hi;
i have the latest RC2 full iso (600meg).
i followed the steps in the new guide (http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-x86-install.xml)
i reached the stage where i enter env_update (9.2) , and it fails ,saying that "emerge sync" will probably fix that . i contiune till i reached "emerge sync" , but it fails.
I must say that i'm installing from the CD , no internet access.
how do i "force" emerge sync on the CD data ?
thanks
tiran.
p.s.
this is not the first time i'm trying to install "gentoo" ,last time i waited for a new release ,still i get the same error. (last time i tried to install using the "live" procedure.

The install was not exactly designed to be done without an internet connection. However, you can gownload a stage3 and kernel, set those up, restart and hopefully have an internet connection.
