Networkless Installation or Not?
If you are performing a networkless installation, you also need to copy over all source code from the Universal LiveCD. If not, you should skip this step and continue with Configuring the Compile Options.
Code Listing 16: Copy over source code
# mkdir /mnt/gentoo/usr/portage/distfiles
# cp /mnt/cdrom/distfiles/* /mnt/gentoo/usr/portage/distfiles/
I kept leaving out the -C /mnt/gentoo/usr after I'd typed in the tar -xvjf /mnt/gentoo/portage-20041202.tar.bz2
When I'd got it right, the bit at "Code Listing 16: ...etc" went very smoothly.
dunno if that'll help any?
