From Funtoo
Jump to: navigation, search

Toshiba NB505 installation.

I am installing from Crunchbang waldorf (based on Debian Wheezy).

First, I create a logical volume called "funtoo" that is 10 Gigabytes large in the volume group "toshiba".

"sudo lvcreate -nfuntoo -L10G toshiba"

Now, this logical volume can be access via its handle "/dev/mapper/toshiba-funtoo".

So what's next... I format it with the ext4 file-system.

"sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/mapper/toshiba-funtoo"

Then I create a mount-point. In this case, I will mount my funtoo logical volume on /mnt/funtoo.

"sudo mkdir /mnt/funtoo"

Next, I will set permissions on this logical volume (so that my $username can read/write to the volume).

In my case, let $myusername be 'daisuke'. "sudo chown daisuke:daisuke /mnt/funtoo"

Then, i download a stage 3 tarball of funtoo from one of their mirrors to a folder called "backup" in my crunchang installation's home directory "~/". "wget $urltostage3tarball ~/backup" In my case, $urltostage3tarball is ""

Then, I untar this file into /mnt/funtoo. First I put myself into the target directory (/mnt/funtoo), then I untar the stage3 file. "cd /mnt/funtoo && sudo tar xvJpf ~/backup/$stage3tarballfilename" In my case, $stage3tarballfilename = "stage3-latest.tar.xz"

After that... Uhh.. we gotta chroot into this new installation..first, I gotta mount some stuff. "sudo mount -l proc /proc /mnt/funtoo/proc && sudo mount --rbind /dev /mnt/funtoo/dev && sudo mount --rbind /sys /mnt/funtoo/sys" Then.. copy my wifi dns-resolve info "sudo cp -L /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/funtoo/etc/resolv.conf" Then..chroot "sudo chroot /mnt/funtoo /bin/bash" BAM!

And, until next time.. I'm done. Gotta get out of this cafe.
