I wouldn't even try to install Gentoo directly into this box. You could build binaries in another host or maybe build in NFS changeroot - this is questionable without wired connection ...

phmo,

Welcome to Gentoo.

You follow the Gentoo Handbook.

Your first decision is do you want a 64 bit (AMD64) or 32 bit (x86) install?
With 1G RAM you may find that 32 bit is better for you in that it takes up less disk space and less RAM.

Choose either the AMD64 or the x86 link from that page.

I have now installed Gentoo with help from another guide and with genkernel.

I installed with wired connection, so wifi is still in my wishes. :?

And it is working fine ... 8O

Only textmod and no GUI yet.

I don't now, don't think I need a desktop, commandline is fine to me.

I only wish to have chrome installed and working, so how do I do that ?

I want to start Chrome from commandline only.

phmo ... chrome (www-client/google-chrome) is a GUI application, so you would need an X11 environment of some sort (not necessarily a DE) to use it.

Just want to say thanks for that installation link. Used it and was able to do a smooth installation.

Nowavern ... that is strange, as had you followed that guide you couldn't possibly have had a "smooth installation" as it is missing some key instructions, but then I suspect you, and phmo, are simply sock-puppet accounts used for the purpose of generating traffic to the above liked site.

Hehe ... I don't want to start a war in this thread, but what do you mean khayyam ?

What are the missing instructions on that other guide ?

Yes, I am noob on the Gentoo dist and I have used Ubuntu before on the eeepc and that worked fine.
But I want to learn Gentoo, so therefore I installed Gentoo on my eeepc.

phmo,

By following that guide, you miss the point of Gentoo entirely.
You hav likewohas Gentoo. That guide tells you to use a four year old DVD. That's a really bad idea

a) it will give you the heartbleed and shellshock security issues.
b) there are others, thats just two that made internet headlines.
c) it will be very difficult to update such an old install.
d) you have a working Gentoo, sort of, but no idea now to maintain it.

You really need to install properly.

Hi NeddySeagoon !

Thx for your reply !

I chooses 64-bit (AMD64) Gentoo, because I have run ubuntu 64-bit fine on my eeepc before.
My eeepc has 2 cpu's

phmo ... you won't, the fact you ask for clarification is something of a sign that you're not a hit and run spam account.

phmo wrote:

Well, there are a couple of things, downloading the iso after booting the (out of date) liveDVD, the omission of --xattrs when unpacking the stage3, not bind mounting /dev/pts (which oddly is later umount'd), the merging of virtual/ssh. Other issues might include the fact that there is a lot which is included in the official handbook that are omitted (such as pointers re HD controllers, network cards, wpa_supplicant should wireless provide connectivity, etc), and that the author has cut and pasted from the handbook (hence the fact that /dev/pts isn't mounted but when the section on umounting occurs the exact commands from the handbook are provided), and while the handbook is CC-BY-SA-3.0 that guide is CC-BY-NC.

phmo wrote:

That means that I suspected both your accounts were created for the purpose of generating traffic to the above site, so, not genuine users but "sock puppets". This is a lot more common than you might expect, and we see quite a lot of accounts created (often with seemingly genuine questions) that later turn out to be created only for the purposes of generating page hits.

Think of my post, and report, as a test, generally with sock puppet accounts no one would respond to such a challenge, the email account provided was probably bogus, and they would most have probably moved on to other similar sites. So, in such cases we would know what is what, though I may be inclined to think that the Nowavern account may still be as I'd suspected, as the referral link would provide the site with the post which they could then bump with a "thanks" (again, creating traffic).

Ok, I understand all this.

Should I remove the guidelink ?

I will reinstall Gentoo and only follow the proper Gentoomanual.

phmo ... I would, but that still leaves the other quoted post, so prehaps this is a task for moderators.
