Hello,

There are many threads how to (cross-) compile Gentoo on RPi2.

But since the HW is always the same, it should be possible to have a "standard" minimal SDcard image?
(something like Arch linux or Raspberrian).

Is somebody maintaining something like that?

Have a look at the section 'Stage 4' here:

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi

(seems to be unmaintained though...)

I was also looking at this, and wish there were a newer update on the guide, or an image for Rasberry Pi's. Or a noobs filesystem you could add to os/Gentoo/

EDIT: I've read some threads in here, and I'm still surprised there's not a standard generic, maybe unofficial image for a Rasberry these days. I tried Rasberian but it seems to struggle with just running twitch.tv and youtubes as far as I noticed. It's maybe better in Kodi, but still, it's taking its pauses for just getting outta menus. So I really need help here. I could try compiling my own within VMs, but it's kind of a huge step for someone not having VM even installed at this point. All I want with this Raspberry is to stream twitch.tv, and have possibilities for ssh/rdp and maybe have it run with "synergy"(mouse across all my PCs).

For me, the fastest way to install Gentoo on RPi2 (and it works) is the Grbd's guide. You just need a the Noobs image in a SD and an USB external disk for the root filesystem. Boot partition and kernel keeps on SD from Noobs, that mean, Raspbian.

It appears all the links above are broken. If I ever get a wish from a Genie I'm going to use it to remove all obsolete how-to's and all broken links from the entire internet. :-)

I did find this though: https://sourceforge.net/projects/gentoo4raspi/
It's a RPi3 image, so that's something. Now if I could just find a functional how to or image for a RPi B+.
I figure if I muddle my way through enough broken how-to guides eventually I'll learn enough about the process of installing Gentoo on a RPi so that I can klugde enough stuff together to get it to work. :-)

So far I'm using:
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi/Quick_Install_Guide

But both are out of date that they don't seem to work as is...

Edit: There is also this: https://sourceforge.net/projects/pastoo/?source=directory
My Italian is terrible though.... YOU LIED TO ME Paul Nobel!!!!! You said it would be easy!! ;-)
[Seriously though Paul is great...]

Aries97,

There is a Pi B (original) BINHOST but no /boot filesystem.
As the /boot filesystem is in git, that's no hardship.

My Pi 1 is rebuilding everything with gcc-7.1 as I write. When its done, in a few days, I'll update the binhost.

I've moved from Pi 1 to Pi 3 64 bit without getting started on Pi 2.
