Default Gentoo Dell Mini 12 - 02-11-2009, 11:55 AM

First off i really enjoy the site. This site is pretty much what convinced me to purchase my mini 12 in the first place. I can't wait to see if anyone starts doing hardware mods with the mini 12.

After reading about performance with XP, Vista, Windows 7, and Ubuntu i thought to myself... what about Gentoo? I haven't used Gentoo in ~4 years and the only two things i remember about it are 1. What a pain in the ass to install, 2. How beautifully it ran when i was done.

I found one page so far that has information on installing Gentoo on the dell mini 9:
I have a mini 12 obviously but that guide should help me along.

Compiling Gentoo on the Mini 12 may be a problem with the SSD and Atom... I have never compiled Gentoo on anything but the machine it was going to stay on so that may be time consuming to research.

Anyone know of a Mini 12 specific Gentoo guide / tutorial?
