7 |people have a graphic environment and/or access to www and irc in the
8 |setup process (as stated by Faust Tanasescu in a later post). The
9 |resulting stage4 tarball was about 100M larger than the stage3 one. A
10 CD
11 |with stage1 (ix86), stage2 (ix86, i586, i686), stage3 (i586, i686) and
12 |stage4 (i586, i686) would take less than 800M (in the case it can't fit
13 |on a CD, one of the stage4 versions could be stripped).

15 |I've installed the packages right over a chroot with
16 |stage3-i[56]86-1.3a.tbz2, export USE="-gnome -java" (to avoid mozilla
17 |install a JVM and xchat install gnome dependencies) and emerge xfree
18 |fluxbox mozilla xchat links ircssi nvi gpm gentoolkit

20 |Do you think it's a good thing to provide such stage4 tarball
21 |officially?
23 i think that the xserver don't is useful in th einstalation, and can
24 remove mozilla for links, and remove al x-based apps, Maybe the svglib an
25 gpm, and mc, it can be sufficent
