I normally avoid anything that sails close to cross-posting, but since there's been quite a bit of engagement - in various threads - on this General discussion forum recently regarding running the RPi4 in 64-bit mode (either kernel, or kernel+userland), and I'm not sure how many people here closely follow the goings on in the Operating system distributions -> Other -> Gentoo oubliette ^-^, I thought it'd be worth a quick, one-off announce post here for information's sake. Thanks!

This is a nice alternate to Raspbian, I've only dabbled with it, but very promising. 8-)

I tried this latest version on my new Pi4 4gb but encountered a problem with the wifi. It allowed me to connect to my wifi LAN but it won't connect to any internet site. I tried to ping other devices on my LAN but get no response. I changed the local in RPI config from UK to US but it didn't help.
edit: Wired works.
