Starting X after gentoo stage 3 install and some more Q's
after 2-3 weeks play with mandrake 10, I decided to install gentoo ( on a separate HDD, after disconnecting my "production" HHD's)because of the claimed control and efficiency. I followed the installation guide to the letter using a stage 3 tarball. all went more or less well and I ended at a prompt. From there can anybody point me in the right direction as to how to install a desktop manager ( KDE ) things like startx does not work.
I also tried to mount a cdrom by typing
mount /dev/cdroms/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1
or something along those lines, to no avail. I must certainly have messed up somewhere.. please give me a hint..
I 'm not sure but why do you have to sort of re-map the directories etc..( the part where you chroot.. Is it because you are quitting the livecd environment and going on the HDD itself?
A few more Q's
Does Mandrake or othe linuxes have the USE command that gentoo has?
Can I "optimize" mandrake only for KDE for example?
Do RPM's work on Gentoo?
I am doing network less install and have latest snapshot on cdrom.. how do I install it?
Thank you for your help
