Installing Portage From Snapshot

This page shows you another way to get the latest Portage tree from within your install chroot.

To use this method, you download a snapshot snapshots from inside the chroot, extract it to the /usr directory, use git to activate the funtoo.org branch, and then run emerge --sync to quickly download the very latest updates to the tree:

root # cd /usr
root # wget https://upload.funtoo.org/funtoo-current/snapshots/portage-latest.tar.xz
root # tar xf portage-latest.tar.xz 
root # rm portage-latest.tar.xz
root # cd /usr/portage
root # git checkout funtoo.org
root # emerge --sync

This method uses wget (HTTP) to grab the vast majority of data and could be faster or more reliable for some users.
