Conrad Installation Guide Version: 0.7.5
Forewarning
This IS an advanced install guide for gentoo linux, it is assuming you have knowledge of gentoo and gnu/linux in general!
-----
The most hardcore and up-to-date of its kind!
The RIGHT way to get a GCC 4.0 based system!
-----
Conrad Install 1.0 Development
Working on new plans for the Conrad install method upgrade to 1.0
* FOUND a more optimized make.conf (Open for suggestions!)
* Devising 3 Methods (Insane = LDFLAGS+Bdirect+Glibc-2.3.90*+New CFLAGS, LSANE = LDFLAGS+New CFLAGS, SFLBSAL "settle for less but still a lot"= new CFLAGS)
the FOLLOWING CFLAGS WILL be used by the new version
Code:

      CFLAGS="-O2 -march=athlon-xp -mtune=athlon-xp -fomit-frame-pointer -ftracer -pipe"
      CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
      CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS} -fvisibility-inlines-hidden"
      LDFLAGS="-Wl,-O1 -Wl,--sort-common -s,-Wl, -Bdirect"

* LDFLAGS are being thoroughly testing! - -Bdirect is ONLY Supported on nxsty's glibc overlays!
* Slightly different toolkit build process
* e17 instructions
<!Looking for Suggestions!>
------
For an automated version of this install method See
Lucky-1.0.1 'Piñata'

CONRAD IRC CHANNEL
Join - #conrad on FreeNode (no longer #conrad-gentoo)
FOR REISER4 AS MENTIONED IN GUIDE...
You need the Conrad Install LiveCD
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-405729.html
-----
NOTICE:
The Conrad method is not supported in any way by the Gentoo Linux Foundation.
Well, I love the gentoo foundation, but it is the truth and the right thing to say :wink:
-----
11/24/05 - Upgraded to 0.7.5 - Safety First
-----
The only guide with GCC 4.0.x/latest support!
The only guide with 100% Reiser4/Without copying the filesystem!
The only guide that is updated almost EVERY Day!
-----
0.7.5 - "Safety First"
* Revised to old method (4.0.2)
* Fixed make.conf
<REASON: The new GCC 4.1 snapshot apparently conflicted with the CFLAGS>
-----
Various Fixes/Updates - 0.7.5
None
-----
CONRAD Currently installs with (GCC 4.0, GLIBC 2.3.6, Binutils 2.16.9x)

This is a hardcore gentoo installation guide - When you reboot and complete your installation process, you may fly into the wall behind you and break something on count of the incredible speed that will be harnessed after installing gentoo through The Official Conrad Gentoo Install
-----
As always, this is not supported by gentoo - This is experimental - For advanced users only - So on and so forth
-----
Version: 0.7.5 "Safety First"
-----
IMPORTANT
* GCC 4.X is unsupported and EXPERIMENTAL/MASKED!
* Glibc-2.3.90* is a pre-release/cvs/unsupported snapshot!
* Binutils 2.16.90* is a pre-release/cvs/unsupported snapshot!
* DO NOT POST BUGS REGARDING UNSUPPORTED SOFTWARE TO GENTOO!
-----
The Guide Begins...
-----
Getting Started
Well, there is one last chance for you to turn back - remember CONRAD is not responsible for Heart Attacks, head injuries, or any other injury that may occur after you boot your system.
-----
Oh well, stop hearing me talk about how fast it is, learn how to make it that fast.

1 - The LiveCD

1.1 - First of all, we are going to download the LATEST Conrad Gentoo Installation LiveCD - This is required for reiser4 installation
REISER4 IS NOT REQUIRED! If you do not want to use reiser4, you can use this livecd, or the Gentoo liveCD
Code:
http://bfgraphics.net/conrad/releases


1.2 - Burn it to a CD and boot it - You should be welcomed with a grub screen - with a pretty splash of the dog who made this all possible...Conrad as a puppy.

2 -Preparing the Network

2 - Make sure the network is working properly - Accomplish this my doing "ping google.com" or "ifconfig" in order to test the internet connection, if it is not working by default, try...
Code:
net-setup eth0

Or if you simply run by dhcp
Code:
dhcpcd eth0


3 - Hard disk configuration

3.1 - View the hard disk configuration
Code:

 # hdparm -i /dev/hda


3.2 - Test the Hard Disk's speed
Code:
hdparm -tT /dev/hda


3.3 - Get the maximum from your hard disk
Code:

hdparm -d1 -c1 -X69 /dev/hda


4 - Partitioning the Drive

4.1 Using Fdisk
Code:
# fdisk /dev/hda
Command (m for help): p


Disk /dev/hda: 240 heads, 63 sectors, 2184 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 bytes

Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1             1        14    158760  83  Linux # boot
/dev/hda2            15        49    264600   82  Linux swap # swap
/dev/hda3            50        70    remainder   83  Linux # root


4.2 - Setup your partition scheme
Code:
Something like this
Partition File System    ID  Size      Description
/dev/hda1 ext2   83  100 MB    Boot partition
/dev/hda2 (swap)         82  512 MB    Swap partition
/dev/hda3 Reiser4  83  Remainder Root Partition

When done, hit "w" in fdisk to write the changes

4.3 - Creating your partitons - Reiser4/reiserfs/ext3 for root, ext2/ext3 for boot, swap for swap
Code:
# mkfs.reiser4 /dev/hda3
# mkfs.ext2 /dev/hda1
# mkswap /dev/hda2
# swapon /dev/hda2


4.4 - Mounting your hard drives
Code:
# mount /dev/hda3 /mnt/gentoo
# mkdir /mnt/gentoo/proc && mkdir /mnt/gentoo/boot
# mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/gentoo/boot



5 - Setting up for a chroot

5.1 - Downloading and extracting a stage3 tarball
Code:
# cd /mnt/gentoo
Choose and download your architecture here... (NPTL Requires i586 or higher)
http://gentoo.osuosl.org/releases/x86/2005.1-r1/stages/

# tar -jxvf stage3-ARCH-2005.1-r1.tar.bz2

5.2 - Downloading and extracting a portage snapshot
Code:
# http://distfiles.gentoo.org/snapshots/portage-latest.tar.bz2
# tar jxvf portage-latest.tar.bz2 -C /mnt/gentoo/usr


5.3 - Copying resolv.conf/mounting proc and dev
Code:
#cp /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf
# mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
# mount -o bind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev


6 - Chrooting into an environment

6.1 - Chrooting and Running env-update;source /etc/profile
Code:
# chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
# env-update; source /etc/profile


6.2 - Emerging Sync
Code:
# emerge sync


7 - Downloading a new make.conf

7.1 - Creating a new make.conf
We will create a new make.conf here, here's what We'll do.
Code:
# rm /etc/make.conf

NOW- You need to copy-paste this, or edit it manually, or type the lines, here is the make.conf reccomended.
Code:
CFLAGS="-O2 -march=YOURARCH -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe"
CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86"
PORTAGE_TMPDIR=/var/tmp
PORTDIR=/usr/portage
PORT_LOGDIR=/var/log/portage
PORTDIR_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage
GENTOO_MIRRORS="http://gentoo.osuosl.org http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/gentoo"
SYNC="rsync://rsync.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage"
PORTAGE_NICENESS=10
AUTOCLEAN="yes"
FEATURES="ccache distlocks userpriv"
USE="nptl nptlonly pic"


7.3 - Making appropriate portage TMP and OVERLAY directories
Code:
#mkdir -p /var/log/portage
#mkdir -p /usr/local/portage


8 - Building/rebuilding/system-rebuilding with gcc 4.0

8.1 - Adding Necessary entries to package.keywords/package.unmask
Here are the files you need to create...
/etc/portage/package.use
Code:
sys-libs/glibc nomalloccheck nptl nptlonly pic userlocales
sys-devel/libperl ithreads
dev-lang/perl ithreads
sys-devel/binutils multislot
sys-devel/gcc multislot

/etc/portage/package.keywords
Code:

=sys-libs/glibc-2.3.6-r1 -*

=sys-libs/glibc-2.3.6
=sys-devel/gcc-4.0*
>=dev-libs/lzo-2.0
=media-video/transcode-1.0*


8.2 - (OPTIONAL) Setting locales.build
You have to set this according to your region/area/language
This is completely optional, it just saves build time
Code:
# nano /etc/locales.build


8.3 - Building the toolkit
Code:

# emerge gcc-config mpfr glibc binutils libstdc++-v3 gcc


8.4 - Running gcc-config and binutils-config
Code:
# gcc-config -l

1 ) i686-pc-linux-gnu-3.3.5_2005* (should be similar to this...)
2 - 5 ) (other hardned, etc compilers of 3.3.5)
6 ) i686-pc-linux-gnu-4.0.2* (should be similar to this...)
# gcc-config 6
# binutils-config -l
(should be 2 because we are using the unstable binutils snapshot)
# binutils-config 2
# env-update; source /etc/profile


8.5 - Fetching nxsty's Glibc-2.3.90* ebuild - OPTIONAL
Code:
# wget http://snigel.no-ip.com/~nxsty/linux/glibc-overlay.tar.bz2
# mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/sys-libs
# tar jxvf glibc-overlay.tar.bz2 -C /usr/local/portage/sys-libs
# rm glibc-overlay*
# echo =sys-libs/glibc-2.3.9* -* >> /etc/portage/package.keywords


8.6 - Rebuilding the toolkit
Code:
# emerge glibc binutils libstdc++-v3 gcc


8.7 - Pruning the old Compiler and Binutils
Code:
# emerge -aP gcc (make sure it wants to prune the old version)
# emerge -aP binutils (make sure it wants to prune the old version)



8.8 - Rebuilding the System
Code:
# emerge --emptytree system


9 Configuring the kernel

9.1 - Choosing your kernel
Choose a kernel source based on what your needs/likes are
The DEFAULT Conrad Install uses NITRO-Sources - But there are 4 other trusted kernels.
Code:

9.3 - Emerging The Kernel
(NOTE: Depending on which kernel you chose, substitute as necessary)
Code:
# mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/nitro-sources
# mv nitro-sources-* /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/nitro-sources
# ebuild /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/nitro-sources/nitro-sources-2.6.14-r2.ebuild digest
# echo sys-kernel/nitro-sources ~x86 >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
# emerge nitro-sources


9.4 - Configuring and Compiling the kernel
-----
I can only help you out so much, what I can do is tell you how to get started, and what is required...
Code:
# cd /usr/src/linux
# make menuconfig

Code:

9.5 - Emerging Grub
Code:
# mount /dev/hda1 /boot
# echo sys-boot/grub ~x86 >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
# emerge grub

The Conrad guide no longer supports installing on a root partition - it works fine on any other filesystem, but reiser4 and grub can cause serious problems, 99% of the time it will only boot to a grub CMDLINE
Windows users, your partition layout could look like this, 1-windows,2-swap,3-root,4-boot

9.6 - Compiling the Kernel
Code:
# make && make modules_install && make install


10 - Emerging additional system files

10.1 Emerging necessary programs
Code:

# emerge syslog-ng reiser4progs sysfsutils dhcpcd hotplug coldplug gentoolkit acpid


10.2 Adding the programs to the default runlevel
Code:
# rc-update add syslog-ng default
# rc-update add net.eth0 default
# rc-update add hotplug default
# rc-update add coldplug default
# rc-update add acpid default


11 - Setting up the framebuffer splash
If you followed the kernel compile options, you should have everything required

11.1 - Emerging splashutils and a few themes
Code:
# emerge splashutils splash-themes-gentoo
# rc-update add splash boot


11.2 - Downloading the CONRAD-fbsplash theme - OPTIONAL
Preview1: http://www.bfgraphics.net/conrad-gentoo/lib/fbsplash1.png
Preview2: http://www.bfgraphics.net/conrad-gentoo/lib/fbsplash2.png
These are previews of the new conrad fbsplash theme - it supports 5 resolutions (640x480,800x600,1024x768,1280x1024, and 1600x1200)
It is a lot smoother, I had to take the first screenshot with the digital camera
Code:
# wget bfgraphics.net/conrad-gentoo/lib/conrad-fbsplash.tar.bz2
# tar jxvf conrad-fbsplash.tar.bz2 -C /etc/splash


11.2 - Generating an initramfs (initrd) image
Code:
# cd /etc/splash
# splash_geninitramfs -v -g /boot/fbsplash-conrad -r 1024x768 conrad
# rm -rf /etc/splash/default/*
# ln -s /etc/splash/conrad/* /etc/splash/default/


12 - Setting up grub

12.1 - The CONRAD Custom Grub Splash
Brand new Conrad Grub Splash, will be seen on the next conrad livecd (unless it uses isolinux, it's in debate)
This custom splashimage is not totally conrad-based, it still states gentoo linux at the top in big bold letters :)
Code:
Preview: http://www.bfgraphics.net/conrad/conrad-grub.png
Download:
http://bfgraphics.net/conrad/0.5.0/grub/conrad.xpm.gz


12.2 - Grub.conf

Code:

Boot partition...

default 0
timeout 30 # amount of time (seconds) before grub boots the selected option
splashimage (hd0,0)/grub/conrad.xpm.gz
# The CONRAD Splash image is a very nice splash, that can be previewed above

title=Conrad-Gentoo | GCC4
root (hd0,0) # boot partition
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.14-nitro2 root=/dev/hda3 video=vesafb:1024x768-16@80,mtrr,ywrap splash=silent,fadein,theme:gentoo quiet CONSOLE=/dev/tty1
initrd (hd0,0)/fbsplash-conrad

title=Windoze (if existent)
rootnoverify (hd0,3)
makeactive
chainloader +1


12.3 - Running grub to install grub
Note: GRUB will only install on reiser4 partitions if you installed it the reiser4 way
Code:

# grub
<grub:> root (hd0,0) # boot partition
# boot partiton
<grub:> setup (hd0)
<grub:> quit


13 - Configuring your system

13.1 - Editing configuration files
Code:
# nano /etc/conf.d/hdparm
Add the following
hda_args="-d1 -X69 -c1"
cdrom0_args="-d1"


13.2 - Set your hostname and domainname
Code:
# nano /etc/conf.d/hostname
(Set your hostname)
HOSTNAME="conrad-gentoo"

# nano /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost
..change to..
127.0.0.1 conrad-gentoo
# ^ = your hostname

Code:
# nano /etc/conf.d/domainname
# DNSDOMAIN="gentoo.org"
# NISDOMAIN=""
- If you don't know what a nisdomain is, leave it blank

Editing the /etc/conf.d/net
(Not necessary for dhcp users as of 2005.1)
Code:
# nano /etc/conf.d/net
For possible lines, visit the Configuring the Network section in the Gentoo Handbook Here
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=1&chap=8#doc_chap2


13.3 - Configuring FSTAB
Code:
# nano /etc/fstab
# <fs>               <mountpoint>  <type>       <opts>               <dump/pass>
# Reiser4 Users use, noatime and nodiratime - in opts
/dev/hda1            /boot         ext2     noauto,notail        1 2
/dev/hda3            /             reiser4     notail               0 1
/dev/hda2            none          swap         sw                   0 0
/dev/hdd   /mnt/cdrom    iso9660      user,noauto,ro,exec  0 0
/dev/fd0             /mnt/floppy   auto         noauto,users         0 0

# NOTE: The next line is critical for boot!
none                 /proc         proc         defaults             0 0

# glibc 2.2 and above expects tmpfs to be mounted at /dev/shm for
# POSIX shared memory (shm_open, shm_unlink).
# (tmpfs is a dynamically expandable/shrinkable ramdisk, and will
# use almost no memory if not populated with files)
# Adding the following line to /etc/fstab should take care of this:

none                 /dev/shm      tmpfs        nodev,nosuid         0 0


13.4 - Setting up users
First set the root password
Code:
# passwd
<enter new password>
<confirm new password>


Then set up a user
Code:
# useradd -m -G users,wheel conrad
# passwd conrad
<set conrads password


14 - Rebooting and Booting!


14.1 - Rebooting And Unmounting
Code:
# umount /boot
# umount /proc
# exit
# umount /mnt/gentoo
# reboot


14.2 - Booting the system
Find yourself at a grub menu, and boot into your system
If you get a kernel panic then check to make sure you configured everything properly

15 - Other Configuration

15.1 - Looking at the possible use variables
Code:
# nano /usr/portage/profiles/use.desc

There are tons of user variables, by x86 the following are used by default
Code:
USE="x86 oss apm arts avi berkdb crypt cups encode foomaticdb gdbm gif gpm gtk gtk2 imlib jpeg kde gnome libg++
libwww mad mikmod motif mpeg ncurses nls oggvorbis opengl pam pdflib png python qt quicktime readline sdl
slang spell ssl svga tcpd truetype X xml2 xmms xv zlib indent"


15.2 - Setting USE Flags

There are tons of use flags to choose from, personally, I like a gnome/gtk/opengl/nvidia system, here is how I will set my use flags
Code:
# nano /etc/make.conf

USE="nptl alsa X gtk gnome -qt -kde -arts win32codecs nvidia opengl"[/code]

15.3 - Deleting the 'netmount' service if it is unneeded
Most people don't need this, it will fail to start in most cases
Code:
# rc-update del netmount


For more In-Depth configuration information, consult the Gentoo Handbook


16 - Installing Xorg-X11 6.9RC and a graphical environment

16.1 - Downloading and Extracting the xorg 6.9 ebuild

# DISPLAYMANAGER="xdm"
uncomment it and change it to GDM
# rc-update add xdm default
# xorgconfig
<go through this script>


16.4 - Graphics Drivers
If you have 3D acceleration on your card, you may want to, and should install the NVidia or ATI Drivers.
Gentoo NVIDIA Guide: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/nvidia-guide.xml
Gentoo-Wiki ATI Guide: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_ATI_Drivers

16.5 - The CONRAD Wallpaper Archive

Code:
# Wallpaper 1 - MacOSX/Conrad
http://www.bfgraphics.net/conrad/GFX/conrad-wallpapers/1-macosconrad/



17 - Configuring ALSA
For more information you may want to visit the Gentoo Linux Alsa Guide...
Gentoo Alsa Guide: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/alsa-guide.xml

17.1 - Emerging alsa-utils

Code:
# emerge alsa-utils


17.2 - Running alsaconf
Since alsa 0.9 (i believe) there has been an excellent configurator script included for ALSA
Code:
# alsaconf


17.3 - the asoundrc/asound.conf file
Phaeronix has made an excellent asound.conf file, here is the url to it, copy it and past it in either ~/user/.asoundrc, or /etc/asound.conf
Code:
www.phaeronix.net
----
Go to the "Alsa Config" Section


17.4 - Editing Additional Files

Code:
# nano /etc/modules.d/alsa
<Find near the botton snd-***, and sound-***>
change *** to your sound card name, for example...
snd-intel8x0 sound-intel8x0
snd-emu10k1 sound-emu10k1


17.5 - Adding alsasound to the default runlevel
Code:
# rc-update add alsasound default



Now alsa should be successfully configured, and configured right - Additional tools you may use could be, alsamixer, amixer, etc

18 - Keeping your system up-to-date

18.1 - Keeping the kernel sources up-to-date
If you get to a point in which you want to upgrade the kernel - it can be maybe different when using a custom patchset

First and foremost you want to check back at the Gentoo Forums "Unsupported Software" section, and look for any new Nitro-Sources threads.

Code:
# cp nitro-sources-2.6.xx-*.ebuild /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/nitro-sources
# ebuild /usr/local/portage/sys-kernel/nitro-sources/nitro-sources-2.6.xx-*.ebuild digest
# cp /usr/src/linux/.config /usr/src/config
# rm /usr/src/linux
# emerge nitro-sources
# cd /usr/src/linux
# make menuconfig
Load an alternate Configuration file --->
"../config"


18.2 - Updating the world
First of all always keep the sync up-to-date, a emerge sync once a day atleast is reccomended
Code:
# emerge sync

Then, to update the world you have a few commands, all similar
Code:
# emerge -uD world
# emerge -u world

I don't reccomend using any other commands than that, that should be sufficient

//End Conrad Guide :)
-----

Well this brings us to our end, I hope you the best of luck.

Now your system should be on the edge in speed and it should be the most up-to-date system once installed.

Your system (hopefully) Now includes...
* Reiser4 Filesystem (possibly)
* GCC 4.0.2 based system
* The LATEST Packages portage has to offer
* The speed of a military jet x 3
* Possibly the latest GNOME, KDE, and xorg 6.9RC/CVS
* Nitro-Sources-<latest> (possible)
* A very nice boot-up splash with a progress bar

well shucks. oh well I hacked away at your script which is written nicely, i <3 bash scripting. anyways what i did was make it so i could have the system stop at the point where its about to emerge -e system what i did instead was had it emerge -ef system then i compiled/emerged grub and nitro-sources and all the system programs vixxie-cron reiser4utils dhcpcd etc... so that i could hopefully reboot into my system with nothing but the necessary things i need to do emerge -e system with a rocksolid gcc-3.4.4 and reiser4 (havent been home I left it last night it was compiling gcc for the first time.). i also made a script that unmasked and fetched kde-3,5.0_beta2 ebuilds. ill let you know how it worked.

nevermind i get it its because the first script stops when it has chrooted to /mnt/gentoo/ so you have to continue on, well
would it make sence for the first script to look like this so it wouldnt be confusing and do the same things twice ie. extract stage tarballs and portage snapshot
Code:
#!/bin/bash
echo "----"
echo "Starting CONRAD Gentoo i686 GCC 3.4.4 BASE Install Script............................."
echo "----"
echo "Make sure your Filesystem is properly mounted to /mnt/gentoo !"
echo "----"
echo "Make sure your network is configured properly before continuing"
echo "----"
cd /mnt/gentoo
echo "Downloading Stage3 i686 Tarball From gentoo.osuosl.org"
wget http://gentoo.osuosl.org/releases/x86/2005.1/stages/i686/stage3-i686-2005.1.tar.bz2
echo "Done!"
echo "Extracting Stage3 i686 Tarball"
echo "...Depending on your system, this may take awhile"
tar xjpvf stage3-i686-2005.1.tar.bz2
echo "...Done!"
echo "Downloading Latest Portage Snapshot"
wget http://gentoo.osuosl.org/snapshots/portage-latest.tar.bz2
echo "...Done!"
echo "Extacting portage snapshot to usr/portage"
echo "...This can take quite some time"
tar jxvf portage-latest.tar.bz2 -C /mnt/gentoo/usr
echo "...Done!"
echo "Deleting Stage3 Tarball and Portage Tarball..."
rm portage-latest.tar.bz2 && rm stage3-i686-2005.1.tar.bz2
echo "...Done!"
echo "Copying mounts, mounting proc, and chrooting"
cp -L /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/gentoo/etc/resolv.conf
mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc
cp /proc/mounts /mnt/gentoo/etc/mtab
chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash



and just go on from here in script 2
Code:
env-update && source /etc/profile
echo "Editing make.conf..."
rm /etc/make.conf
wget http://bfgraphics.net/make.conf-1
mv make.conf-1 /etc/make.conf
rm -r /var/log/portage
rm -r /usr/local/portage
mkdir /var/log/portage
mkdir /usr/local/portage
echo "The portage overlay directory is set to /usr/local/portage"
echo "The mirrors are set to DEFAULT, use mirrorselect to change"
echo "...Done!"
echo "Making GCC 3.4.4 Part of the stable branch"
echo ~sys-devel/gcc-3.4.4 ~x86 >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo sys-devel/gcc-config ~x86 >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo sys-libs/libstdc++-v3 ~x86 >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo sys-libs/glibc ~x86 >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
echo "...Done!"
echo "Updating the portage tree..."

and another thing, when changing your stage tarballs arch (fron i686 to whatever you use) its necessary to change the make.conf according to the arch right (?) so durring this step
Code:
echo "Editing make.conf..."
rm /etc/make.conf
wget http://bfgraphics.net/make.conf-1
mv make.conf-1 /etc/make.conf

it would default to i686 arch
i got around this by editing the script like this
Code:
echo "Editing make.conf..."
rm /etc/make.conf
mv make.conf-1 /etc/make.conf

and
Code:
wget http://bfgraphics.net/make.conf-1 && wget http://bfgraphics.net/make.conf-2

then i edited make.conf-1 and 2 according to my arch

also changed this so it wouldnt go back to i686 again
Code:
echo "Editing make.conf..."
rm /etc/make.conf
mv make.conf-2 /etc/make.conf

The scripts are identical, but one (the second one) is commented out up to where it needs to be, so they run different things.

You were right about the make.conf, if it worked for you :)

I am working on a few more bash scripts, I will update the guide majorly over the weekend
* New make.conf setup, more optimized
* More than one install script - There will be one for x86, 586, and 686
^^ I will keep the webserver more organized with conrad/ directory, including the iso, i686/ i586/ and x86/, all containing their personal make.conf(s) and other files
* New hdparm setup
* Gnome and KDE Install Bash Scripts
^ (both scripts will contain a package.keywords containing all of the KDE components, GNOME components, and a few others ^
* Gensplash will be in the guide
* More complete descriptions in the guide
-----
I am re-building my entire system and gnome with the new make.conf to test it, as it contains more options (-mtune=<arch>, -ffast-math, keeping the -Os flag
Slightly changed LDFLAGS
-----
After I get a working make.conf, I will experiment building bash scripts.
And for some reason grub has no splash support, I will resolve this as well.

You are also free to browse the recently setup, conrad mirror.

http://www.bfgraphics.net/conrad/
-----
It contains installation scripts for i386(testing), i586 (testing), i686 (testing)
the i386 (x86) doesn't conatin NPTL threading support, as it is only supported by i586+
It contains make.conf files for all 3 supported archs (tested, proven stable)
It contains a grub 0.95 reiser4 install script, which is untested.
It contains a grub 0.95 reiser4 and splash patch (not tested when patched together)
It contains a KDE and GNOME installation script to install the LATEST KDE and GNOME (untested)
It contains a package.keywords file, which has all of the KDE, GNOME, and system components in it (such as gcc)

And it contains a releases directory, which is where all of the iso's of the livecd will go.

Remember, everything on the mirror is use at your own risk, and not supported by the guide as of 10/29/05

Clap clap clap! Nice work you have there ;) I bet it works like a charm :)

If i had found it a week ago, i'd use it for my x86 Laptop new Gentoo install! Now... I promise i'll try it soon on another machine ;)

But how about a "copy-paste" from this, but for AMD64?
I'll start my AMD64 installation this week, on a RAIDed-0 400GB, DualCore 5.5GHz, and a nVidia 7800 GTX GDDR3........
It's like a "Freaks come out" installation, LOL! It surely would be better if you already have those neat scripts for this architecture ;)

cheers,
Phk!

I could make athlon64 scripts, at the moment I have, i386, i586, i686, p4, and athlon-xp scripts/make.conf files.

I reccomend athlon-xp for amd64 users (like myself) because it runs the fast on it, and it's a stable x86 environment. If you want an amd64 install script, I'll work on it :)

To see the scripts avaliable, visit...
http://bfgraphics.net/conrad

Also I will be soon making GCC 4.0.X Install Scripts --- Because I recently discovered installing it with gcc 4.0.2 successfully, now I'm going to make it into scripts

hi,

will there be a complete install CD (like kororaa) for those who have no network (or slow internet) connection?
if Yes - what will be included and when will it be available?

RobNYC, Of course, I'll go on IRC tonight possibly.

Jastom, An install cd like kororaa is not going to be made.
However, I will be making an install cd, that will basically have stage3 tarballs on the CD, and a portage snapshot - It will be executed by similar scripts as shown above.

I will not make a fully automated install cd LIKE KORORAA, I will make one that will guide the process of installing gentoo, but not install all of the prebuilt graphical/kde applications, but there will be an install cd, less automated than kororaa, and it won't be nearly as advanced or anything.

I was debating taking the kororaa installer script, and making extreme changes to it to have it basically follow the bash scripts, provided here.

Thanks, I was doing the new installation on my celeron but I was up to step #2 but was thinking what to do. and I was thinking about i686 gcc4.0 or i686 gcc3.4.4 , i noticed the make.conf-2 for i686/gcc4.0 is -O3

i have gcc4 running smooth as butter right now, but i had problems, heres how i got around it, i first used the gcc3.4.4 scripts and commented everything in the second script out at emerge -e sytem so all it did was get me to a standard chroot with gcc3.4.4 the system was still compiled in gcc 3.3.5 so then i emerged grub and the nitro kernel sources. then i emerged all the necesary system progs, reiser4progs dhcpcd coldplug etc.. got my kernel compilesd and grub.conf set up also remember to set a root password =) then i booted to my 50% gcc 3.4.4 install. then i downloaded the gcc4 scripts and ran them against gcc 3.4.4 best thing is the live cd wasnt hogging all my memory since i was no longer chrooted. this method worked out PERFECTLY, when i tried doing just the gcc4 scripts i was having problems because when you chroot your using gcc 3.3.5 to compile 4.0.2 and some reason it didnt work, but im halfway through emerge -e system and havent had a problem yet with the method i used. i also tweaked my make.conf to --fmarch=sse --ffast-math and -03 =) still no issues and let me tell you its fast.

any questions let me know

i have gcc4 running smooth as butter right now, but i had problems, heres how i got around it, i first used the gcc3.4.4 scripts and commented everything in the second script out at emerge -e sytem so all it did was get me to a standard chroot with gcc3.4.4 the system was still compiled in gcc 3.3.5 so then i emerged grub and the nitro kernel sources. then i emerged all the necesary system progs, reiser4progs dhcpcd coldplug etc.. got my kernel compilesd and grub.conf set up also remember to set a root password =) then i booted to my 50% gcc 3.4.4 install. then i downloaded the gcc4 scripts and ran them against gcc 3.4.4 best thing is the live cd wasnt hogging all my memory since i was no longer chrooted. this method worked out PERFECTLY, when i tried doing just the gcc4 scripts i was having problems because when you chroot your using gcc 3.3.5 to compile 4.0.2 and some reason it didnt work, but im halfway through emerge -e system and havent had a problem yet with the method i used. i also tweaked my make.conf to --fmarch=sse --ffast-math and -03 =) still no issues and let me tell you its fast.

any questions let me know


Glad to hear!
I'm exploring stable CFLAGS for GCC4, I'd love to see your make.conf, so far here's what I got, that's proven stable
CFLAGS="-O2 -march=<arch> -mtune=<arch> -fomit-frame-pointer -ftracer -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="$CFLAGS, -fvisibility-inlines-hidden

Also, you were saying... that GCC 4.0.2 did NOT compile in the chroot? could you explain a little further, if this is the case, I will change to as you suggested.

I will make the DEFAULT conrad install, 3 scripts, the fetch scripts, the gcc 3.4.4 script, with emerge -e system commented out, then explain kernel and grub, then execute the GCC4 script, as this method may be faster.

ALSO.
Remove the -O3 from your CFLAGS please :) I get scared just thinking about it, in GCC4 it can actually increase the size of the code, and slow down your compilation (after tests, the O2 flag was faster for me in GCC4)

Just a strong suggestion, keep your CFLAGS stable for GCC4, I'm experimenting with flags for GCC4 to determine what is fastest.

heres the scripts i would use... 1 conrad-arch*-gcc3.4.4-ntpl-1 wget the secont gcc 3.4.4 comment lines from emerge -e system so basically all you want it to do is emerge gcc-3.4.4 glibc libdtdc++v3, then it does the same by switching to the gcc version over to its self and then make sure all you have left is gcc3.4.4, now you get the second install script for gcc4 and simpily run it it will do everything that already has been done for gcc 3.4.4 to gcc 4.0.2 and then it emerges -e system with 4.0.2 (why bother doing a emerge -e system with gcc 3.4.4 when your going to do it with gcc 4.0.2) now emerge nitro sources grub and everything else you need to reboot to your gcc-4.0.2, mine is also running reiser4 stable =) im using -0
2 now i was having problems compiling with 03

edit
when i was trying to compile gcc 4.0.2 i got a error along the lines of "not using supported version of compiler (?) so i went and for 3.4.4 and tried compiling 4.0.2 and it worked so far.... read my last few posts on page 2 of this thread
