It is been quite a while since I have installed gentoo on my computer.
What I would like to know is there is a way to see when I have installed ?

Thank you

dejima,

You might still have the stage3 file in /
Code:
# head /var/log/emerge.log
1238672341: Started emerge on: Apr 02, 2009 11:39:01
unless you have removed that file.

Code:
# ls -l  /*/.keep
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Nov 13  2005 /home/.keep
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Apr  2  2009 /lib32/.keep
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Apr  2  2009 /mnt/.keep
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Apr  2  2009 /opt/.keep
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Apr  2  2009 /root/.keep
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Apr  2  2009 /sbin/.keep
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Apr  2  2009 /usr/.keep


/home was migrated from another system.

You can check you users passwords for date (if password wasn't changed since install date):

# passwd -S root

another way is checking for partition creation date:

# tune2fs -l /dev/sdXY | grep created


usually these two dates matches to installation date
