This may be a stupid question.... but whare are the general steps in proting gentoo? I'm guessing you need to build a basic livecd for the target architecture either by cross compiling the required components or maybe but stealing them off another distribution for the same platform... How does it work?

Moving from P&P to Gentoo on Alternate Archs, where the real "dire devils" live :)

OK, well I'm getting there, the platform I am porting to has a Debian Woody distribution available for it, I'm running that and I'm manually building a stage1 tarball buy replacing the standard binaries with the latest Debian ones for the platform and building the Gentoo specific binaries manually.

I do need a ltlle help locating the descriptions and source for libpcprofile.so and libmemusage (which should be in libc6 on debain but isn't)

I want to get to a stage where I can chroot and then see what happens

I'll update you later
