Remaning bug : M5451

Stopped working on it. Will try with 2005.0 ASAP

Sun Mar 27 13:49:21 CET 2005

Installing Gentoo 2004.3 stage 3 with a genkernel and Kernel 2.6.9 (emerge development-sources)

  • boot from CD% * boot without any additional options (just press enter)%
  • Press F2 when splash screen comes% * Select your keyboard (I use 10)%
net-setup eth0
  • setup net

make partitions and so on

mke2fs -L boot /dev/hda2
mkreiserfs -l root /dev/hda4
mkswap /dev/hda3
swapon /dev/hda3
mount /dev/hda4 /mnt/gentoo
mkdir /mnt/gentoo/boot
mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/gentoo/boot
cd /mnt/gentoo
tar -xjvpf /mnt/cdrom/stages/stage3-athlon-xp-2004.3.tar.bz2
tar -xjvf /mnt/cdrom/snapshots/portage-20041022.tar.bz2 -C /mnt/gentoo/usr
mkdir /mnt/gentoo/usr/portage/distfiles
cp /mnt/cdrom/distfiles/* /mnt/gentoo/usr/portage/distfiles
nano /mnt/gentoo/etc/make.conf
cp -L /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf
mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
source /etc/profile
ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Berlin /etc/localtime
emerge development-sources
emerge genkernel
genkernel all

Check the files

ls /boot
emerge hotplug
nano /etc/fstab
echo jakob > hostname
echo sack > dnsdomainname
rc-update add domainname default
nano /etc/conf.d/net
rc-update add net.eth0 default
nano /etc/hosts
USE="-X" emerge pcmcia-cs
rc-update add pcmcia default
nano /etc/rc.conf
emerge metalog
rc-update add metalog default
emerge reiserfsprogs
emerge grub
nano /boot/grub/grub.conf
cp proc/mounts /etc/mtab
grub-install --root-directory=/boot /dev/hda
umount /mnt/gentoo/boot
umount /mnt/gentoo/proc
umount /mnt/gentoo
  • Computer restarts and you should hope that it works.

# Use KEYMAP to specify the default console keymap.  There is a complete tree
# of keymaps in /usr/share/keymaps to choose from.  This setting is used by the
# /etc/init.d/keymaps script.
# Should we first load the 'windowkeys' console keymap?  Most x86 users will
# say "yes" here.  Note that non-x86 users should leave it as "no".
# The maps to load for extended keyboards.  Most users will leave this as is.
#EXTENDED_KEYMAPS="backspace keypad"
# CONSOLEFONT specifies the default font that you'd like Linux to use on the
# console.  You can find a good selection of fonts in /usr/share/consolefonts;
# you shouldn't specify the trailing ".psf.gz", just the font name below.
# To use the default console font, comment out the CONSOLEFONT setting below.
# This setting is used by the /etc/init.d/consolefont script (NOTE: if you do
# not want to use it, run "rc-update del consolefont" as root).
# CONSOLETRANSALTION is the charset map file to use.  Leave commented to use
# the default one.  Have a look in /usr/share/consoletrans for a selection of
# map files you can use.
# Set CLOCK to "UTC" if your system clock is set to UTC (also known as
# Greenwich Mean Time).  If your clock is set to the local time, then set CLOCK
# to "local".  This setting is used by the /etc/init.d/clock script.
# Set EDITOR to your preferred editor.
# Set PROTOCOLS to the protocols that you plan to use.  Gentoo Linux will only
# enable module auto-loading for these protocols, eliminating annoying module
# not found errors.
# NOTE: Do NOT uncomment the next lines, but add them to 'PROTOCOLS=...' line========
# Num   Protocol
# 1:    Unix
# 2:    IPv4
# 3:    Amateur Radio AX.25
# 4:    IPX
# 5:    DDP / appletalk
# 6:    Amateur Radio NET/ROM
# 9:    X.25
# 10:   IPv6
# 11:   ROSE / Amateur Radio X.25 PLP
# 19:   Acorn Econet
# Most users want this:
#For IPv6 support:
#PROTOCOLS="1 2 10"
# What display manager do you use ?  [[ xdm | gdm | kdm | entrance ]]
# XSESSION is a new variable to control what window manager to start
# default with X if run with xdm, startx or xinit.  The default behavior
# is to look in /etc/X11/Sessions/ and run the script in matching the
# value that XSESSION is set to.  The support scripts is smart enouth to
# look in all bin directories if it cant find a match in /etc/X11/Sessions/,
# so setting it to "enligtenment" can also work.  This is basically used
# as a way for the system admin to configure a default system wide WM,
# allthough it will work if the user export XSESSION in his .bash_profile, etc.
# NOTE:  1) this behaviour is overridden when a ~/.xinitrc exists, and startx
#           is called.
#        2) even if a ~/.xsession exist, if XSESSION can be resolved, it will
#           be executed rather than ~/.xsession, else KDM breaks ...
# Defaults depending on what you install currently include:
# Gnome - will start gnome-session
# kde-<version> - will start startkde (ex: kde-3.0.2)
# Xsession - will start a terminal and a few other nice apps
