I'm installing Gentoo 2007.0 from the Universal install cd for PPC32.
I got through the partitioning and the unpacking of the stage3 tarball to my root mount point. Then it came to getting the mirrors to get a snapshot for portage (as per the instructions in the installation handbook). However.... there's no links or lynx installed! No portage, no emerge, and no web-browsers. How am I supposed to continue the installation?

any help would be appreciated.

thanks :)

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Gentoo on PPC.
ppc stuff, so moved here.

The universal cd's has a stage3 file. If you unpack that in the chroot target dir you will have portage and the toolchain to emerge things in your chroot. The livecd environment (outside the chroot) does not have it of course, but it should have links.

thanks for the reply!

hmm, I had done all of that (unpacked it to the chroot target) and there are quite a few commands and tools there after unpacking, but no portage, no links. The liveCD doesn't seem to have links either. I got this file from the bittorrent source. Is it confirmed to have links on the liveCD? Maybe I'm just missing something...
