Hi everyone :D

Everything is in the title, I've followed every step of the https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi/Quick_Install_Guide (5 times) but I can't get my Pi to boot. It's a model B and I'm following instruction for a 32bits installation, everything is working fine on Raspbian/RapsberryPi OS so I don't think the Pi is to blame.

As I'm getting nothing I can't troubleshoot much, what are you thoughts on this ? Anything I could have done wrong ?

Thanks for reading !

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Gentoo on ARM.

Oops, sorry :(

I've found why I wasn't able to boot, it was because I had put all my partitions in one big extended partition, I've switched everything to primary partitions and now it's working.

Speedflam,

Only /boot needs to be Partition 1, that forces it to be primary.
That the only partition that the Pi reads itself. Everything else is accessed by the kernel.
