Alright, i am sick of Darwin, Fink, and finding and compiling src.

SOOO....

i really wanna help develop portage for OS X x86 . . . .

how many of you out there have an x86 OS X machine that would like to help?

I have no clue where to even start, i have used Gentoo for years, so i figure i can tool around enough to get something setup.

Anyone know any helpfull clues and hints?

Zac

naw, that thing isn't really for OS X x86, and it crashes hard, i have been working with it with no avail.

really i would like an integrated gentoo, not a prefix, but i will take what i can get. i have been wondering if i just do a standard x86 build package with freebsd profile if it will work.

anyone got anything to work with the x86 os x? most of my builds crash, can't emerge system, i have been piecing together stuff, but most of it crashes.

Why would you want to emerge system on a x86 OSX? It would have already been optimised since it is an OS build by Apple for their own computers, unlike Windows...

mostly because a lot of the programs/libraries are outdated, which keeps you from compiling a lot of source out there.

- Limit the scope of what needs to be done first ( getting portage working )
- Identify specific and repeatable problems
- Centralize information
- Talk with existing developers we can find on Tiger if they have tested this stuff out on intel x86
- Any information that is found should be put on http://gentoo-wiki.com/Gentoo_MacOS (Success and exact methods especially)
- Start creating new bugs on the gentoo bugs page as soon as they are found
- Everyone interested should get on the IRC page #gentoo-osx

This is dead, so don't invest in it, please.

Well, since that channel is pretty abandoned, I'd highly appreciate it if you could just subscribe and post on our gentoo-osx mailing list. See the lists page on www.gentoo.org for information on how to subscribe.
