Gentoo Linux test image
#8
Glad to see some other Gentoo users running it on the Pine.
After stumbling across this thread this morning I did my own install on my A64+ 2GB board.

i didn't end up using your image. i just downloaded the base Debian image with longsleep's current kernel on it, booted into that, and used it as an install disk.
Worked fine. I'm still using that kernel, with root and swap on a usb hosted SSD. 

Should i ever need to get back into Debian, I can boot with the original uEnv.txt that I backed up.

It's still updating world after a portage sync. 

Next thing I want to try is try to get longsleeps building environment working on it and compile the kernel natively.
Then get X working. Sounds like longsleep has made some progress on acceleration working, at least for video decoding. I haven't read the threads enough to know how far he's gotten.
Last time I checked in (at initial ship time) any acceleration was a distant , if ever, thing.

Update: Ahh I see only video decode acceleration is possible at this time, oh well. X acceleration would be great, but the obstacles seem firmly in place.
