Hello,

I have 3x 2TB WD Red hard drives and one 250GB SSD drive. Now my idea was to make a fresh install of Gentoo (since it's new computer), and I would like to use bcache under btrfs.

Does anyone have any similar experience with installing Gentoo with bcache and btrfs from minimal install CD?

The problem I'm having is that, there is no bcache-tools installed on minimal installation CD. Does anyone know workaround this?

Thanks! :-)

You don't have to use minimal installation CD (https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Installation_alternatives#Installation_from_non-Gentoo_LiveCDs). Most popular alternative is SystemRescueCD (http://www.sysresccd.org), since it's Gentoo-based and the environment is close enough so that you don't have to do anything differently.

After just reading here a little bit http://bcache.evilpiepirate.org/ I'm wondering why you worry abo0ut missing bcache at installation time.
Isn't it possible to add bcache later after Gentoo was already been setup ?
