Beagle Bone & Gentoo

by SirWhy on Sun Jun 03, 2012 3:55 pm

Hi,

I've been thinking about buying a Beagle Bone for a while now but am wondering if anyone has anyone has put Gentoo on it.
Its the distro I'm most comfortable with and I know it can be put on, but how does it run? I'd rather not use the default if possible.

Thanks
SirWhy

It can be done -- very easily. It takes about 30 minutes of your active time and about 3 hours of inactive time (while the operating system is transferred to the SDHC card). If you're comfortable with Gentoo, it's a snap.

I'm successfully running Gentoo using a Kingston 4MB and a Kingston 16MB card. I'll be trying a 32 MB card tomorrow. Please see my post at the BeagleBoard forum re: Gentoo https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgr ... qWxtUtLH9E
