Hello, I tried to get gentoo installed on an x86 java emulator https://sourceforge.net/projects/jpc/?source=directory.
I started by trying to get linux to boot.
latest minimal install cd failed
system rescue cd failed
system rescue cd 1.0 failed
damn small linux booted into text mode but it could not load the network card module. (and the program does not support the internet).
I was wondering has anyone tried something like this?

moaxcp,

Ewww ... a virtual machine running a virtual machine.
I hope its really not an emulator, emulating the CPU will make it horribly slow.

Whats wrong with Virtualbox or a Kernel Virtual Machine.
Virtual Box just works, you can even run Virtualbox in side the guest too. I didn't intend to do it, it was just there so it seemed silly not to try.

I just wanted to try it out. The site has screenshots of dsl working and I wanted to see if gentoo would work as well. I think to get gentoo working I would have to build an img file first and then see if the emulator could boot from it. I'm not really interested in doing that though.
