What area does it fail in?
Curious, why are you trying to do a networkless install?
It failed during copying files.
And I have checked the md5 sum..
And I need to install it without inet since it only has a wifi card.
Since I never installed wifi on a linux system Id like to have a fully working system just before I start "playing" with wifi.
I know there is a way to do what you are asking(emerging the files from the cd), but I can't remember the details.
There is always the Alternative guide.
Installing from a livecd such as Mepis, Knoppix or Sabayon is really great.
As you can surf the net or play games while stuff is compiling.
All 3 of those livecds have great wireless support.
The answer to your original question is in the faqs
Building a Gentoo system while using a livecd won't put anything extra on your pc.
being a minimalast, using the Sabayon livecd for anything other than installation of Gentoo would definitely not be of any use to you as Sabayon is bloated.
Did it stop at "dev-lang/perl"?
I tried 2 separate discs, an older 1 I had form when 2007.0 amd64 came out, and a freshly downloaded version of 2007.0 amd64, both stopped at dev-lang/perl.
But I was able to install using the regular 32-bit version, just selecting "i686" on both the 2006.1 and 2007.0 versions.
All networkless installs.
Just curious, what kind of wireless card do you have?
