For what it’s worth, I’ve been trying to get some stages together the last few days. Thanks to solar and Brent, the ppc-stages are now coming along quite fast.
I haven’t really tested them yet, but for what it’s worth, you’ll find stages based on Saturday’s snapshot (that is 200
780105 for those not smart enough to take a look at the calendar) here for the following profiles:
- uclibc/ppc (normal/-softfloat)
- hardened/x86/2.6 (x86/i686)
Now remember, this isn’t *official* release material. This is just *MY* effort (for now) to provide current stages.
And just a side-note for those brewing their own (uClibc) soup: if you remerge system/world, you’ll have to keyword =sys-libs/uclibc.0.9.28.3-r2. Otherwise you’ll stumble on bug 195368, which is fixed thanks to solar, just not marked stable yet.

Looks like you’re the one who needs to look at the calendar. You might also want to think about using a spell checker. 😉
Nah, I’m just too tired to write. Should have been 2008 in the first place 😉 I’m rather lazy too, so I write like I think is right!
Thanks for those, I always appreciate work being done to get Gentoo going with uClibc. I’m guessing the x86 one was built as i686. Shame. I would have used it on my Toshiba Libretto (Pentium MMX). (-;
Nah, those are supposed to be GENERIC_I386 (at least that’s what uClibc showed when compiling).
Good work! I like those stages. I’ve just used the default ppc one (i.e. no hardened) to install gentoo on a EFIKA.
Keep the good work up. Do you have some kind of automation to create these stages on a regular basis?
Nah, just kicking off the build once I think enough shit changed, which justify a complete rebuild.
tried for days getting the latest uclibc-hardened installed with no success….
can you build an installable livecd/usb that any noob can use?
also, template for xen/openvz image would be great too… so we can test it online with some cheap xen/vz hosting
