Gentoo Installation

This page will group together all package and some configuration to installGentoo.It helps me to keep in mind all package I need.I hope it could be usefull for you.If you search some configuration example, you could also see in "config" part of this blog.

Base system installation :

emerge --sync
emerge portage
emerge system
emerge vim

emerge gentoo-sources
⇒ configuration  du noyau

emerge dhcpcd
emerge grub

Display manager installation :

Speaking for myself, I use GDM because it's easy to choose between KDE,GNOME ... with the same user. 
GDM : emerge gdm
KDM : emerge kdm 

To permit to launch KDM or GDM at startup, you have to do : rc-update add xdm default

If the following error appears : rc-update: service `xdm' does not exist, you should probably install xorg-server : emerge xorg-server.
Then it will be possible to make : rc-update add xdm default

KDE Installation:

emerge kdebase-meta (very long)
emerge kde-base/kdeadmin-meta (package admin tools not mandatory.)
emerge kde-base/kcalc

Kde in french :
emerge kde-base/kde-l10n
vi /usr/share/config/kdm/Xsetup
setxkbmap fr

FLUXBOX Installation :

emerge ccache fluxbox xlockmore eterm commonbox-styles commonbox-styles-extra fluxbox-styles-fluxmod gentoo-artwork conky idesk gentoo gqview

Sound configuration :

gpasswd -a drieu audio
emerge eix pavucontrol
ajouter alsa dans USE du make.conf
emerge --ask --changed-use --deep world
