Hello everybody,

has anyone ever installed Gentoo on this type of computer?

Doesn't the compilation make the device too hot?

Thanks

These come with different hardware configurations, mine has 1.6 GHz Celeron N3050 CPU and this has TDP 6 W. Now, 6 watts of heat really does not ask for much cooling. Amazingly enough it can do H.265 high definition decoding without breaking a sweat. I use it to run Kodi, it is attached to the back of my TV. It can compile, but it takes long time. So I run emerge in NFS chroot from my i7 desktop.

@Jaglover: just a question, by curiosity , why you installed gentoo instead of libreelec for run only kodi?

I have a headless media server. It stores all my media files, runs Tvheadend, has a bunch of tuners and mariadb for all Kodi frontends. It is paramount all Kodi clients run the same version of Kodi, otherwise they won't be able to share the database. Libreelec unfortunately does not fit in as its version of Kodi is older. Some frontends I have run on Gentoo desktop systems, it would not be reasonable to try and keep an old version of Kodi in them.

Ok thank you for the explanation. My configuration is a little bit simple than your, it's only a NUC with kodi :P .

I run a nuc7i5bnk as a kodi machine and tvheadend server. it's rock solid, even during a world update; imho it's a perfect machine for what it does.

Yours is more powerful, TDP is 15 W. Still not enough to fry eggs (to answer the OP's question). ;)

definitely not hot enough to fry anything, but the fan is rather annoying at full speed. But it's super small and still powerful enough to rebuild world easily within a day, and except for thunderbolt, all hardware works flawlessly with linux.

I have an Intel NUC. I use it as my NAS server, serving iSCSI, SMB, NFS, Appletalk (for Time Machine backups), and Plex Media Server. It also serves as my munin node, and my network monitoring box. It never overheats, is silent, and the fans only come on when I'm compiling
