We recommend the Funtoo-based [ Area31 Funtoo LiveCD (1.5GB download)] as it contains a modern kernel as well as a full graphical environment. It can be burned to CD/DVD or installed on a USB stick. Download it here:
In order to install Funtoo Linux, you will first need to boot your computer using a Linux-based Live CD or USB stick. We recommend the Gentoo-based [ System Rescue CD] as it contains lots of tools and utilities and supports both 32-bit and 64-bit systems. It can be burned to CD/DVD or installed on a USB stick. Download it here: * Download from '''[ funtooArea31 Funtoo LiveCD (1.org5GB download)]''' <!--T:24-->To copy it to a USB stick for booting, use the following command:
{{Important|'''NO VIDEO'''<!--T: We have patched our download of System Rescue CD so that it should initialize video properly when booting from UEFI (See 25-->{{bugconsole|FLbody=# ##i##dd if=funtoo-livecd-area31-2030}}5.) If you are using the official, non1-Funtoo System Rescue CD, at the GRUB menu, you may need to press {{c|e}} to edit the menu entry and add a GRUB boot line that reads {{c|insmod all_video}} and then boot. This bug has been reported upstream to System Rescue CD developersbeta.iso of=/dev/sdx bs=4k status=progress}}
<!--T:26-->Of course, you will need to change {{Notec|If using an older version of System Rescue CD, '''be sure /dev/sdx}} to point to select the <code>rescue64</code> kernel at block device of the boot menu if you are installing a 64-bit USB stick on your system'''. By default, System Rescue CD used to boot in 32-bit mode though the latest version attempts to automatically detect 64-bit processors.}}
==== Network Access ==== <!--T:4-->
<!--T:5-->Once you have booted System Rescue CDthe Area31 Funtoo LiveCD, see if you have Internet access. Internet access is required for installing Funtoo Linux:
# ##i##ping
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=57 time=30.1 ms}}
If the ping is successful (you see <code>64 bytes</code> messages as above,) then your Network is set up. Hit Control-C to stop the ping.
If you need to set up a WiFi connection for Internet access, then this can be accomplished using the {{c|nmtui}} command-line tool:
# ##i##nmtui
==== Remote Install ==== <!--T:10-->
<!--T:11-->Alternatively, you can log into System Rescue CD Area31 Funtoo LiveCD over the network via SSH to perform the install from another computer, and this may be more convenient way to install Funtoo Linux.
<!--T:12-->If you'd like to complete the install remotely, here's how. First, you will need to ensure that System Rescue CD the Area31 LiveCD has a functioning network connection. Then, you will need to set a root password for System Rescue CDthe Area31 Funtoo LiveCD:
###i## passwd
<!--T:14-->Once you have typed in a password, you will now need to determine the IP address of System Rescue CDthe LiveCD, and then you can use {{c|ssh}} to connect to it. To determine the IP address currently being used by System Rescue CDthe LiveCD, type {{c|ifconfig}}:
###i## ifconfig
Alternatively, determining of an IP address is possible with iproute2 {{c|ip}} tool:
###i## ip addr show
<!--T:18-->One of the interfaces should have an IP address (listed as {{c|inet addr:}}) from your LAN. You can then connect remotely, from another system on your LAN, to System Rescue CD, and perform steps from the comfort of an existing OS. On your remote system, type the following, replacing {{c|}} with the IP address of System Rescue CDthe LiveCD. Connecting from an existing Linux or MacOS system would look something like this:
(%$remote system) $ % ##i##ssh root@
Password: ##i##**********}}
<!--T:20-->{{Note|If you'd like to connect remotely from an existing Microsoft Windows system, you'll need to download an SSH client for Windows, such as [http PuTTYopenssh_install_firstuse OpenSSH].}}
<!--T:21-->After you've logged in via SSH, you're now connected remotely to System Rescue CD the LiveCD and can perform the installation steps.</translate><noinclude>{{InstallNavigation|num=1|prev=Introduction|next=Prepare Disk|align=right}}</noinclude>
