2 The only difference is about hardware, You have less cpu less memory and a very simple vga and sound card.
1 For help how to install it here is the official guide http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-...ickinstall.xml
But this and arch is the most difficult distro. Try arch first and then gentoo in my opinion

In order to help you you must refer to the problem that occurs. It dispays an error code like error 1000 for examplem, it displays smt like io/error xxxxxx for example or it crashes-reboot-turns the monitor black???? As i can see that is installed in 5 minutes and it is very easy. So tell us what happens and it doesn't get install.

Have you actually read and understood the link in AlucardZero's signature?

Try to understand that it's not easy to help you if we don't know where the problem lies.
Where are you stuck? Can you post the exact error that you get? These are the things we'll need to know to help you. Saying that there are a lot of errors or that you THINK it's something to do with desktop environment is not really useful. Unless you're specific in your description of the problem, you're likely to get some sarcastic replies (like my previous reply), or people will ignore the thread.

What have you done so far? Where are you stuck? What errors do you get?

As i can see this is the process to install this

Boot options¶
Before booting from LiveCD you will see the boot menu. Use F1-F5 keys for navigate in menu.

•F1 Help
•F2 Language - Available: Russian, Ukrainian, English, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Italian, Polish and French.
•F3 Keymap - Select your keyboard. If you have chosen language in the previous item, you can skip this item.
•F4 Timezone - Specify this option to set local time zone.
•F5 Video - screen resolution. In most cases this parameter can be skipped.
•Tab Edit options - Edit the kernel boot line. For experienced users.
These boot parameters will be used later for installation of the system.

Partitioning¶
Depending on the distribution after booting the computer you can use different programs for partitioning.
CDS, CLS, CLSG: fdisk, cfdisk
CLD: KDE Partition Manager, fdisk, cfdisk
CLDX: Gnome Partition Editor, fdisk, cfdisk

You can also use auto-partitioning with the installer.
WARNING: In this case all data on your hard drive will be destroyed.
Example:


calculate -d /dev/sda

Main parameters
--disk=/dev/sda2 - root partition for installation (partition _sda2 will be offered by default);_
--set-format=reiserfs (ext4, ext3, ext2, xfs, jfs) - file system of the root partition;
--set-composite=on (off) - composite mode;
--set-type=hdd (flash, usb-hdd) - data medium type, need to be installed only in the case of wrong detection.

Additional parametres
--set-hostname=linux - the computer network name, by default is 'calculate';
--set-video_resolution=1280x1024 (1024x768, 1152x864, 1280x800 и etc.) - screen resolution, need to be installed if it was defined incorrectly;
--set-mbr=off - not to change MBR;
--set-erase=off - not to fulfil partition formatting before installation;
--set-march=i686 (x86_64) - to install the distribution kit for 32 or the 64-bit architecture of the processor, this is not actual for installation from CD.

Have you done this? In which part the problem appears?

Basically only one foto i can see but in the attached fotos i can see that the problem is not from Linux but from win Virtual box!!! It says that it doesn't have enough memory so you must give more memory to your virtual machine in order to complete your installation. If you don't have more memory to give you SHOULD upgrate your pc or forget virtual machine. What's your pc memory and how memory did you give to the virtual machine????
