69 swift 1.1 <body>
70    
71     <p>
72 swift 1.30 The <e>Gentoo Installation CDs</e> are bootable CDs which contain a
73 swift 1.1 self-sustained Gentoo environment. They allow you to boot Linux from the CD.
74     During the boot process your hardware is detected and the appropriate drivers
75     are loaded. They are maintained by Gentoo developers.
76     </p>
77    
78     <p>
79 swift 1.30 All Installation CDs allow you to boot, set up networking, initialize your
80 nightmorph 1.50 partitions and start installing Gentoo from the Internet.
81 swift 1.1 </p>
82 nightmorph 1.50 <!--
83     <impo>
84 swift 1.28 If you wish to install Gentoo without a working Internet connection, please use
85 swift 1.26 the installation instructions described in the <uri

91 swift 1.30 The two Installation CDs that we currently provide are:
92 swift 1.26 </p>
93    
94     <ul>
95     <li>
96 swift 1.30 The Gentoo <e>Minimal</e> Installation CD, a small, no-nonsense, bootable CD
97     which sole purpose is to boot the system, prepare the networking and
98     continue with the Gentoo installation.
99 swift 1.26 </li>
100     <li>
101 swift 1.30 The Gentoo <e>Universal</e> Installation CD, a bootable CD with the same
102 swift 1.36 abilities as the Minimal Installation CD. Additionally, it contains
103     several stage3 tarballs (optimized for the individual subarchitectures).
104 swift 1.26 </li>
105     </ul>
106    
107     <p>
108 swift 1.30 To help you decide which Installation CD you need, we have written down the
109     major advantages and disadvantages of each Installation CD.

150 neysx 1.38 The Universal Installation CD is called
151 nightmorph 1.46 <c>install-sparc64-universal-2008.0.iso</c> and uses 295 MB. You can use this
152 neysx 1.38 Installation CD to install Gentoo, and you can even use it to install Gentoo

180    
181     <p>
182 neysx 1.37 You might find a <e>Package CD</e> on one of our mirrors. This CD is not an
183     Installation CD but an additional resource that can be exploited during a
184     networkless installation. It contains prebuilt packages (also known as the GRP
185     set) that allow you to easily and quickly install additional applications
186     (such as OpenOffice.org, KDE, GNOME, ...) immediately after the networkless
187     Gentoo installation.
188 swift 1.26 </p>
189    
190 swift 1.35 <p>
191     If you intend to use the Packages CD to quickly install additional software,
192 swift 1.36 make sure that you use the same subarchitecture as the stage3 tarball you use.

198     <title>The Stage3 Tarball</title>

200    
201     <p>
202     A stage3 tarball is an archive containing a minimal Gentoo environment, suitable
203     to continue the Gentoo installation using the instructions in this manual.
204     Previously, the Gentoo Handbook described the installation using one of three
205     stage tarballs. While Gentoo still offers stage1 and stage2 tarballs, the
206     official installation method uses the stage3 tarball. If you are interested in
207     performing a Gentoo installation using a stage1 or stage2 tarball, please read
208     the Gentoo FAQ on <uri link="/doc/en/faq.xml#stage12">How do I Install Gentoo
209     Using a Stage1 or Stage2 Tarball?</uri>
210 swift 1.35 </p>

243 swift 1.1 <subsection>
244 swift 1.30 <title>Downloading and Burning the Installation CDs</title>
245 swift 1.1 <body>
246    
247     <p>
248 swift 1.30 You have chosen to use a Gentoo Installation CD. We'll first start by
249     downloading and burning the chosen Installation CD. We previously discussed
250     the several available Installation CDs, but where can you find them?
251 swift 1.26 </p>
252    
253     <p>
254 nightmorph 1.50 You can download any of the Installation CDs from one of our <uri
255     link="/main/en/mirrors.xml">mirrors</uri>. The Installation CDs are located in
256     the <path><keyval id="release-dir"/>current-iso/</path> directory.
257 swift 1.1 </p>
258    
259     <p>
260 nightmorph 1.46 Inside that directory you'll find ISO files. Those are full CD images which you
261 neysx 1.37 can write on a CD-R.
262 swift 1.1 </p>
263    
264     <p>
265 nightmorph 1.50 In case you wonder if your downloaded file is corrupted or not, you can check
266 swift 1.55 its SHA-2 checksum and compare it with the SHA-2 checksum we provide (such as
267     <path><keyval id="min-cd-name"/>.DIGESTS</path>). You can check the SHA-2
268     checksum with the <c>sha512sum</c> tool under Linux/Unix or <uri
269 swift 1.57 link="http://www.sinf.gr/en/hashcalc.html">Checksums calculator</uri> for Windows.
270 swift 1.1 </p>
271    
272 swift 1.56 <pre caption="Verifying the SHA-2 checksum">
273     $ <i>sha512sum -c &lt;downloaded iso.DIGESTS&gt;</i>
274     </pre>
275    
276     <note>
277     If you get the message that no properly formatted SHA checksum was found, take a
278     look at the DIGESTS file yourself to see what the supported checksums are.
279     </note>
280    
281 swift 1.1 <p>
282 swift 1.10 Another way to check the validity of the downloaded file is to use GnuPG to
283     verify the cryptographic signature that we provide (the file ending with
284 swift 1.54 <path>.asc</path>). Download the signature file and obtain the public keys whose
285     key ids can be found on the <uri link="/proj/en/releng/index.xml">release
286     engineering project site</uri>.
287 swift 1.10 </p>
288    
289     <pre caption="Obtaining the public key">
290 swift 1.54 <comment>(... Substitute the key ids with those mentioned on the release engineering site ...)</comment>
291 swift 1.52 $ <i>gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys 96D8BF6D 2D182910 17072058</i>
292 swift 1.10 </pre>
293    
294     <p>
295     Now verify the signature:
296     </p>
297    
298 nightmorph 1.50 <pre caption="Verify the files">
299     $ <i>gpg --verify &lt;downloaded iso.DIGESTS.asc&gt;</i>
300 swift 1.56 $ <i>sha512sum -c &lt;downloaded iso.DIGESTS.asc&gt;</i>
301 swift 1.10 </pre>
302    
303     <p>
304 swift 1.1 To burn the downloaded ISO(s), you have to select raw-burning. How you
305 swift 1.11 do this is highly program-dependent. We will discuss <c>cdrecord</c> and
306     <c>K3B</c> here; more information can be found in our <uri
307     link="/doc/en/faq.xml#isoburning">Gentoo FAQ</uri>.
308 swift 1.1 </p>
309    
310     <ul>
311     <li>
312 swift 1.26 With cdrecord, you simply type <c>cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc &lt;downloaded iso
313     file&gt;</c> (replace <path>/dev/hdc</path> with your CD-RW drive's device
314 swift 1.29 path).
315 swift 1.1 </li>
316 swift 1.2 <li>
317 nightmorph 1.45 With K3B, select <c>Tools</c> &gt; <c>Burn CD Image</c>. Then you can locate
318     your ISO file within the 'Image to Burn' area. Finally click <c>Start</c>.

328     <p>
329 swift 1.30 Insert the Gentoo Installation CD in the CD-ROM and boot your system. During
330     startup, press Stop-A to enter OpenBootPROM (OBP). Once you are in the OBP,
331     boot from the CD-ROM:

334 swift 1.30 <pre caption="Booting the Installation CD">
335 swift 1.1 ok <i>boot cdrom</i>
336     </pre>
337    
338     <p>
339 nightmorph 1.43 You will be greeted by the SILO boot manager (on the Installation CD). You can
340 nightmorph 1.46 hit Enter for more help if you want. Type in <c>gentoo</c> and press enter to
341     continue booting the system:

345 nightmorph 1.46 boot: <i>gentoo</i>
346 swift 1.1 </pre>
347

349 swift 1.30 Once the Installation CD is booted, you will be automatically logged on to the
350     system.
351 swift 1.1 </p>
352    
353     <p>
354 nightmorph 1.43 You should have a root ("#") prompt on the current console. You will also find a
