Downloading the stage3 i extract it in the ext4 partition, then installing linux kernel, install portage.
But how is that stage3 created/made?
What is the process to make the base linux system without the kernel and portage.
Can anyone mention the step by step process to do it.

NOTE: I know about LFS process. I'm not talking about LFS. It's about gentoo base system(stage3)

The new system is a child of the older.

In the same way. Generally it is a question of a hen and an egg. Nobody don't know it and if somebody says that knows then it lies. It is same how and with living organisms.

Does that mean it has been created reading the LFS documentation?

I don't think so because our Gentoo is based on the Enoch Linux that was founded earlier that the LFS book was written.

Funny. :roll:

@colag, Gentoo Stages and install media are built by the Release Engineering team with the Catalyst release building tool. This is mostly an automation system that drives Portage to build all of the components of a release, driven by a "spec file". However, since it's predominantly a developer tool, documentation is rather sparse. It's not too inscrutable, though. I was able to build my own minimal install CD with ZFS filesystem support in the kernel with a moderate amount of work.

Hello,

There is a document here : http://dev.gentoo.org/~vapier/PORTING-HOWTO

In big idea, you need at least gcc, python, to install manyally portage

Then generate stage 1
Code:
ROOT=/mnt/gentoo emerge -1kav $(grep -v '#' /usr/portage/default/linux/packages.build)


then you can chroot into it and continue the procedure (old Gentoo doc, installing from stage 1)
