After I've run into the libtool run error and that got fixed, but got this today:

Why won't you edit the grub ebuilld and change WANT_AUTOMAKE to 1.8? I think that should solve it...

Awsome tutorial, but i think it may be an idea to make 2 versions of the tutorial?

MAybe a one liner version and a line by line version

Line by line is far easer to debug i would say
with the one liner its kinda hard to work out what stoped

Well, here it is :)

NOTE: I edited ali3nx's oneliner a bit, I putted -av (--ask --verbose) to emerge opts so it shows USE flags, what it's going to install, and then asks do you want to proceed...Then I cutted down commands chained with && to a single commands, so newbies might understand it better :P

Allright, enough chit chat, we'll start right now! ;)
Code:

env-update
source /etc/profile

Let's emerge linux26-headers and gcc-config:
Code:

emerge -av --oneshot --nodeps gcc-config
USE="-* build bootstrap" emerge -av linux26-headers

Then the bootstrap process, I added env-update after bootstrap, it doesn't hurt, or does it? ;)
Code:

cd /usr/portage
scripts/bootstrap.sh
env-update && source /etc/profile

After bootstrap is done, we will install the base system, emerging libperl isn't needed, but just to be sure, we will compile it twice before running emerge system:
Code:

emerge -av libperl
emerge -av libperl
emerge -av system

Then we will install system logger, cron and various things:
Code:

emerge -av syslog-ng xinetd grub hotplug coldplug vixie-cron reiserfsprogs reiser4progs sysfsutils udev dhcpcd
emerge -av --nodeps acpid ntp

Then we will add syslog-ng, vixie-cron and some other daemons to default runlevel:
Code:

rc-update add syslog-ng default
rc-update add net.eth0 default
rc-update add vixie-cron default
rc-update add xinetd default
rc-update add sshd default
rc-update add hotplug default
rc-update add coldplug default
rc-update add acpid default

Here's the stage 3 installation instructions broken down in similar fashion. Originally posted on page 17 of this thread. To re-iterate, you'll need a stage 3, not stage 1, tarball for these steps.

Start by telling Gentoo to re-read all environment variables.
Code:

env-update
source /etc/profile

Let's emerge linux26-headers and gcc-config. No need for modified USE flag before emerging linux 2.6 headers. --oneshot option tells Portage not to store the app being emerged into the world file (which is processed when doing a "emerge world").
Code:

emerge -av --oneshot --nodeps gcc-config
emerge -av linux26-headers

The stage 3 "bootstrap": rebuild glibc, binutils and gcc.
Code:

emerge -av --oneshot glibc binutils gcc

After "bootstrap" is done, we will install the base system but ignoring what's already built on the stage 3 (aka emerging with a "empty tree") with the --emptytree option.
Code:

emerge -av --emptytree system

Then we will install system logger, cron and various things.
Code:

emerge -av syslog-ng xinetd grub hotplug coldplug vixie-cron reiserfsprogs reiser4progs sysfsutils udev dhcpcd
emerge -av --nodeps acpid ntp

Then we will add syslog-ng, vixie-cron and some other daemons to default runlevel. The last command, to add ntpd daemon, is not in the original one-liner but i've included it for convenience's sake as it is the very next step in the setup. Ntp-client for me fails on reboot complaining that it can't find the ntp client command so ntpd is suggested as a substitute.
Code:

rc-update add syslog-ng default
rc-update add net.eth0 default
rc-update add vixie-cron default
rc-update add xinetd default
rc-update add sshd default
rc-update add hotplug default
rc-update add coldplug default
rc-update add acpid default
rc-update add ntpd default

Set up ntpd by editing /etc/conf.d/ntpd, /etc/ntp.conf and /etc/conf.d/net as per instructions in the Gentoo Wiki

After much trouble, I finally got my laptop up and running, with reiser4, stage1, nptl and all the other little extras. It appears that the problem I was having revolved around using one of my kernel configs that had smp and ht enabled. Even though I de-selected these items, I still had problems. After starting with a fresh .config, I was rockin and rollin.

I would just like to inform everyone what has transpired with my domain for this tutorials config files. I recently started hosting lxnay's RR4 livecd and it never crossed my mind that my "unlimited" hosting package still had the bandwidth limit applied. My collegue Davetha from exovian left for christmas holidays to toronto and I havent been able to reach him to have the issue rectified. It will be fixed as soon as possible. My aplologies for any inconvieniences. Happy Holidays to all. :oops:

Hey thnx.

You did how ever missed a "s" in the second link, it should be :

make.conf skel file:
http://www.eliteitminds.com/make.conf

And thank you ali3n, your work is much appreciated by me.

First off, many thanks to Ali3nx and everyone else who has contributed.

I'm attempting an amd64 install. I see where a few have posted an interest in how other amd64 installs went, but few have actually said what things to watch out for or change. I haven't begun to bootstrap yet, but have picked up two bits of [possibly] useful info:

1) Using cool-sounding LiveCDs like lxnay's stuff will fail at the 'chroot' part. Supposedly one can't change from a 32bit environment to a 64.

2) Reiserfs4 won't work on amd64 architectures.

Granted, neither of these are directly mentioned in the tutorial on the first page, but they are mentioned throughout here. If these two warnings are invalid, please correct. Happy installs.

EDIT:
Whee. Slick install with no problems. Only added maybe two things from the amd64 manual such as the userlocales and grub-static, etc. Fussing with GRUB not wanting to mount / right now and getting an error about mtabs. I noticed that the Gentoo manual "cp /proc/mounts /etc/mtab" but not here; maybe it should be?

Shouldn't the urls in the tutorial be changed while things are problematic? That way people wouldn't have to check the last page to see if someone else got the same problem :p

Also.. is it just me, or you should select the fast mirrors after the make.conf is downloaded and edited? Otherwise you would be deleting the fast mirror you just put in the make.conf XD

Yes. You should download the make.conf THEN do the mirrorselect line.

Quick question, I followed this install tutorial and everything is working fine, but I noticed that I edited my make.conf file to say ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" instead of ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="x86" I looked back at the tutorial and I am not sure which way it should be. If I change to just x86 and then try to "emerge world" it wants to downgrade almost everything on my system. Should I have ~x86 or just x86 in my make.conf?

Thanks!!!

You should leave the ACCEPT_KEYWORDS variable unchanged. Don't be afraid of using so-called unstable packages. They are merely less well-tested, and in case of trouble, well, you can always refer to the gentoo wiki or here.
