- If you want to see if your package is included we have generated both the x86 package list, and amd64 package list. The FAQ is located at FAQ. DVD cases and covers for the 20140826 release are located at Artwork. Persistence mode is back in the 20140826 release!
The LiveDVD is available in two flavors: a hybrid x86/x86_64 version, and an x86_64 multi-lib version. The livedvd-x86-amd64-32ul-20140826 version will work on 32-bit x86 or 64-bit x86_64. If your CPU architecture is x86, then boot with the default gentoo kernel. If your arch is amd64, boot with the gentoo64 kernel. This means you can boot a 64-bit kernel and install a customized 64-bit user land while using the provided 32-bit user land. The livedvd-amd64-multilib-20140826 version is for x86_64 only.
If you are ready to check it out, let our bouncer direct you to the closest x86 image or amd64 image file.
