Question Installation problem


Hi.

I decided to try install Gentoo. I've downloaded and burned LiveCD but when I boot from it it says that X Window system won't start. And that X Server is not working or something like that. I have MacBook.

Does someone know what shall I do?

Which LiveCD did you download? They are not supported anymore [as it says on the download page]. You must do a minimal stage3 install from the weekly iso builds.

I downloaded it from here:
You're right. They are not supported anymore. But on my brother's computer it work.

So I should download weekly iso for x86?
And what then? Is there any good web page with instructions, because I can't find one?
