[edit] Major overhaul

If anyone is mad with changes I made, please don't roll it back, tell me what to change. I'm not very experienced with this. Thank you.

[edit] Discussion Cleared

Most of the discussion here referenced the page before it was overhauled, so I cleared it. Restore some/all of it if you think it's important.

Personal tools

Can you please elaborate the points 18. (Copy kernel) and 19. (Copy modules)? I'm very interested in running Gentoo on my freerunner and willed to develeop ebuilds e.g. for the fso stack.

Space requirements

A small note about the space requirements for a gentoo-install would be nice.

Setting up uboot

I used: setenv menu_2 Gentoo: setenv bootargs \${bootargs_base} rootfstype=ext2 root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rootdelay=5 \${mtdparts} ro\; mmcinit\; ext2load mmc 1:1 0x32000000 \${sd_image_name}\; bootm 0x32000000 setenv sd_image_name /boot/uImage

Gentoo overlay

At http://torindel.sezamkowa.net/openmoko/ there are packages, but where is the svn-repo or the ebuilds?

svn: No repository found in 'svn://torindel.sezamkowa.net/openmoko'

Mirroring and Consideration

We can considerate work on porting gentoo to freerunner

Alternate Installation

Portage, GCC, libs, includes... and entire build environment ON the Neo? Sounds a bit excessive. Not to mention that compiling goes a lot faster on a desktop/laptop machine than on an embedded ARM device with limited... everything.

I don't know about others, but I'd really rather use that space to store my data, and that time to do more cool things with my Neo. And, besides, I'd love for the entire OS with apps to fit in NAND flash.

To that end, why not use crossdev? It's a beautiful thing. This would allow you to keep your build system on your PC and your cool stuff on your Neo.

I haven't got the hang of how to create the uImages and rootfs's yet, and thus haven't been able to boot it under Qemu or flash it to my Freerunner. I wonder if somebody would be willing to write up a short bit on how to create these images.

Thanks in advance.  :)
