Split from ck-sources : All about choice ! as it's a different subject and moved to Installing Gentoo as this is the best place to ask questions before you install Gentoo.

Split ^^above^^ from ck-sources : All about choice ! and merged to here.

This is a new question so it deserves a new topic. Also, you already asked it. Asking it again doesn't help a reply come any faster. In fact it can slow it down because now there's admins replying about the movement and maintenance being done, and your topic no longer shows up on "read unanswered posts".

1. Boot into a livecd. Run "lspci -n" and paste the results into http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/ to check which hardware is supported.

2. Hardware which mostly "just works" should be thinkpads, dell xps 13 ultrabook, and probably others ( I don't have an exhaustive list ;-) )

Hi ppurka.

I found my laptop on that page. :D
I'm happy cos my wifi card was not supported 2 years before. Now it should be Yess!
So maybe another 3 years later I can build my first Gentoo system. I love Linux :lol: :lol:

But I'm not sure for ex my graph card supported?

see : http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/Samsung/R710

The graphics is an nvidia graphics card. You will get very good performance (opengl performance better or on par with windows) from the binary nvidia drivers - http://packages.gentoo.org/package/x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers

So the install book said "Every 6 months (give or take), a special DVD is crafted by the Gentoo Ten project which can be used to install Gentoo with too."
And I just found this
livedvd-x86-amd64-32ul-20121221.iso 22-Dec-2012 00:18 3.8G

So thats the most fresh Live DVD? :?

You can use ANY linux live media (gentoo, ubuntu, mint, and so on, no matter). The only limitation - it should be the same architecture that you will to install (x32 or amd64).
All you need is to get access to terminal or konsole (from GUI). And you can start. All the tools you need can be found on every live CD/DVD
Using GUI more handy: you can use browser (e.g. firefox) for reading handbook during installation and share Internet connection between live media and installation environment (chroot)

Nothing wrong with that, it states you can install Gentoo using LiveDVD. Guess what, you can.
There is no architecture x32, BTW. It is x86.

in kde terminal
Code:
ping -c2 google.com
if ping works you have a network connection. Move on to Section 4. Preparing the Disks
