Hello,

I would like to know if it's possible to install Gentoo GNU/Linux on the specific board. I'm not into robotics, I bought this device in order to make it a home server. I'm familiar with Gentoo that's why I'd like to use it.

From what I've understand reading documentation here and there (DMP's website, forum, etc) I need to patch the custom kernel to support the Vortex cpu and the ethernet card.

Is it possible to find these patches in .patch format? Because all I've found so far are .deb preconfigured binaries and kernels. No sign of the actual files or code snippets.
