I tried the script, but it looks like it works with the Gentoo system from a few years ago; I see a bunch of missing files, etc, most likely because things have changed a lot since the script was last updated.

So the question is, what do I need to copy to the target disk for a minimal setup? All I need is a console and a few basic commands. I got to the point where it boots up and stops with the following message.
Code:
Freeing unused kernel memory: 240k freed
Warning: unable to open an initial console.

This script it to old to use. I suggest you check out the embedded Gentoo project. I also wrote a how-to for embedded Gentoo for x86 computers, but this too is old; although it is much newer and still works. Check the links below :
