69 swift 1.1 <body>
70    
71     <p>
72 swift 1.62 The <e>Minimal Installation CD</e> is a bootable CD which contains a
73     self-sustained Gentoo environment. It allows you to boot Linux from the CD.
74 swift 1.1 During the boot process your hardware is detected and the appropriate drivers
75 swift 1.62 are loaded. The CD is maintained by Gentoo developers and allows you to install
76     Gentoo with an active Internet connection.
77 swift 1.1 </p>
78    
79     <p>
80 nightmorph 1.50 The Minimal Installation CD is called <c><keyval id="min-cd-name"/></c> and
81 swift 1.62 takes up around <keyval id="min-cd-size"/> MB of diskspace.

87     <title>The Stage3 Tarball</title>
88     <body>
89    
90     <p>
91     A stage3 tarball is an archive containing a minimal Gentoo environment, suitable
92     to continue the Gentoo installation using the instructions in this manual.
93     Previously, the Gentoo Handbook described the installation using one of three
94     stage tarballs. While Gentoo still offers stage1 and stage2 tarballs, the
95     official installation method uses the stage3 tarball. If you are interested in
96     performing a Gentoo installation using a stage1 or stage2 tarball, please read
97 swift 1.60 the Gentoo FAQ on <uri link="https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/FAQ#How_do_I_Install_Gentoo_Using_a_Stage1_or_Stage2_Tarball.3F">How

102     Stage3 tarballs can be downloaded from <path><keyval

131 swift 1.30 <title>Download, Burn and Boot a Gentoo Installation CD</title>
132 swift 1.1 <subsection>
133 swift 1.62 <title>Downloading and Burning the Installation CD</title>
134 swift 1.1 <body>
135    
136     <p>
137 swift 1.30 You have chosen to use a Gentoo Installation CD. We'll first start by
138     downloading and burning the chosen Installation CD. We previously discussed
139 swift 1.62 the Installation CD, but where can you find it?
140 swift 1.26 </p>
141    
142     <p>
143 swift 1.62 You can download the Installation CD from one of our <uri
144     link="/main/en/mirrors.xml">mirrors</uri>. The Installation CD is located in
145 nightmorph 1.50 the <path><keyval id="release-dir"/>current-iso/</path> directory.
146 swift 1.1 </p>
147    
148     <p>
149 swift 1.62 Inside that directory you'll find the ISO file. This is a full CD image which you
150 neysx 1.37 can write on a CD-R.
151 swift 1.1 </p>
152    
153     <p>
154 nightmorph 1.50 In case you wonder if your downloaded file is corrupted or not, you can check
155 swift 1.55 its SHA-2 checksum and compare it with the SHA-2 checksum we provide (such as
156     <path><keyval id="min-cd-name"/>.DIGESTS</path>). You can check the SHA-2
157     checksum with the <c>sha512sum</c> tool under Linux/Unix or <uri
158 swift 1.57 link="http://www.sinf.gr/en/hashcalc.html">Checksums calculator</uri> for Windows.
159 swift 1.1 </p>
160    
161 swift 1.61 <note>
162     The tool will attempt to verify the checksums in the list, even if the checksum
163     is made with a different algorithm. Therefore, the output of the command might
164     give both success (for SHA checksums) and failures (for other checksums). At
165     least one OK needs to be provided for each file.
166     </note>
167    
168 swift 1.56 <pre caption="Verifying the SHA-2 checksum">
169     $ <i>sha512sum -c &lt;downloaded iso.DIGESTS&gt;</i>
170     </pre>
171    
172     <note>
173     If you get the message that no properly formatted SHA checksum was found, take a
174     look at the DIGESTS file yourself to see what the supported checksums are.
175     </note>
176    
177 swift 1.1 <p>
178 swift 1.10 Another way to check the validity of the downloaded file is to use GnuPG to
179     verify the cryptographic signature that we provide (the file ending with
180 swift 1.54 <path>.asc</path>). Download the signature file and obtain the public keys whose
181     key ids can be found on the <uri link="/proj/en/releng/index.xml">release
182     engineering project site</uri>.
183 swift 1.10 </p>
184    
185     <pre caption="Obtaining the public key">
186 swift 1.54 <comment>(... Substitute the key ids with those mentioned on the release engineering site ...)</comment>
187 swift 1.52 $ <i>gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys 96D8BF6D 2D182910 17072058</i>
188 swift 1.10 </pre>
189    
190     <p>
191     Now verify the signature:
192     </p>
193    
194 nightmorph 1.50 <pre caption="Verify the files">
195     $ <i>gpg --verify &lt;downloaded iso.DIGESTS.asc&gt;</i>
196 swift 1.56 $ <i>sha512sum -c &lt;downloaded iso.DIGESTS.asc&gt;</i>
197 swift 1.10 </pre>
198    
199     <p>
200 swift 1.1 To burn the downloaded ISO(s), you have to select raw-burning. How you
201 swift 1.11 do this is highly program-dependent. We will discuss <c>cdrecord</c> and
202     <c>K3B</c> here; more information can be found in our <uri
203 swift 1.60 link="https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/FAQ#How_do_I_burn_an_ISO_file.3F">Gentoo FAQ</uri>.
204 swift 1.1 </p>
205    
206     <ul>
207     <li>
208 swift 1.58 With cdrecord, you simply type <c>cdrecord dev=/dev/sr0 &lt;downloaded iso
209     file&gt;</c> (replace <path>/dev/sr0</path> with your CD-RW drive's device
210 swift 1.29 path).
211 swift 1.1 </li>
212 swift 1.2 <li>
213 nightmorph 1.45 With K3B, select <c>Tools</c> &gt; <c>Burn CD Image</c>. Then you can locate
214     your ISO file within the 'Image to Burn' area. Finally click <c>Start</c>.

221 swift 1.30 <title>Booting the Installation CD</title>
222 swift 1.1 <body>
223    
224     <p>
225 swift 1.30 Insert the Gentoo Installation CD in the CD-ROM and boot your system. During
226     startup, press Stop-A to enter OpenBootPROM (OBP). Once you are in the OBP,
227     boot from the CD-ROM:
228 swift 1.1 </p>
229    
230 swift 1.30 <pre caption="Booting the Installation CD">
231 swift 1.1 ok <i>boot cdrom</i>
232     </pre>
233    
234     <p>
235 nightmorph 1.43 You will be greeted by the SILO boot manager (on the Installation CD). You can
236 nightmorph 1.46 hit Enter for more help if you want. Type in <c>gentoo</c> and press enter to
237     continue booting the system:
238 swift 1.1 </p>
239    
240 swift 1.30 <pre caption="Continue booting from the Installation CD">
241 nightmorph 1.46 boot: <i>gentoo</i>
242 swift 1.1 </pre>
243    
244     <p>
245 swift 1.30 Once the Installation CD is booted, you will be automatically logged on to the
246     system.
247 swift 1.1 </p>
248    
249     <p>
250 nightmorph 1.43 You should have a root ("#") prompt on the current console. You will also find a
251     root prompt on the serial console (<path>ttyS0</path>).
252 swift 1.1 </p>
