Congrats on these developments.

Currently i have no need to install gentoo, had a month ago or so. But i think this is great value for Gentoo.

What can i do to help ?

PS:

The way you are developing the "gentoo easy install" is pretty much what i want.

From a quick look, the profile configuration is very nice.

Maybe a global profile that has a set of profiles, more like "normal gentoo profile" ( like packages and user and normal stuff ) and a "hardware gentoo profile" where one would configure the machine hardware

Also support maybe for a world package, so one would only specify a world package and it would install.

It would be nice if later on, we would have "Gentoo community editions", where we could exchange profiles and it would "recreate the edition".

Will take a look more closelly when I get out from work!

Thank you yagami, for your support :)
I'd like to hear pros/cons and any ideas like the ones you named. Cause I'm not really sure about what to do next on my script. It has too much code and functions need some organizing. Maybe a rewrite from scratch is what I should do.
I'll think of something when I have enough time. Anyways, happy to see positive feedback, thank you again for that.

this is awesome script. thanks for coming up with one.

I must admit after installing/reinstall Gentoo a few hundred times the process does get tiring. and this script will speed things up.
Although as others has suggested that installing it is the whole point of the exercise, which is true, but when you're the admin and you already know your stuff or at least know how to install Gentoo. you sometimes just don't have time nor care to go through the processes again.

Some ideas about the instalation script :

Could some package instalations be automatic by portage ( as there seems to be lots of specified packages toinstall on easygentoo script file ).

The profile file is nice, very good. Could there be a way of specifying the USE flags manually ? ( thinking an config file for use flags, like mylaptop, myworkcomputer, mydesktop) and then just referencing them on the profile ?.

add an option to create binpkg and march=x86, does almost making perfect for reinstalation on alot of computers.

what do you think ?

You're welcome elmie, hope it helps you more than you think ^^

@yagami
* I think you mean "using emerge xfce4-meta is better than using emerge xorg-server; emerge eselect-fontconfig fontconfig mesa-progs setxkbmap; emerge xfce4-meta xfce4-notifyd". You may be right. I will check if it works ok that way.
* Specifying USE flags should not be that hard, we just need duplicate/opposite check to avoid conflicts. I'll be working on that.
* I have never used binary packages and have zero knowledge about them. I will try to learn and test your suggestion too.

Thank you both for your feedback.

Actually works very well ... putting the param in emerge to build binpkg , portage afterwards is smart enought to know if emerging the same package again with the same use flags, it will use the binpkg. there isnt really much needed ( just a large disk to store the binpkgs ).

Will this script work with my (extremally) old laptop, Toshiba 1800-804 with 512MB SDRAM and serial mouse?

Hi Oniryczny;
I didn't have a chance to test it on old computers but evdev should detect your serial mouse without problems. Low RAM shouldn't be on your way but you will have long compile times. I think (hope) it will work fine with your laptop.

yagami I'm testing binary package creation/usage and user specified USE flags right now, everything looks fine. I'll add these options soon. Should have done that by now but I don't have much free time.

Any chance you going to fix that: "Installation failed due to compile error. Package: sys-fs/udev-216. Easygentoo will exit now." error? Would like to really try your script.

I've fixed some issues and made some nice improvements. Still testing it but looks like that udev problem is gone. I just had a basic i686 install, it finished without errors.
I'll make a better list of changes later but for now, some new additions to profile variables:
createbin (yes/no)
if enabled, creates binary packages from compilations
usebinfrom (target directory)
if enabled (non-empty), uses binary packages from target directory for installation (instead of compiling them)
userflags (flags you want to include/exclude)
if enabled (non-empty), merges these flags with default flagset
netadap (network adapter name)
Easy Gentoo uses that network adapter (instead of trying to find one), default is empty (auto)

example:
createbin no
usebinfrom /mybinarypkgs
userflags -X dvdr -crypt
netadap eth2

Hi
I tried your script but i have som troubles that i don't understand and i don't know to fix them.
Two questions:

1. i made my partition with gparted but when the script begin, it display this message or something like this:
Code:
The partition /dev/sda1 isn't a block device
The partition /dev/sda2 isn't a block device

where
/dev/sda1 is my swap partiton
/dev/sda2 is my root partition
How can i fix it so i can go on?

2. In your https://github.com/shdcn/easygentoo/blob/master/README.md file you said
Code:
create a profile in the same directory where script is placed
for more information on profile please read:

https://github.com/shdcn/easygentoo/blob/master/profile

How can i create a profile in the same directory where script is placed by terminal?

Thanks in advance!

Hello.

I found this 20 June 2016 fork, but not sure if it works. I'm under a broken Linux system and made a backup. I want to install Gentoo again, but I fogot lots of stuff so this is too time consuming for my rusty skills...

https://github.com/sleepdragon/easygentoo

Any news?

Kind regards.

I guess nobody is that interested, huh? Almost time for that handbook, but... let's see if this gives something https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-8058400.html#8058400

devnullius,

You appear to be learning that there is no Easy Gentoo.

As you say, time for the handbook. Following the handbook for your install will give you some knowledge you can get no other way.
You will learn how to maintain your Gentoo.
That's important because if you trash it while you learn, that's actually quite difficult, you don't lose any valuable user data that you might not have backed up.

Go to the bathroom and look in the mirror. You will see the Gentoo installer there.
