    On my computer it went mad and I think it was cofeemonster who had the same problem, that some thousand lines of weird characters were added... I got a message from portage when I tried "emerge --sync" that make.conf was poorly formatted or something like that, and I got a very nice surprice when I tried "less /etc/make.conf"...

    Hi all,

    If you are willing to not go with a 'pure' Gentoo Linux system, I would suggest Vidalinux. It is based on Gentoo and is essentially a stage 3 install that is tailored for a number of architectures. It uses the anaconda installer from Redhat/Fedora which is an excellent installer in my opinion. Maybe you could try Vidalinux...since it is Gentoo based, it has portage.

    that's weird, that's not the prob i had with mirrorselect.

    Mirrorselect (as it is) worked, it just selected random mirrors that were nowhere near me, and didn't even work as i say lol

    Yes with mirrorselect it gave me gibberish, about 55,000 lines of it on the make.conf file. Thanks for the support guys, Im gonna try again soon, just been real busy. Ive recently bought a linux bible, which has a gentoo easy install in it, for stage1.

    What is the name of the bible you bought, and how much does it cost? Or, a link to said bible.

    Could only get stage3 from the install disc

    LiveCD: Gentoo-LiveCD Universal 2005.0

    My Hard Drive: bash-2.05b$ uname -a
    Linux liberalapotheosis 2.6.11-gentoo-r6 #1 Thu Apr 14 16:31:18 GMT 2005 i686 Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.60GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

    Edit: It's just ass kickery compiling everything from source, gnome has finished...so I just gotta compile kde, k3b and some apps then install nvidia-driver and I can relax.
