67 swift 1.14 <title>The Gentoo Installation Approaches</title>
68 swift 1.1 <subsection>
69     <title>Introduction</title>
70     <body>
71    
72     <p>
73 swift 1.14 Gentoo Linux can be installed using one of three <e>stage</e> tarball files.
74     A stage file is a tarball (compressed archive) that contains a minimal
75     environment.
76 swift 1.1 </p>
77    
78     <ul>
79 swift 1.14 <li>
80     A stage1 file contains nothing more than a compiler, Portage (Gentoo's
81     software management system) and a couple of packages on which the compiler
82     or Portage depends.
83     </li>
84     <li>
85     A stage2 file contains a so-called bootstrapped system, a minimal
86     environment from which one can start building all other necessary
87     applications that make a Gentoo environment complete.
88     </li>
89     <li>
90     A stage3 file contains a prebuilt minimal system which is almost fully
91     deployable. It only lacks a few applications where you, the Gentoo user,
92     needs to choose which one you want to install.
93     </li>
94 swift 1.1 </ul>
95    
96     <p>
97 swift 1.14 To help you decide what stage file you want to use, we have written down the
98     major advantages and disadvantages of each stage file.

104 swift 1.14 <title>A Stage1 Approach</title>
105 swift 1.1 <body>
106    
107     <p>
108 swift 1.14 A <e>stage1</e> is used when you want to bootstrap and build the entire system
109     from scratch.
110 swift 1.1 </p>
111    
112     <p>
113 swift 1.24 This approach builds core system packages that are vital to your system and is
114     used by Gentoo developers to prepare the Gentoo release media. It is a great
115     installation method for those who would like to learn more about the inner
116     workings of bootstrapping, toolchains and the like.
117     </p>
118    
119     <p>
120     However, if you do not plan to tweak the bootstrapping instructions in the
121     <path>bootstrap.sh</path> script written by the Gentoo developers, then a
122     stage1 approach has no benefits for you.

164     <title>A Stage2 Approach</title>
165     <body>
166    
167 swift 1.1 <p>
168 swift 1.14 A <e>stage2</e> is used for building the entire system from a bootstrapped
169     "semi-compiled" state.
170 swift 1.1 </p>
171    
172     <p>
173 swift 1.24 When you perform a stage2 installation approach, you will build all system
174     packages (core packages, including toolchain) using your specific <c>USE</c>,
175     <c>CFLAGS</c> and <c>CXXFLAGS</c> settings. Any package build will therefore be
176     optimized to your preference.
177     </p>
178    
179     <p>
180     However, this installation takes some time and if you do not intend to change
181     the <c>CFLAGS</c> and <c>CXXFLAGS</c> settings that we have defined as a "good
182     default", using this approach only makes sense if your <c>USE</c> variable is
183     sufficiently different from the default <c>USE</c> we provide.
184 swift 1.1 </p>

218     <title>A Stage3 Approach</title>
219     <body>
220    
221     <p>
222     A <e>stage3</e> installation contains a basic Gentoo Linux system that has been
223 swift 1.24 built for you. You will only need to build a few packages (such as system
224     logger, networking tools, ...) before you can boot into a base Gentoo
225     installation.
226 swift 1.14 </p>
227    
228 swift 1.1 <p>
229 swift 1.14 Choosing to go with a stage3 allows for the fastest install of Gentoo
230 swift 1.1 Linux, but also means that your base system will have the optimization
231     settings that we chose for you (which to be honest, are good settings
232     and were carefully chosen to enhance performance while maintaining
233 swift 1.14 stability). Stage3 is also required if you want to install Gentoo using
234 swift 1.1 prebuilt packages or without a network connection.
235     </p>

251 swift 1.1 </tr>
252     </table>
253    
254     <p>
255 swift 1.14 You might be interested to know that, if you decide to use different
256     optimization settings after having installed Gentoo, you will be able to
257 swift 1.24 recompile your entire system with the new optimization settings. The same goes
258     for any <c>USE</c> flag changes: Portage is intelligent enough to know what
259     packages need to be rebuild.

267 swift 1.17 <title>The Gentoo Installation CDs</title>
268 swift 1.1 <subsection>
269 swift 1.14 <title>Introduction</title>
270 swift 1.1 <body>
271    
272     <p>
273 swift 1.17 The <e>Gentoo Installation CDs</e> are bootable CDs which contain a
274 swift 1.1 self-sustained Gentoo environment. They allow you to boot Linux from the CD.
275     During the boot process your hardware is detected and the appropriate drivers
276     are loaded. They are maintained by Gentoo developers.
277     </p>
278    
279     <p>
280 swift 1.17 All Installation CDs allow you to boot, set up networking, initialize your
281 swift 1.14 partitions and start installing Gentoo from the Internet. We currently provide
282 swift 1.17 two Installation CDs which are equaly suitable to install Gentoo from, as long
283     as you're planning on performing an Internet-based installation using the
284     latest version of the available packages.
285 swift 1.14 </p>
286    
287     <p>
288 swift 1.15 If you wish to install Gentoo without a working Internet connection, please use
289 swift 1.14 the installation instructions described in the <uri
290 swift 1.21 link="2005.1/index.xml">Gentoo 2005.1 Handbooks</uri>. This is currently not
291 swift 1.14 supported for the PPC64 architecture though.
292 swift 1.1 </p>
293    
294     <p>
295 swift 1.17 For the PowerPC64 architecture, we only supply a <e>Minimal</e> Installation CD,
296 swift 1.14 a small, no-nonsense, bootable CD which sole purpose is to boot the system,
297     prepare the networking and continue with the Gentoo installation.

304 swift 1.1 <body>
305    
306     <p>
307 swift 1.17 The Minimal Installation CD is called
308 swift 1.21 <c>install-ppc64-g5-minimal-2005.1.iso</c> or
309     <c>install-ppc64-ibm-minimal-2005.1.iso</c> and takes up only 350 MB of
310 swift 1.17 diskspace. You can use this Installation CD to install Gentoo, but always with a
311 swift 1.14 working Internet connection only.

344 swift 1.17 <title>Download, Burn and Boot a Gentoo Installation CD</title>
345 swift 1.1 <subsection>
346 swift 1.17 <title>Downloading and Burning the Installation CDs</title>
347 swift 1.1 <body>
348    
349     <p>
350 swift 1.17 You have chosen to use a Gentoo Installation CD. We'll first start by
351     downloading and burning the chosen Installation CD. We previously discussed the
352     several available Installation CDs, but where can you find them?
353 swift 1.14 </p>
354    
355     <p>
356 swift 1.17 You can download any of the Installation CDs (and, if you want to, a Packages
357     CD as well) from one of our <uri link="/main/en/mirrors.xml">mirrors</uri>. The
358 swift 1.21 Installation CDs are located in the <path>releases/ppc64/2005.1/installcd</path>
359 swift 1.17 directory.
360 swift 1.1 </p>
361    
362     <p>
363 swift 1.14 Inside that directory you'll find so-called ISO-files. Those are full CD images
364 swift 1.1 which you can write on a CD-R.
365     </p>
366    
367     <p>
368 swift 1.14 In case you wonder if your downloaded file is corrupted or not, you can
369     check its MD5 checksum and compare it with the MD5 checksum we provide (such as
370 swift 1.21 <path>install-ppc64-g5-minimal-2005.1.iso.md5</path>). You can check the MD5
371 swift 1.1 checksum with the <c>md5sum</c> tool under Linux/Unix or <uri
372     link="http://www.etree.org/md5com.html">md5sum</uri> for Windows.
373     </p>
374    
375     <p>
376 swift 1.14 Another way to check the validity of the downloaded file is to use GnuPG to
377     verify the cryptographic signature that we provide (the file ending with
378     <path>.asc</path>). Download the signature file and obtain the public key:
379 swift 1.1 </p>
380    
381 swift 1.14 <pre caption="Obtaining the public key">
382     $ <i>gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 17072058</i>
383 swift 1.1 </pre>
384    
385     <p>
386 swift 1.14 Now verify the signature:
387 swift 1.1 </p>
388    
389 swift 1.14 <pre caption="Verify the cryptographic signature">
390     $ <i>gpg --verify &lt;signature file&gt; &lt;downloaded iso&gt;</i>
391     </pre>
392 swift 1.1
393     <p>
394     To burn the downloaded ISO(s), you have to select raw-burning. How you
395 swift 1.14 do this is highly program-dependent. We will discuss <c>cdrecord</c> and
396     <c>K3B</c> here; more information can be found in our <uri
397     link="/doc/en/faq.xml#isoburning">Gentoo FAQ</uri>.
398 swift 1.1 </p>
399    
400     <ul>
401     <li>
402 swift 1.14 With cdrecord, you simply type <c>cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc &lt;downloaded iso
403     file&gt;</c> (replace <path>/dev/hdc</path> with your CD-RW drive's
404 swift 1.16 device path).
405 swift 1.1 </li>
406     <li>
407 swift 1.14 With K3B, select <c>Tools</c> &gt; <c>CD</c> &gt; <c>Burn Image</c>. Then
408 swift 1.1 you can locate your ISO file within the 'Image to Burn' area. Finally click
409     <c>Start</c>.
410     </li>
411 swift 1.7 <li>
412     With Mac OS X Panther, launch <c>Disk Utility</c> from
413     <path>Applications/Utilities</path>, select <c>Open</c> from the
414     <c>Images</c> menu, select the mounted disk image in the main window and
415     select <c>Burn</c> in the <c>Images</c> menu.
416     </li>
417     <li>
418     With Mac OS X Jaguar, launch <c>Disk Copy</c> from
419     <path>Applications/Utilities</path>, select <c>Burn Image</c> from the
420     <c>File</c> menu, select the ISO and click the <c>Burn</c> button.
421     </li>
422 swift 1.1 </ul>

558 swift 1.17 When the Installation CD boots, it tries to detect all your hardware devices and
559 swift 1.1 loads the appropriate kernel modules to support your hardware. In the
560 swift 1.17 vast majority of cases, it does a very good job. However, in some cases it may
561     not auto-load the kernel
562 swift 1.1 modules you need. If the PCI auto-detection missed some of your system's
563     hardware, you will have to load the appropriate kernel modules manually.

582     If you are an advanced user, you might want to tweak the IDE hard disk
583     performance using <c>hdparm</c>. With the <c>-tT</c> options you can

610     If you plan on giving other people access to your installation
611     environment or you want to chat using <c>irssi</c> without root privileges (for
612     security reasons), you need to create the necessary user accounts and change
613     the root password.
614     </p>
615    
616     <p>
617     To change the root password, use the <c>passwd</c> utility:

624     </pre>
625    
626     <p>
627     To create a user account, we first enter their credentials, followed by
628     its password. We use <c>useradd</c> and <c>passwd</c> for these tasks.
629     In the next example, we create a user called &quot;john&quot;.

689     If you want to allow other users to access your computer during the
