This VM is minimal base install. It has the shell and the basic networking installed. Everything else can be custom installed and configured using emerge.

Until then, hope ya have fun with this version.


  1. I have been looking for one of these for a couple days now. Was dreading the install..haha.

    If you still need hosts let me know. I can host one or two of them maybe.

  2. My VMware Player 5.0.1 gets stuck at the very beginning. There’s just a black screen.

    And there’s no info here which VM machine you’ve used to create this.
