http://feedproxy.google.com – Hey frens, I am trying to install gentoo using minimal CD and going step by step reading its official installation document http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...?part=1&chap=5 Everything was smooth till chapter-4,but in chapter-5 when I downloaded the stage-3 tarball and tried .. # md5sum -c portage-latest.tar.bz2.md5sum it gave me #md5sum:portage-latest.tar.bz2.md5sum:No such file or directory. Prob1:Is it a wrong tarball?? I have been following the exacts commands as per the instuctions given. Also after extracting the tarball and on step # nano -w /mnt/gentoo/etc/make.conf Prob2:I am not able to find make.conf file,in fact there is no /gentoo/etc I am using vmware 6 workstation. While installation I had an improper shutdown,but I was able to save the session till the 5th chapter. where things went wrong? TIA. Cheers!! (HowTos)
