Episode 47 Gentoo part 2

Posted in Gentoo at 4:08 pm by ewlabonte

This week I do the second Gentoo episode. I configure and compile the kernel and do some system configuration and finally get to boot into the new gentoo installation. All this takes almost 2 hours. That’s long for a podcast but I wanted to get at least that far by the second episode so that I can cover XWindows installation in the third. I recorded the episode around the time that the mailman comes so you can hear my dog barking in the background for about 10 or 15 minutes. I didn’t realize at the time that the mic would pick it up so clearly. Hopefully it’s not too distracting.

Episode 46 Gentoo part 1

Posted in Gentoo at 5:37 pm by ewlabonte

I begin installing gentoo in this episode with the 2007.0 minimal install cd. This will be the first of several episodes on gentoo because installing gentoo is a bit tricky and takes more time than most distros. I install the stage 3 tarball and download and install portage, the gentoo package system. The episode ends just before I install and configure the kernel. This should be a very educational series of episodes.
