Thanks for the install guide doc.
Seems quite easy to install. I will see if I can do it by next
Serious... it needs 2 GB !! wow.... my current ext2 fs is only 2 GB.
I do not like to have it too large as any fsck needed will take some
I plan to have a spin on another spare hdd. Will see how it goes.
I've installed gentoo MiNT on an aranym setup. Install plain mint +
commandline shell, untar / ungzip
the package to the root partition, reboot and your done - at least that
works when you have an clean system
where no present software get's overwritten.
Not all software was running clean. Maybe an problem with aranym, but I
doubt that. For example python crashed.
Using sparemint + gentoo isn't an good idea. One disitribution
shouldn't be mixed with another one, I believe
it's ok to mix some packages, but it really should be done for single
packages, only. And you must
know if it replaces shared files...
