I just did a successful install and wanted to note some things where I needed to deviate from the guide to get things to install.

1) I booted off the standard Gentoo 2008.0 minimal X86_64 CD, so tar doesn't support lzma. I downloaded the portage-latest.bz2 instead
2) As of 29 Dec 2008, the funtoo stage3 64-bit tarball has udev configured in a way incompatible with this install. The result is (sometimes) a nonworking console keyboard and all kinds of initd restarting too frequently messages (and a /dev directory that is minimal and dysfucntional).

The fix is, before rebooting, to:

Code:

rc-update del udevd sysinit
rc-update add udev sysinit


The result should be the following udev scripts in /etc/runlevels:

Code:

# ls -l /etc/runlevels/*/*udev*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 26 Dec 30 10:42 /etc/runlevels/boot/udev-postmount -> /etc/init.d/udev-postmount
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 Dec 30 10:42 /etc/runlevels/shutdown/udev-save -> /etc/init.d/udev-save
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Dec 30 18:29 /etc/runlevels/sysinit/udev -> /etc/init.d/udev


3) In setting up paludis, I needed to do things in a slightly different order than the guide suggests. Also, the guide does not specify when in the process the portage2paludis.bash script should be run. The order that worked for me was

Quote:

(1) Downloading the portage2paludis script
(2) Making directories for paludis
(3) Emerging paludis
(4) Using chown to change ownership to paludisbuild > portage
(5) Run portage2paludis.bash
(6) Syncing paludis
(7) Regenerating cache
(8)paludis -i dev-util/git subversion cvs mercurial
(9) Configuring paludis


Also, to rebuild world and to get X, qt-gui, and kde to build, I had to add some USE flags to /etc/paludis/use.conf. Resuming was no problem, by cutting and pasting the paludis resume command into a script and running the script once the USE flags were updated.

All in all an excellent guide--the best I've found so far. Thanks for all your hard work, and for sharing the results!

Ah, thanks jeans, I just ran into that udev issue. Your suggestion worked perfectly.

Need the build error, that tells me nothing.

It really isn't supposed to be in environment.conf, but in the actual environment itself.

Either /etc/env.d , ~/.bashrc, ~/.profile, etc

I'm installing new machine right now and I think section 5.1 could be improved a bit by changing URLs to symlinks to up to date files. For amd64 it would be http://www.funtoo.org/linux/funtoo/~amd64/stage3-~amd64-current.tar.bz2. Also for unpacking I prefer this one-liner
Code:
curl http://www.funtoo.org/linux/funtoo/~amd64/stage3-~amd64-current.tar.bz2 | tar jxvp -C /mnt/gentoo
In 8.3 paludis -i --dl-reinstall if-use-changed should be sufficient.

I can pretty much promise you.. this project is dead.

Cheater and I have lives.. we no longer really have time for this project..

Gentoo is not my style anymore..

But I think most of you can see that, since there's not been a new release in almost a year.

Have fun all.
