- I don't understand. Please clarify. If this page is missing information please be specific. --Maffblaster (talk) 22:04, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
- Article say "On the installation CD, several kernels are provided. The default one is called gentoo. Other kernels are for specific hardware needs and the -nofb variants disable framebuffer support. The next section gives a short overview of the available kernels and their descriptions: Kernel choices"
- I think what we were running into here was an antiquated reference to older installation media that may have included many kernels. Perhaps before I got involved with Gentoo it is possible the release engineering project used to ship two separate kernels (maybe a 32-bit kernel and a 64-bit kernel). I have updated the reference now. If it needs further editing, please reopen with additional suggestions. Kind regards, --Maffblaster (talk) 21:23, 15 May 2017 (UTC)
No possible to set usb-flash as primary bootable device if it detached.
"Once the installation CD is burned, it is time to boot it. Remove all external bootable media from the system (including any CD/DVD disks or USB drives), reboot the system, and enter the motherboard's firmware user interface."
- Once the installation media is ready, it is time to boot it. Place (ugly world (attach?)) the installation media to the system, reboot the system, and enter the motherboard's firmware user interface.
"Now place the installation CD in the CD-ROM drive and reboot. A boot prompt should be shown."
- A boot promt....
And hereinafter by text - replace "installation CD" with "installation media"
- I've rephrased the first sentence. However,
promptis the correct terminology here. I updated many references from CD to medium/media, except where we talk about the "Minimal Installation CD" as that is the (now perhaps wrong, but still used) name of that image (the name is also in use outside the wiki). --SwifT (talk) 16:48, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
