Gentoo on Pinebook Pro RELEASE

@madalin to clarify, glamor is only disabled in wayland. This is because the panfrost driver was bugging out, causing Xwayland to crash - I think this is actually fixed in the 5.5 Kernel now, but haven't had a chance to test it. You can force enable it with the glamor useflag

Haven't experimented with anything else then 5.5, but do you have any mandatory reason to need Xwayland?

I am currently experimenting in getting the best of what I need running only on Wayland, and seems that I am getting some good results.

Xwayland is needed for some applications like GIMP - with glamor enabled, it just crashes, or at least it did pre-5.5 . Is this fixed now? I don't have the wayland useflag enabled right now, so recompiling that would take some time. If so, I'll remove the custom xorg ebuild

This crash is fixed with the kernel supplied by Manjaro (5.5-rc7). The official 5.5 release has those fixes as well.
GIMP doesn't crash under Xwayland and the other X application that I keep around is HexChat - it's no longer slow as hell. NetBeans and a few others are a lot faster and don't have that signature black sections (at least not as often).

Adding a minor fork'age to prepair either rp64 or rp64pro might be of some use also.

as https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/chromiumos-build

still leaves a gentoo alike system but things are likely to start to break as packages are replaced in gentoo being ported atop.

as well RPI:4 or rockpro-64 i can make a chroot builder .. RPI4 gentoo Sakaki has a number of prebuilt binhost/bins i can rob...

RPI4 Distcc slave should be of use..

unfortunalty if these had more a common base firmware then just uboot/grub uefi loaders could make images more common to these.

@JaceAlvejetti just to be clear, you are talking about the pinebookpro-manjaro-sources ebuild? It should copy the manjaro config to .config (which is NOT the pinebookpro_defconfig).
You can find the config in /var/db/repos/pinebookpro-overlay/sys-kernel/pinebookpro-manjaro-sources/files , or /var/lib/layman/pinebookpro-overlay/sys-kernel/pinebookpro-manjaro-sources/files if you're still on the layman version.
An error on module install is... interesting, can't think of any reason why that'd happen.
As for the boot process... yeah, I want to make an ebuild for that, but haven't had any time this week. Didn't call this a beta release for no reason
However /srv/packages or /packages works.
You can rig in make.conf..
Distdir defacto, can rig too..
Ie a rw nfs share comes to mind.. save build room on devices from servers..

Or play the bind mount game to usr portage..

Ive just symbolic linked gento repo back as Portage..

As profile snafu during migration..

As an Gentoo enthusiastic I wanted to give this a try, when chrooted into the stage3 tarball and running the prepare.sh script on my laptop through qemu I ran into some errors. Basically the steps in the script fail one by one. Am I missing something here.

Here is the output:

Code:
/var/tmp/gentoo-pinebookpro # ./prepare.sh
detected init=openrc
applied fix for sddm login
applied optimal settings to make.conf
installed gles2 profile patches
NOTE: this will disable OpenGL acceleration in place of gles2!

It seems like your qemu does not work correctly - is it an amd64 host? One user reported success with qemu, but I never tried it myself
See these errors
qemu: qemu_thread_create: Invalid argument
Unable to configure loopback interface: Operation not supported

/bin/ln: failed to create symbolic link '/etc/runlevels/default/zram0': File exists - sounds like you ran the script a second time, this is no issue and can be ignored.

As for the "Unable to find kernel sources at /usr/src/linux" warnings, those can be ignored - should probably look into making these quiet

Did you jumped via a quemu/aarch64/chroot'ed rootfs into your gentoo install
or
trying to use the installer script via quemu/aarch64 and hope this will work ?

The latter one is not possible ...

I never tried it with qemu, I bootstrapped this on a raspberry pi 3 in all its pain and agony.

Either way, the first approach should? work. I think people had success with an qemu/kvm aarch64 VM

Is doing this on your pinebook pro not an option?
