Sometimes, you'll see a build directory and the only stage in it will be a stage3. In this case, we did not do a full rebuild of the stage, but instead used a special "freshen" build mode that simply updates an earlier stage in-place. The build server typically alternates between full stage 1/2/3 and "freshen" builds.
Also note that snapshots are available - both stable and current Funtoo builds use the same Portage snapshots.
You use the Funtoo Portage snapshot tarball in the exact same way that you use a standard Gentoo Portage snapshot tarball - during the install process, you want to extract the contents to /usr (/mnt/gentoo/usr from the LiveCD) so that the /usr/portage directory is created. For .xz decompression, the
--use-compress-program=xz option may be required. If your LiveCD doesn't have xz available, then you'll need to get one that has xz available or download xz to the livecd.
Directory structure on mirrors
/ | +-- funtoo-current --+-- snapshots | +-- sparc-64bit | +-- x86-32bit | +-- x86-64bit | +-- funtoo-stable --+--....
The very first level of the tree is either 'funtoo-stable' or 'funtoo-current'. Each one of those directories offers several subdirectories corresponding to architectures supported by Funtoo (e.g. sparc-64bit, x86-32bit...) plus an additional subdirectory named snapshots which contains several (timestamped) recent archives of the Funtoo portage tree.
...-- x86-32bit --+--- i686 --+-- 2011-02-04 | +-- 2011-02-08 | +-- 2011-02-11 | +--- pentium4 --+-- 2011-01-29 +-- 2011-01-08 ...
Each top-level architecture directory contains several subdirectories corresponding to the CPU model in the architecture (e.g. pentium4 in the above example) called a "subarchitecture," each of which contains a number of subdirectories in YYYY-MM-DD format -- year in 4 digits, dash, month in 2 digits, dash, day of month in 2 digits. Every present subdirectory represent a build date for which the stages within were built for that subarchitecture. In those YYYY-MM-DD directories you will find the stages themselves:
...-- x86-32bit --+--- i686 --+-- 2011-02-11 --+-- stage1-i686-funtoo-current-2011-02-11.tar.xz +-- stage3-i686-funtoo-current-2011-02-11.tar.xz
Footnotes and references
- Visual Instruction Set (VIS) extensions have been disabled (-no-vis) in all of those stages.VIS is an extension of the SPARC V9 specification present since the Sun UltraSPARC I and the Fujitsu SPARC64 GP processors. Subsequent revision of this extension exists (e.g. VIS 2 in UltraSPARC III).
- OpenVZ is supported on this processor.
