I am having trouble with porthole/emerge etc, mainly I think because I changed the locale to AU.
Seems to only work with default locale GB?
Sometimes I click the wrong thing and face lots of time emerging, syncing etc, part of the learning Gentoo way.
Is there a way to set porthole/emerge to list only aarch64 ebuilds?
At the moment I have to manually check if one has been done.
ebuild is still on my list to learn, there are some libs still not available for Aarch64 as I found compiling BforArtists.
There is quite a lot of stuff that has not been made for Aarch64, till now Aarch64 was mainly Android.
Desktop Aarch64 is really only a few years old and until your Gentoo64 was not easy for non experts to use on Pi's.
At home until a few years ago internet was limited, lots of manual updating.
Linux dependencies were my biggest problem, I had to learn shell, AWK, SED to do things as simply as possible with no libs.
At work I am behind a firewall so internet access can be a pain for non Windows/non official PC's.
That is why I like the manual kernel update feature, please keep that option available.
I can mess up and then fix it much faster than any OS except for my baremetal kernels.
It is also the reason I do baremetal too, it only need a kernel.img that is only 2-4MB
This is made from a Laz/FPC tool that most times has no dependencies issues.
Kivy seems to be popular with some people, currently it is a pain on Raspbian due to them using older VC4 V3D drivers.
I suspect it will work much better in Gentoo64, but I have never used it.
Still it seems to be mostly Python, so it should be easy to port to Gentoo64.
I guess if I don't know what KVM is I don't need the .bis version
