p>
155
156<ul>
157 <li>
158 Bootstrapping (not available for networkless installations) happens using
159 <c>scripts/bootstrap.sh</c> in the <path>/usr/portage</path> directory.
160 </li>
161 <li>
162 System installation (not available for networkless installations) happens
163 using <c>emerge&nbsp;-e&nbsp;system</c> (or <c>-N</c> if you haven't
164 altered the default CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS).
165 </li>
166</ul>
167
168<p>
169Stage3 users (except those performing a networkless installation) need to
170upgrade the baselayout package:

181<body>
182
183<p>
184Set your time zone information by changing the <path>/etc/localtime</path>
185symbolic link to the correct location in <path>/usr/share/zoneinfo</path> using
186<c>ln -sf</c>.
187</p>
188
189<p>
190Install a kernel source (<c>gentoo-sources</c> and <c>vanilla-sources</c> are
191available for networkless installations) and configure it using <c>make
192menuconfig</c> followed by <c>make&nbsp;&amp;&amp;make&nbsp;modules_install</c>
193inside <path>/usr/src/linux</path>. Copy the <path>arch/i386/bzImage</path> file
194over to <path>/boot</path>. You can also <c>emerge&nbsp;genkernel</c>
195and use <c>genkernel&nbsp;--udev&nbsp;all</c>.
196</p>
197
198<p>
199Genkernel users will need to <c>emerge&nbsp;coldplug</c> and
200<c>rc-update&nbsp;add&nbsp;coldplug&nbsp;default</c>.

122</pre> 220</pre>
123 221
124<p>
125Continue by installing the Linux kernel:
126</p> 222<p>
127 223Edit <path>/etc/conf.d/hostname</path> and <path>/etc/conf.d/domainname</path>,
128<pre caption="Installing the Kernel"> 224run <c>rc-update&nbsp;add&nbsp;domainname&nbsp;default</c> and edit

135</pre>
136
137<p> 229</p>
138Now install other tools you might want: 230
139</p> 231<p>
140 232Edit <path>/etc/hosts</path>; examples are given below:
141<pre caption = "Install important system tools">
