Gentoo project on Openmoko phones has its own homepage: http://gentoo.mindzoo.de/
We have a portage overlay and some Openmoko packages like Xglamo, Illume or Zhone already have their ebuilds and many more will follow !
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 and to Tuxxx who contributed strongly to the cross compilation efforts on gentoo for openmoko phones.
