Hello Gentoo-com,

I dicided to switch to Gentoo from Ubuntu, because.. there are a lot of reasons.

1. I want to know, and controll, what my system is allowed and able to do
2. I dont't like these trash according to my system, like some kind of apps and stuff, i defintly don't need
3. I want to lern everything about. linux itself and according to my digital enviroment

first of all, I was excited about the start, doing it step by step, build the system.

I've got a problem, i don't have all possibilities, can't burn a cd, and don't have a internetconnection at home.

so i have to create a USB device, i did it by hybridiso, dd, and i was running Gentoo by boot USB, but i didn't want to have this graphic enviroment, and definitly don't want to be i change to must have a desktop, but i tried anyway, second later, i was on KDE, by did nothing, so i was blind, as i was by ubuntu.

Maybe i have to install it by a minimal cd,
is there an other possibility? options by running the gentoo live-usb?

I think, I read some about the minimal cd.iso will not running by UEFI so I can't run it by a USB Device,
could some of you draw my attention to a simple solution,

thanks a lot

truly yours

Laura

Algori,

Welcome to Gentoo.

Start with System Rescue CD on a bootable USB Stick.

You can install and maintain Gentoo using sneakernet.
Since I wrote that in 2006, /etc/make.conf has moved to /etc/portage/make.conf, the rest still looks OK.

-- edit --
That post is only the extra steps you need to make sneakernet work.
You still need to follow the handbook.

You also can compile all system by another OS (like Ubuntu, for example) booted by UEFI.
I installed my Gentoo from Ubuntu booted in UEFI.

systemrescuecd has EFI support and better hardware support, and anyway is gentoo based

hello, i see.

the livedvd supports getting a root prompt by just invoking sudo su - or sudo -i in a terminal.

should work for me, right?

Algori,

That works too but it may not support UEFI.

When doing a chroot from SystemrescueCD do this:

Code:
chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/env -i TERM=$TERM /bin/bash
(env-update)
source /etc/profile
export PS1="(chroot) $PS1"

Not sure if env-update is necessary. Gives a bzip2 error.
