Gentoo install chroot; Should is say livecd / ?
Hello all,

I've been working on the third attempt at a gentoo install (stage-3) and everything seems to be going well so far.

I just wanted to know if after I :

# chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
# env-update
* Caching service dependencies...
# source /etc/profile

should the prompt still look like:

livecd / #

If not, any ideas on what I did wrong this time?

Thanks for helping!

Looks fine to me. As long as typing cd / gets you to the root of your new installation and not the root of the actually cd your fine.

I'm installing gentoo (stage 1)
before i chroot i have network connection but after i chrooted. This is where my installation stops.

I recieve the reply,
"bash : [command] : command not found"
whenever I execute /bin commands such as ping, route, etc

help please.

chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash
source /etc/profile

You did unpack the stage tarball at some point right? Also make sure you don't forget to copy resolve.conf from /etc to /mnt/gentoo/etc before you chroot (otherwise you'll loose your DNS).

I think that I am going to just try the install from Knoppix. This just need a little more time with it, then I'll go back and do the right install.

Thanks all
