I am aware of this, as python is not designed to be usable on the CD.
Comment 2 Paul Malherbe 2005-08-15 11:44:29 UTC
This seems to be inconsistant as python was available and did work on 2005.0
In fact, based on this, we wrote installation scripts in python which now will
not execute.
Comment 3 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-08-15 11:53:09 UTC

I have no intention on making it work on the InstallCD images, as it is not
required for doing a normal Gentoo installation.  The minimal InstallCD is
exactly that.  Python being functional in 2005.0 was probably more of an
accident than anything else.  If you require a complete and working python
environment, then I would suggest using the LiveCD image instead, as it is
designed for this purpose.
