Hi, ALL,
I'm trying to perform another Gentoo installation.
Everything was fine up until I needed to fetch the Portage. Using "emerge-webrsync" failed continuously with the error "File not found".

So, I exited chroot environment and perform manual download of the snapshot with links.

Unfortunately for some reason "The Handbook" is missing the command to unpack the Portage tree and I already forgot what it was.

Could someone please put this command here, please?

Thank you in advance.

[EDIT]
It appears that I'm not the only one with such issue: look here.

or within the chroot ...
Code:
# tar -xjpvf portage-latest.tar.bz2 -C /usr
