vserver mit rsync on gentoo

  • RSYNC_RSH=ssh vserver sablink-armv5tel build --context 1253 --hostname sablink-armv5tel --interface eth0: --initstyle gentoo -m rsync -- -d gentoo --source [email protected]:/vservers/sablink-armv5tel

Qemu User for chroots

  • add the go-virtualization overlay to your system ( add to the list of overlay in /etc/layman/layman.cfg)
  • layman -f && layman -a go-virtualization
  • echo "app-emulation/qemu-user static" > /etc/portage/packages.use
  • now merge 'emerge -v app-emulation/qemu-user'
  • now add and start the 'rc-update add qemu-user' to your system and start it 'etc/init.d/qemu-user' (this will add the proper binfmt_misc entries to your system
  • then copy the qemu-user-* static bins to the chroot for the differnt arch 'cp /usr/bin/qemu-user-* /vservers/sablink-armv5tel/usr/bin/' (don't do ROOT=/vservers/sablink-armv5tel emerge -v qemu-user, entropy can't and should not handle this)



first update the LS-GL to the latest stock firmware For the use of Gentoo Genkernel the u-boot boot vars need to be extendet with real_root=/dev/sda2 and the Initrd size propertie can be removed ,15M can be droped this change won't break stock kernel images as the newest u-boot stock firmware dont require it.



  • select base use flags for the sabayon system (using sabayons selection makes no sense: x11, akonadi, ....)
  • ....


  • change the micro-evtd ebuild to also build for terrastation ( micro-evtd.tera micro-evtd wrapper script)
  • ....

dracut (drop genkernel)


  • collect information for net install (my idea is to have a initrd that contains anaconda and detects the system and installs the propper kernel)
  • the anaconde bootloader schould be extendet to also support u-boot (setenv ....)
  • change the hd setup tool to have some hardcoded partition requrements (ls-pro/live ext3 with -I 128 inodesize)
  • ....


  • search cortex A-9 board with sata connect (better for native compile)
  • Hosting the build server at
  • ....
Personal tools
