Well, well, well...

Even though I've said in my poll that stage1 install is fine, this turned out to NOT be the case. Right now I'm trying to install gentoo/x86 +nptl on the spare machine I'd like to use as a server and I'm having some trouble.

While progressing from stage1-x86-2005.1.tar.bz2 to stage2 I've found a common problem wrt. python-chksum. IOW, the emerge -e system stopped with an error. I'd say this is a common problem, and as you can clearly see from my poll that stage1 is more popular than stage3 install, the more users changing CHOST setting may have the same problem. To my surprise stage3 is recommended in some places (like bug #88777 + comment #45 and bug #105809). There are many discussions on the python-chksum problem and circular dependencies in general, so I'll summarize what I've found:

So, looks like the Bob P's Stage 1/3 Installation (version 2005.0 + gcc-3.4.3 or version 2005.0 + gcc-3.4.4 ) is still probably the best method of installing Gentoo right now.

Ho, humm...

As I really want a new, clean Gentoo installation, currently I'm left in the middle of nowhere.
So I'd like to ask you for advice: what should be done now?


Edit: corrected two links in the list

Please refer to this post for the magic command that will let you continue emerge -e system without any symlink magic or CHOST hacking. :)

All right, that rocks! However it heals the symptoms and not the problem.
And the real question which remains unanswered is:

To bother with stage1 or not to bother with it at all???
