Started my own Fiordland builds of Gentoo when stage1 became no longer supported install method in early 2005. I also wrote 3 stage1 install guides using my method, mostly updates, the last one a shell script that performed my method automatically.

You are provided with two packages that will pull in this desktop environment:
 +
* ''gnome'' -- This is the "whole shabang" - pulls in a range of applications made for the gnome desktop environment including a few games, an archive manager, a system monitor, a web browser, a terminal, etc.
 +
* ''gnome-light''
  
I dropped support for my guides in late 2010 when I started using Metro to build my own custom stage3s. I setup my own mirror of the gentoo portage tree on Github as Fiordland. I used that until November 22, 2012 when I update my local metro and lost the ability to build gentoo stages.

To emerge ''gnome-light'' run the following command

<console>
 +
# ##i## emerge --ask gnome-light

</console>
  
I deleted my gentoo mirrior and forked the funtoo prorts-2012 and set up my fiordland branch on it. Late December, 2012 I setup the fiordland-experimental branch as a play ground for further experimentation.
