I am new to Linux. I have used couple of PC live CDs before. Now I installed Gentoo on my PS3 with minimal install CD.
I followed http://ps3wiki.qj.net/index.php/Gentoo_Howto this tutorial and as my PS3 was not connected to Internet with cable I followed

"(chroot) livecd / # emerge --sync (Skip this step if your PS3 is not connected to the internet.)
This will take some time. Go and make yourself a cup of coffee :)"

as tutorial said. But now when after installing I try to emerge anything it says portage tree empty.
I never put any portage as tutorial dint say it is must. So now how should I get it working.
Also can someone direct me how can I get my wireless connection setup from this linux.

You should install a portage snapshot.

You will have to download it to a medium and than transfer it to your box.

I know that I need Portage snapshot, but as I said I am new to Linux, so I am trying to understand how should I proceed with installing it once I have it downloaded

Ok I got that working. So Now I am able to emerge. I tried KDEBase, but after emerging, it does not show it to me when i do

ls /etc/X11/Sessions/

It shows me only xfce4 and XSession

Are there any caonfiguration files to be changed. Coz I remember seeing some message like that after emerge was done but it dint say what file.
