  • Raspberry Pi 4 Installation: 32 bit vs 64 bit?

    64 bit with gentoo i think is slightly less supported; but that is just from me looking around the package archive, and what it appears to be from the wiki. Though i am in the process of taking sakaki's 64 bit image and moving it over to use the official gentoo repos, so i guess i am glutton for punishment
  • How to enable /dev/dri/renderD128 on ALARM aarch64 on the Raspberry pi 4 (8 GB)?

    Last time I was looking into this, no normal 64-bit rpi distro (including alarm) supported it. There was only gentoo that somebody hacked together offering mmal interface for h/w codecs:

    You can build a binary distro based on Gentoo, e.g. (sadly EOL'ed several months ago).

    Anyway, from my own experience, the video decoding performance of gentoo-on-rpi-64bit was somehow nowhere close to LibreELEC, on the same hardware. Perhaps there is a lesson to be learnt there...

    This is very encouraging—I'm doing the same thing eventually on my Surface Pro (2017 model). Right now, I've just got it on a raspberry pi 4B 8GB. It works amazingly there, but I'm using a binary-heavy overlay and dwm. Firefox works better than I expected, but I haven't bothered with sound much, so I don't watch any video or anything. Also, the image I use (I use the “lite” variant available there) comes with an easy-to-use update tool (“genup”). At the very least, I consider it a great way to get acquainted with a significant portion of the Gentoo experience.
