Subject: [gentoo-dev] bootstrapping instructions

1 Due to a change that drobbins made in, there is a slight
2 change in the process of getting a build image up and going.
4 During the bootstrap phase, editing /etc/make.conf before running
5 won't work. So what you have to do is first manually set
6 your USE, CHOST, CFLAGS, and CXXFLAGS at the command prompt. So for a
7 pentium pro class machine you would do this (assuming the bash shell):
8 # export USE="slang readline gpm berkdb gdbm tcpd ..."
9 # export CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
10 # export CFLAGS="-mcpu=i686 -march=i686 -O3 -pipe"
11 # export CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
12 # scripts/ files/bootstrap-foo.packages
14 After the bootstrap process is finished, then you can edit
15 /etc/make.conf and complete the process, per the build doc.
17 One note: do not use the the "linux" ebuilds! use the "linux-sources"
18 ebuilds and make menuconfig. We will get the configuration in a more
19 sane state eventually, but right now, you must check it very carefully
20 to ensure it will work with your system. In particular, ATA support
21 needs to be built in if you want to boot off of an IDE drive.
