    Hello,

    You already have 3 partitions that's why fdisk doesn't ask you to extend or primary. I can't say about moving gentoo from virtual disk to real disk but you can copy one disk to another using "dd" command over ssh.

    You have a gateway lt3103u netbook:
    amd athlon64
    690g chipset
    atheros t77h121_hb95 wifi
    ati 1270 vga
    realtek ALC272 sound
    sata hdd
    no cdrom
    realtek RTL8103EL lan

    Right?

    And you have problems with instaling gentoo from livecd 2008.0
    - sound
    - lan
    - wifi
    Right?

    Did you try to install gentoo from weekly minimal cd?

    Can you post the output of
    Code:
    lspci -v
    command when you try to install gentoo from livecd?

    no i have created the partitions and when i am creating them fdisk didnt ask anything about extend or anything thats why i cant be sure that which partition primary or not.

    when i open from usb stick weekly gentoo i typed lspci -v it was really big list


    when i open with weekly gentoo it knows the all my drivers sound,lan,wifi everything is okey

    Well, if you have any doubts about fdisk I would recomend you to boot your netbook from partedmagic livecd. You can check your partitions and if you wish recreate it.

    Hi,

    I never try it so I'm not really in a position to comment.

    From an old version of the handbook each stage tarball pros and cons.

    I suggest you do a regular handbook install using a stage3 tarball and get used to using Gentoo. Since Gentoo is a rolling release distro you only need to install once, then sync your system and do updates as often as you like (subject to sync policy ... don't sync more than once a day).

    Gentoo documentation is good, and you should be able to sort most issues using a combination of the handbook, documentation on the Gentoo website and the forums. If you are talking about USE flags then take a look at the sticky thread in the forums on this ...

    ... if you intend learning about Linux through the install process then I suggest you refer to old versions of the handbook (see earlier post) and the documents on the Gentoo website here - you might also want to take a look at the information provided with Linux From Scratch ... good luck with your install ...
