A Week with Gentoo 2006.1: Day 2

Filed under
Gentoo

Operating on the assumption that I was using a bad DVD burn, I downloaded the Gentoo 2006.1 LiveCD x86, Gentoo 2006.1 LiveCD AMD64, and the manual installation mini disc. I plan on getting this bad boy installed!

First up, the x86 LiveCD. I followed the same path I went down on day 1: boot the LiveCD, and try the GTK+ installer first. The one difference is that I decided to use a Stage3 tarball from an internet mirror, not the one on the CD. I chose the Georgia Tech mirror, since I have downloaded from there before, and know it to be fast and problem free.

And then the system hardlocked.Ok, so that isn't going to work.

Full Story.
