Make sure you download a stage3 tarball - installations using a stage1 or stage2 tarball are not supported anymore.


does this mean no one uses stage1/stage2 systems anymore?

cause i downloaded a stage1 tarball... should i just bootstrap and emerge system where i would normally do this?

You can do the bootstrap.sh and emerge -e system, or grab a stage3 and do an emerge -e system twice.

Mere users have been deemed too stupid to install from stage1. It is still mentioned in the FAQ though.

It simply means that it is not officially supported, that is to say, you're on your own.
