Re: QEMU patches for RPi emulation - Initial release

Would this QEMU fork/build/whathaveyou be able to "bypass" the 512MB RAM limit of the Pi?

OFC one would need a compatible kernel, but being able to use it as a full compile "sandbox" would be awesome for projects like Gentoo

Re: Raspberry Pi official port?

I must admit I have not used your stage 4 yet, but interested in what optimizations you have done? Is it anything beyond what is covered in the quick install guide? All packages are compiled specifically against the Raspberry Pi's flags, also some packages are swapped out for more "minimal" counter...

Re: Raspberry Pi official port?

A stock Stage 3 isn't really optimized for the Pi, as an embedded device its preferable to squeeze as much performance as possible out of the device as possible A stage 4 release would (arguably) be just a "pre-built" Pi-centric install, that is to say, a stage 3 + syslog-ng, vixie-cron, DHCP for th...

Raspberry Pi official port?

Hi everybody As some of you know, each time the Raspberry Pi foundation updates their kernel, I push out a new Gentoo stage 4 for use (or if you don't know, you can check it out here: http://intelminer.com/blog/?p=80 ) 'Course, that's kind of a kludge solution, my builds aren't perfect and open sour...

Re: Trouble compiling vim

The developer profile is actually meant to be for Gentoo developers not general use

You might want to use the "desktop" profile (or "server" if you want a minimal system)

Re: cflags for raspberry pi

The flags I posted were a result of running gcc -march=native -E -v - </dev/null 2>&1 | grep cc1 as per the Safe CFlags page http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Safe_Cflags

That said, as the Pi matures, I predict there'll be patches to GCC etc to speed things up

Hi Phillip, glad to see other people using my build :D First things first, now that you've synced portage, you need to run eselect profile list to select the correct system profile Also, since ARM is one of the "less used" ports of Gentoo (compared to x86 or x64) a lot of packages are randomly keywo...

Re: net.eth0 modules missing

Try cd /etc/udev/rules.d/

See if "70-persistent-net.rules" exists, and if so, remove it and reboot

That should solve your issue

Hi Folderman If you run crossdev -S -t -v cross-armv6j-hardfloat-linux-gnueabi (on your PC) it should (eventually) generate a full ARM cross compiler for my Raspberry Pi image If it fails, #gentoo on irc.freenode.net should be able to help you get a working cross compiler toolchain If all else fails...

If you emerge gentoo-sources, that should keep the system from complaining My kernel was just the Raspberry Pi foundations 3.1.9 kernel, which you should be able to clone from GIT and compile (though it will take a LONG TIME ) Alternatively, you can try one of these kernels here http://www.bootc.net...

Re: Compiling LXDM

Try masking the package, you've got PACKAGE_KEYWORDS="arm" set in your make.conf, so portage is pulling in all "Testing" packages

Alternatively (and better yet) blow the entire thing away and start fresh without using testing, you'll thank yourself later (testing has package updates nearly daily)

Premade Gentoo Stage 4

Hey everyone

I made a minimal Gentoo stage 4 system for the Raspberry Pi, with all packages for it recompiled specifically against the Pi's CFLAGS etc

It should be a simple 'untar and boot' operation
