Hi guys,

If your are interested I did an how-to to install and configure a Gentoo Linux on a Mac Mini mid2012 as an HTPC. This how-to can be adapted for any other computer by changing the CFLAGS in make.conf and also adapt the kernel configuration.

The goal is to have a minimal Gentoo installation automatically running on Kodi at the end of the boot sequence and mainly controlled by an Apple Remote and Xbox One controller (for Steam).
  • UEFI stub kernel
  • OpenRC
  • Kodi booting automatically with auto-login (OpenRC init script)
  • Apple Remote fully functional in Kodi - ATVClient
  • Steam launched by Kodi and controlled with a Xbox One controller
  • Back to Kodi automatically when exit from Steam
  • Zattoo PVR support in Kodi Live TV with EPG

You can find this How-to in my website please follow this URL:
