Installing Gentoo using
The installation process is almost entirely automated, though will require user input for many sections to simplify the script as well as make it more versatile.
- Read the entire script, I may do things you won't like or want.
- Download and boot the Gentoo livecd of your choosing.
- Configure and mount your partitions.
cd /mnt/gentoo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jcmdln/gein/master/gein
# Initialize/Bootstrap the Gentoo installation. sh /mnt/gentoo/gein -i # From the new chroot, install the Gentoo base. sh gein -b
From here you can either reboot into the base system, or install additional utilities via the following options.
# Install Desktop packages sh gein -d # Install Laptop packages sh gein -l # Install Server packages sh gein -s # If you want to trim the total size of the installation, you may run # the following to "safely" remove non-vital cruft. sh gein -c
- I've automated the creation of a 2G swapfile during the installation
process, so remove this file when the installation is complete and
/etc/fstabto use your desired swap partition or simply don't make a swap partition.
- I'm lazy and haven't fully automated installing Grub, so if you're
using UEFI then read the script and adjust
Boot_Grub()to your liking.
- The total size of this installation, even after running
gein -c, is still rather large at roughly 1.5gb or so.
- There may be other lingering issues, please report them if possible.
