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!
Eric.

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.

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
Eric.
