The instructions in this post still apply. You must supply the script with a working kernel config for your target hardware. When the process completes, you will have a minimal musltronic Gentoo base system using gcc-4.9.4.

This base system will set the stage for the remaining work on Cuntoo, which includes producing a genesis.vpatch for the ebuild tree, and moving the legacy Gentoo tree to an overlay. For now, it can be used to produce a musl base system as good as any hand-rolled musl Gentoo.

  2. Hi Trinque,

    Unfortunately the process failed for me, some remarks;

    1) The mentions portage release 20180630 but the distfiles has release 20180601.
    2) When running the as "sudo" the gpg import line will change the ownership of the public key ring.
    3) The lilo config assumes sda as the primary disk: it has "
    append="root=/dev/sda2 console=ttyS0,115200n8 net.ifnames=0""
    4) The umount line has an "-R" and umount on my system does not support this argument (I have an old ubuntu)
    5) The whole thing failed for me at the point musl should be downloaded from "". I get this;

    The authenticity of host ' (' can't be established.
    ED25519 key fingerprint is SHA256:0q8c/iVAqaL9klm7gymePHovFQjrX9DGWeY+x2/UAxM.
    Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
    Warning: Permanently added ',' (ED25519) to the list of known hosts.
    Connection closed by port 22
    fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

    Any hints?
