It's in http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=208499, everyone interested please test and post comments/patches there.

If I have the time I'll try and make it prettier since it'll be the first gentoo contact to new users :)

I'll try to have the linux script by late February for the 2008.0 beta.

Nice work. What do I test it with? Will it work with the 2007.0 release media?

It works with the releases that are compatible with http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/liveusb.xml, I think only 2006.1 is the exception (search this list).

Stop top posting, people! Argh!

The other exception is 2007.0. It was missing the nls modules in the initramfs
that the vfat module required. The modules were built with the kernel and are
available once the CD is fully booted, but that doesn't help with booting from
USB :)


2006.0 is the latest release that this should work with. I'll try to find my USB
stick later and give the script some testing.

This is not top posting... Do I have to explain why?...

It may not be an interesting question but it was a legitimate one and I used my patience to reply to it. I won't however use my patience to be criticized for doing free work and replying uninteresting questions for the good of the community (no offense John, everyone makes them)...

ps: besides install-x86-minimal-2007.0-r1 works for me.

Very nice script. It worked for me with the 700M amd64 2007.0 iso
name livecd-amd64-installer-2007.0.iso. Booted up without problem on
my Dell Inspiron 1720.
Assuming it's not a problem to add the 1.5M for syslinux on the
install cd, this would be a very nice feature to boast about on the
install disc.
