Hi,

Is there a list of packages on Gentoo Install CD/DVD's?

I see there are 3 options for me now:
install-cd
admin-cd
full-dvd

I am asking because I would like to set-up a news system and need a CD/DVD version with wicd package, as in the place when I live I have no option to connect to the Internet by cable (eth0), so the only option is wifi. Unfortunatley I never could not manage with iwconfig, so the only way is wicd. Or maybe is not so difficult iwconfig?

Xywa,

iwconfig has never supported wpa2 and friends. It can only do wep and unencrypted wireless.

Use wpa_supplicant. System Rescue CD is nomally a very good place to start.

Right. I forgot wicd needs X to work, but the good news it's depends on wpa_supplicant. Hope I can manage.

Xywa,

wpa_supplicant does not need wicd to work, nor does it need X.

You know you can use any linux cd to install Gentoo, it doesn't matter if you use Ubuntu's cd to boot up (so you can use wicd or what not) and install Gentoo. None of the source files on any distro's boot cd is used to install. It works the same way if you used systemrescue, gentoo's minimal cd, to even Fedora's live cd.

I have found this:

Warning
When using non-Gentoo installation media, this might not be sufficient. Some distributions make /dev/shm a symbolic link to /run/shm/ which, after the chroot, becomes invalid. Making /dev/shm/ a proper tmpfs mount up front can fix this:
Code:
root #rm /dev/shm && mkdir /dev/shm
root #mount -t tmpfs -o nosuid,nodev,noexec shm /dev/shm

I don't think there's a package list on any of the install CDs, but it's a long time since I looked at one.
Given a current stage 3 file and a portage snapshot if you run "emerge --verbose --fetchonly whatever"
its fairly easy to get the filenames you need from the output. FTP is then your friend ...

That's how I installed Gentoo for a while, anyway, though a network connection makes life a lot easier;
and regular updates with sneakernet are a pain.
