I finished first part of writing scripts of automatic gentoo installation -- they install OS, and needed packages, so you can leave it for night and
next morning you will have working system.
Of course there is work to be done, but it's if someone else will find usefullness in them too, i would be happy
I tested installation on virtualbox with efi set to on. My installation took 251 minutes (in virtualbox) with 7 cores and 6+gigs of RAM supplied to VM.
To run installation, you sould download (through wget or links) script download_scripts.sh, which
will download the rest. After that cd to installation folder and run partitioning.sh, supplying it block device where you want install Gentoo.
Scripts will do the rest. There are some points where they await user input, but if it is not supplied in time, they will follow some defaults to be fully
Special thanks to user egrep, who suggested to add timeouts to wget downloads and exit on error
If you have any suggestions, i would love to hear them.
