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 [http://www.sysresccd.org/ 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:

{{Important|'''NO VIDEO''': We have patched our download of System Rescue CD so that it should initialize video properly when booting from UEFI (See {{bug|FL-2030}}.) If you are using the official, non-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 developers.}}

Install Guide: Download LiveCD

Install Guide, Chapter 1 < Prev Next >

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 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:

To copy it to a USB stick for booting, use the following command:

root # dd if=funtoo-livecd-area31-5.1-beta.iso of=/dev/sdx bs=4k status=progress

Of course, you will need to change /dev/sdx to point to the block device of the USB stick on your system.

Network Access

Once you have booted the Area31 Funtoo LiveCD, see if you have Internet access. Internet access is required for installing Funtoo Linux:

root # ping www.google.com
PING www.google.com (216.58.217.36) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from den03s10-in-f4.1e100.net (216.58.217.36): icmp_seq=1 ttl=57 time=30.1 ms

If the ping is successful (you see 64 bytes 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 nmtui command-line tool:

root # nmtui

Remote Install

Alternatively, you can log into 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.

If you'd like to complete the install remotely, here's how. First, you will need to ensure that the Area31 LiveCD has a functioning network connection. Then, you will need to set a root password for the Area31 Funtoo LiveCD:

root # passwd
New password: ********
Retype new password: ********
passwd: password updated successfully

Once you have typed in a password, you will now need to determine the IP address of the LiveCD, and then you can use ssh to connect to it. To determine the IP address currently being used by the LiveCD, type ifconfig:

root # ifconfig

Alternatively, determining of an IP address is possible with iproute2 ip tool:

root # ip addr show

One of the interfaces should have an IP address (listed as 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 1.2.3.4 with the IP address of the LiveCD. Connecting from an existing Linux or MacOS system would look something like this:

remote system $ ssh root@1.2.3.4
Password: **********
   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 OpenSSH.

After you've logged in via SSH, you're now connected remotely to the LiveCD and can perform the installation steps.
