The LiveDVD is available in two flavors: a hybrid x86/x86_64 version, and an x86_64 multilib version. The livedvd-x86-amd64-32ul-11.0 version will work on 32-bit x86 or 64-bit x86_64. If your CPU architecture is x86, then boot with the default gentoo kernel. If your arch is amd64 boot with the gentoo64 kernel. This means you can boot a 64bit kernel and install a customized 64bit userland while using the provided 32bit userland. The livedvd-amd64-multilib-11.0 version is for x86_64 only.

Please select your architecture to be redirected to a mirror for download:

Please read the FAQ on using the LiveDVD.

We have also started a discussion thread in our forum. Please post any bugs you encounter.

Thank you for your continued support,
Gentoo Linux Developers, the Gentoo Linux Foundation, and the Gentoo-Ten Project.
