This guide draws heavily on Raspberry_Pi_2, Undead_USB_Install, and Install

What you need

  1. Raspberry PI 4
  2. An existing Linux install Undead_USB_Install built with fchroot is a solid choice if you do not have funtoo installed on a hard drive.
  3. A suitable SD card for your PI.

Prepare your SD card

List the device to be partitioned, mine is on /dev/sdc

root # lsblk -o name,size,label,partlabel
root # cgdisk /dev/sdc
  • delete everything:
Command: new ↵
First sector: 
Size:  +1M ↵
Hex Code: EF02 ↵
Name: BIOS Boot ↵
  • scroll down to the large chunk of free space:
Command: new ↵
First sector: 
Last sector: +256M ↵
Hex Code: EF00 ↵
Name: BOOT ↵
  • scroll down to the large chunk of free space:
Command: new ↵
First sector: 
Last sector: 
Hex Code:  8305 ↵
Name: FUNTOO ↵
Disk Drive: /dev/sdc
                            Size: 62333952, 29.7 GiB

Part. #     Size        Partition Type            Partition Name
----------------------------------------------------------------
            1007.0 KiB  free space
   1        1024.0 KiB  BIOS boot partition	  BIOS Boot
   2        256.0 MiB   EFI System                BOOT
   3        29.5 GiB    Linux ARM64 root (/)      FUNTOO
Command: write ↵
Do you want to proceed? (Y/N): yes ↵
Command: quit ↵

Create File Systems

Next, we need to create file systems on the partitions:

root # mkfs.vfat -F 32 /dev/sdc2
root # fatlabel /dev/sdc2 "BOOT"
root # mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdc3
root # e2label /dev/sdc3 "FUNTOO"

Prepare Your Boot Partition

Make mount points for your boot and root partitions on the SD card:

root # mkdir /mnt/funtoo

Mount your SD card:

root # mount /dev/sdc3 /mnt/funtoo 
root # mkdir /mnt/funtoo/boot
root # mount /dev/sdc2 /mnt/funtoo/boot

Get the Funtoo Files Onto the SD Card

Download the Necessary Files

Grab the latest Arm64_generic stage 3 file: Subarches

root # cd /mnt/funtoo
root # wget https://build.funtoo.org/1.4-release-std/arm-64bit/arm64_generic/2020-09-07/stage3-arm64_generic-1.4-release-std-2020-09-07.tar.xz

Extract the stage 3:

root # tar --numeric-owner --xattrs --xattrs-include='*' -xpf stage3*

Pre-boot Configuration

  • Edit your make.conf file to enable fchroot to compile:
root # nano /mnt/funtoo/etc/portage/make.conf
   /mnt/funtoo/etc/portage/make.conf
FEATURES="-pid-sandbox"
PORTAGE_TMPDIR="/run"
  • Edit your fstab file so everything mounts correctly on boot:
  • Raspberry pi only supports partuuid and partlabel loading:
root # nano /mnt/funtoo/etc/fstab
   /mnt/funtoo/etc/fstab
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
PARTLABEL=BOOT /boot vfat noauto,noatime 1 2
PARTLABEL=FUNTOO / ext4 noatime 0 1

Chrooting into your new installation

for a good time install Package:Fchroot

as root, start the binfmt service:

root # /etc/init.d/binfmt restart

Finally perform the usually chroot routine (as described in detail in the Funtoo Linux Installation Guide):

root # cd /mnt/funtoo
root # mount --rbind /run run
root # fchroot .

set your pass

  • Set yo password
root # passwd && ego sync
root # echo "media-libs/raspberrypi-userland-bin **" >> /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords
root # echo "sys-boot/raspberrypi-firmware **" >> /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords
root # echo "sys-kernel/raspberrypi-image **" >> /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords
root # emerge raspberrypi-userland-bin raspberrypi-firmware raspberrypi-image
root # nano /boot/config.txt
   /boot/config.txt
disable_overscan=1
dtparam=audio=on
dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d
max_framebuffers=2
arm_64bit=1
root # nano /boot/cmdline.txt
   /boot/cmdline.txt - Stifler's Mom
console=tty1 root=PARTLABEL=FUNTOO rootfstype=ext4 elevator=noop fsck.repair=yes quiet rootwait

Set your timezone:

root # ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Detroit /etc/localtime
  • Set Services:
root # rc-update add dhcpcd default
root # rc-update add busybox-ntpd boot
root # rc-update add swclock boot
root # rc-update del hwclock boot
root # rc-update del swap boot
   Note

you should probably test that your pi boots at this point BEFORE emerging everything.

Reboot and merge,or just merge

  • Set your profile:
root # epro list 
root # epro flavor desktop
root # epro mix-in lxde
root # echo "media-plugins/alsa-plugins pulseaudio" >> /etc/portage/package.use
root # echo "net-print/cups -zeroconf" >> /etc/portage/package.use
root # echo "gnome-base/gvfs -http" >> /etc/portage/package.use
root # emerge xorg-x11 elogind pulseaudio networkmanager lightdm lxde-meta dillo
root # emerge -avuND @world

Install/Stage3_Desktop

Clean unmount

Make sure all buffers have been flushed and unmount the temp directories:

root # exit
root # cd .. && sync 
root # umount -lR funtoo

Now you can follow the Funtoo Install documentation to continue configuring your system. You'll definitely want to look into sys-devel/distcc if you are going to be adding lots of software to your system.
