I have finished a gentoo installation and would like to create a stage 4 or 5 to be able to use it as a restore copy. How do I do it? More than anything to save-time with large packages like llvm. gtk...

Spity,

Boot from a liveCD. Mount your partitions read only at /mnt/gentoo. Just your HDD partitions.
make a tarball of /mnt/gentoo.

You may want to look at FEATURES="buildpkg".

Spity,

The commands vary from install to install. The handbook mounting partitions is a guide. I would have posted a link but I can't reach the Wiki right now.
Do not make filesystems, Do not mount /proc /sys or /dev Just mount your HDD partitions.

The tar command will be something like
Code:
tar cf </somewhere/there/is/space.tar> /mnt/gentoo

Adding the compression of your choice is left as an exercise for the reader.

The steps for creating your own stage4 have been posted to the forums several times.

You put the commands together and post them here before you actually do it.
They will not be new to you, except the final tar.

tar and mount are both basic commands. One must have clear idea what he/she is doing, that's all. Posting detailed commands for someone to follow them blindly is not doing any good IMHO.
