The Raspberry Pi is an ARM device (BCM2835, ARMv6).

This document contains notes about getting Funtoo Linux up-and-running on the Raspberry Pi. Most information is already available on other documents, so this document mostly explains how to get the information needed to perform the installation.

Please read Funtoo Linux Installation on ARM for general information about installing Funtoo Linux on ARM architecture.


Gentoo Linux's wiki already provide a complete installation manual for Gentoo Linux. To avoid duplicating information, only parts that are different for Funtoo Linux will be highlighted here.
