I would like to install Gentoo using a stage 1 tarball. How would I go about doing this; the Gentoo guide gives instructions for stage 3 now. Any extensive guide is appreciated.

Thank you !

This has been asked and answered ad nauseum.
Stage1 installs are definitely and absolutely unsupported because they are a total waste of time.
Feel free to waste your time any way you like but wasting others' is not so nice :)

The best that we can do today is to run this after downloading a Stage 3:

Code:

# emerge -e system


This will do a Stage 2 actually if you change your Cflags.

Indeed. See What exactly happened to stage 1? And bootstrapping? and the FAQ linked above.

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Duplicate Threads.
