Introduction

Here, I host a collection of Gentoo stage4 templates. With these you can quickly deploy gentoo on a new system without having to complete the entire Gentoo Handbook.

Installation

First become root:
   # su
Mount the filesystem where you want to install Gentoo:
  # mkdir /mnt/gentoo
  # mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/gentoo
  # mkdir /mnt/gentoo/boot
  # mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt/gentoo/boot
Change to the root of the new installation
  # cd /mnt/gentoo
Download the latest stage4 install:
  # wget "http://nathanshearer.com/modules/core/home/1/Gentoo Templates/20140915-amd64.tar.gz"
Extract the tarball
  # tar xvzpf 20140915-amd64.tar.gz
Update /etc/fstab and /etc/lilo.conf
  # vi /etc/fstab
  # vi /etc/lilo.conf
Instal lilo
  # lilo -b /dev/sdb
Unmount the new installation
  # umount -l /mnt/gentoo/* /mnt/gentoo
  # sync
