I'm trying to install Gentoo on a virtual machine (VirtualBox installed on my debian squeeze).
My connexion at home is veeery slow, so I wanted to do it at work (don't judge me!), the thing is I' behinf a proxy.
I tried the command
but couldn't ping anything.
On the other hand, when i use
links www.google.com -http-proxy host:port
So i was able to download the stage3 file and start preparing the system, but I have some troubles when it comes to use the provided tools (the tool to add a mirror can't retrieve the list for example, and I guess I could not emerge anything either)
Any idea why the export thing doesn't work, or what I did wrong?
