On a different thread, NeddySeagoon kindly pointed to this wiki page,
User:NeddySeagoon/Pi3 Build Root
Rather that divert that thread, I am continuing here.
I have a raspberry pi that my daughter sent me for Christmas a year or two ago. She had Debian installed on it, but I replaced it with Sakaki's Gentoo.
I started a proof of concept of a VLC replacement with a UI of my liking (large print text instead of icons) based on wxwidgets universal filesystem widget.

I set that aside after proving the concept with example code and never got back to it. In the other thread I was intrigued by the concept of building packages on a Ryzen chroot for the pi.

I'm hazy on the different ARM architectures. I think this is a Pi 3B but I'm not sure.

First off, what is this architecture version?
Code:
raspy ~ # lscpu
Architecture:        aarch64
Byte Order:          Little Endian
CPU(s):              4
On-line CPU(s) list: 0-3
Thread(s) per core:  1
Core(s) per socket:  4
Socket(s):           1
Vendor ID:           ARM
Model:               4
Model name:          Cortex-A53
Stepping:            r0p4
CPU max MHz:         1200.0000
CPU min MHz:         600.0000
BogoMIPS:            38.40
Flags:               fp asimd evtstrm crc32 cpuid

Do I proceed with https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/User:NeddySeagoon/Pi3_Build_Root#Setting_Up_An_Aarch64_Chroot_For_a_Pi_3
Is it a 3B? How can I tell?

Maybe this helps.

Indeed it does!

Code:
raspy ~ # cat /sys/firmware/devicetree/base/model
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2


Can I run a regular wireless keyboard instead of the little control that comes with the pi? It's cute but awkward for old fingers.

Tony0945,

Its Gentoo ... run whatever you want, with the proviso that you can make arm64 support work.
Most stuff not keyworded is simply not tested. Don't be afraid to keyword stuff. Someone has to be first.

Moved from Gentoo on Alternative Architectures to Gentoo on ARM.

Its arm64 related, that counts as arm.
