Description Peter Martin 2015-01-01 16:53:55 UTC 
The documentation "Pulling validated portage tree snapshots" does not work without first installing crypt/gnupg.

I have just installed Gentoo using the Handbook:AMD64 (btw: marvelous documentation!) and stumbled on "Pulling validated portage tree snapshots" 

I have followed all steps in the documentation. 
However, the gpg command results in an error. 
Apparently gpg has not been installed yet. 

Maybe a reference to installing gpg using emerge crypt/gnupg like described at could be added to the documentation of "Pulling validated portage tree snapshots"?

I've reported this issue for AMD64.
It might apply for other hardware as well.

Thanks, I've updated the instructions accordingly.
