Yesterday I picked up the Banana Pi BPI-F3 I ordered 2 weeks ago. It is joining the small army of RISC-V devices I already own:

  • Espressif ESP32-C3 (20x)
  • Espressif ESP32-C6 (20x)
  • SiFive HiFive Unmatched
  • StarFive VisionFive 2

After giving the Armbian Noble image a quick try and being unimpressed, I decided to try installing Gentoo on it. I'll be documenting the process here. The first step: compile U-Boot.
