However, the LiveDVD or any other bootable Linux environment supports getting a root prompt by just invoking sudo handboook – or sudo -i in a terminal.

Hence the name, change root or chroot. However, this is not manageable, hence the definition of these flags in the make. Don’t place experimental settings in this variable; too much optimization can make programs behave bad crash, or even worse, malfunction.

The instructions for parted below contain the necessary pointers to correctly handle this operation. Fire up an editor in this guide we use nano to alter the optimization variables we will discuss hereafter. If you are interested in performing a Gentoo installation using a stage1 or stage2 tarball, please read the Gentoo FAQ on How do I install Gentoo using a stage1 or stage2 tarball?

The reason for this is because every program is different. A swap space allows for the kernel to move memory pages that are not likely to be accessed soon to disk swap or page-outfreeing memory. First of all, I think it should try to keep the “parted” and “fdisk” examples as coherent as possible.


The instructions given below assume that the partition layout being used is MBR. This isn’t always the case though, so results may vary. We made a full Localization guide to help the user guide through this process. Now parted will be used to create the partitions with the following settings:. This is, however, very system dependent. Users of LVM2 will probably want to add –lvm as an argument as well. User programs can use these block devices to interact with the disk without worrying about whether the drives are IDE, SCSI, or something else.

Otherwise the system might show clock skew behavior. But first make sure that the configuration is correct.

As an example, we boot the gentoo kernel, with dopcmcia as a kernel parameter:. But first we install the Gentoo installation files. Selecting a no-multilib tarball to be the base of the system provides a complete bit operating system environment.

Sorry my bad english.

However, make sure to not make any mistakes here – parted executes the changes immediately unlike fdisk which stages them, allowing a user to “undo” his changes before saving or exiting fdisk. Look for the interface in the ifconfig output that has an IP address related to the local network. Some of them are found stable on the amd64 fentoo – it is advised to read up on the filesystems and their support state before selecting a more experimental one for important partitions.


Those who are just starting out with Gentoo should not choose a no-multilib tarball unless it adm64 absolutely handbok. Of course it is far from finished, which is why the installation still has some sections left! Before going to the creation instructions, the first set of sections will describe in more detail how partitioning schemes can be created and mention some common pitfalls. To have a network interface receive this information automatically, use dhcpcd:.

The values need to match, otherwise the downloaded file might be corrupt or the digests file is. This means that the session will change its root most smd64 location that can be accessed from the current installation environment installation CD or other installation medium to the installation system namely the initialized partitions.

Stage files update frequently and are not included on the installation images. Note This is an optional step and not necessary to install Gentoo Linux.

In this case, launch fdisk and toggle the flag using the a key. It is now up to the user to choose which ones to install.
