I just wanted to say I really appreciated the "how-to" on the Gentoo wiki for building Gentoo on the Odroid XU4. It worked almost flawlessly, and so far I am finding little/nothing wrong with this distro. I come from the FreeBSD camp ((I run one of the BSDs on every one of my boards (Odroid C1, Odroid C1+, Raspi2, etc) - excepting for the Odroid XU4). I didn't want to use the images from dn.odroid.com for various reasons, but especially because they're all Ubuntu or Android. Wanting something I could taylor for my likes, in the same way I do FreeBSD, I decided to try Gentoo on the XU4. Long time lurker, now user.

I'm using firefox 52 (only a little dated) - from portage - and have built most of my usual packages from portage without issue. I do get a segfault on bluetoothctl for some reason. The XU4 is quick with Gentoo - so I'm running some x86 operating systems inside of QEMU on it as well.

So far, so good ...

Using package.accept_keywords and package.mask you can compile almost everything from gentoo amd64, it's unsupported and a bit complicated sometimes, but it works.
