But what can we do when they try to maintain it with 0 knowledge of linux ?


Simple. Tell them to reinstall using the nice graphical installer if they have problems :D

Just read that it uses anaconda. IIRC, someone(s) did that previously and it didn't last.

I just want an unattended install method. "Here's the build profile, now go do it." I have no quarrel with supplying my own binaries.

to answer some questions: installing-gentoo.txt

So, yes, it lets you edit and set your make.conf, select mirrors, etc. It downloads a fresh stage3,... It mostly follows the handbook.


I'm going to give a spin since installing gentoo is a yawn...sorry by being sincere!

5 Installing Gentoo with Anaconda

8 It is fairly easy to install Gentoo using the Anaconda installer (that's the
9 point). For the most part, the installer follows the Gentoo handbook, but there
10 are some exceptions.
11
12 To start the installer, run liveinst as a regular user. You will be asked for
13 your language (this language will be used for the installer as well as your
14 new system), your keyboard layout (just like the language, this keyboard layout
15 will be used throughout the installation and will be the default layout in the
16 installed system).
17
18 After these are selected, you will be asked where would you like to install
19 Gentoo. You will be given several choices: automatic re-partitioning including
20 wipe, using the existing Linux partitions, using the free space on the HDD, or
21 your own personal layout. You can also verify the installer's magic by selecting
22 "Review layout".
23
24 You will then be asked to pick the settings that go into /etc/make.conf. Please
25 follow the instructions on-screen to pick the best options for your new system.
26
27 Select your mirrors and your sync mirrors, so that new packages can be installed
28 and the Portage tree can be updated. Pick your profile and your USE flags.
29
30 Use the nice map to tell the installer where you are, so that the correct
31 timezone is set by the installer. Choose whether you want to pick your own
32 kernel configuration or whether you prefer to just copy the kernel from the DVD.
33
34 Pick your cron and system logger.
35
36 Choose where you'd like the GRUB bootloader installed, and whether you'd like a
37 bootloader password.
38
39 Create a user account and choose whether you'd like a desktop environment with
40 X.org or just text mode.
41
42 The installation will now download a stage3 archive, unpack it on your new
43 system, sync the Portage tree, install some tools, write down your configuration
44 and install any software you elected to install.
45
46 After the installer is done, it will ask you for permission to reboot the
47 system. When you're ready, reboot, remove the LiveDVD from the drive and let
48 your new Gentoo boot. Enjoy! ;-)

You already have installed "Gentoo" by using Sabayon.
What more do you want?

That's an oxymoron. Installing Gentoo IS using the handbook. In the amount of time you spend nagging for an installer, you could've read the Handbook at least twice already.

That guide already exists,it's called Gentoo Handbook.
Available in many languages in case English is not your native tongue.
THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE OF FINDING A "POINT & CLICK" TYPE INSTALLER FOR GENTOO!
