hello,

is it possible to install gentoo on vu+ zero or vu+ devices generally? i tried to google out some info about gentoo and vu+ devices but found nothing. here is some info about the device: http://vuplus.com/sub/sub0102.php i suppose this might be doable but i never tried this so i'm newbie in this area. thanks for any hints.

A friend of mine owns a duo 2 box. There is a Linux Thing running on it. My try would be to dig into the running system, inspect the kernel and the fs architecture (NAND, f2fs, whatever) and see what differences are. If there is a Linux kernel running, i am pretty sure you can run gentoo on it. The only possible thing could be, some proprietary blobs in the kernel for some fancy hardware stuff...

i think too that it should be doable, just not sure if vu+ will load my compiled gentoo image. some step-by-step guide would be great but so far i found none. i will try to inspect the current system more (i'm running vti there) and will see if things make sense so that i'd decide to spend some time on trying to make it work as i unfortunately do not have much time to play with it too much.
