Gentoo project on Openmoko phones has its own homepage: http://gentoo.mindzoo.de/
We have our own portage overlay and some Openmoko packages like Xglamo, Illume or Zhone already have theyr ebuilds.
Ways to work with Gentoo
Currently, there are 2 ways how to install gentoo, both having advantages and disadvantages:
- Cross compile approach, where you use another machine to compile your whole phone system.
- Native compilation approach, where you work with Gentoo on phone as with a normal system fully capable of installing its own packages.
Many thanks go to 'torindel' who apparently started the effort and made a stage tarball we are using even today for the native approach.
How to get started
If you want to try out a normal Gentoo experience, as seen on desktop, feel free to follow these native installation instructions.
Please note, unless you use distcc, it takes a long time to get a fully working system this way (About 3 days for xorg with fluxbox).
