I am building my own gentoo base boxes for a while. I hope I can contribute some day back! but my build script is such a big hack :worried:
I want to try to make a script like yours for building. hope I find time
Fabio Rehm
@fgrehm
no worries
are you using the pre packaged containers available to use with the lxc-download template?
if you are we might be able to collaborate on bringing in the scripts to the vagrant-lxc-base-boxes repo ;)
Jens Kleikamp
@jensk
yeah. thats what I would love to achieve. transform my hacky build script into one that fits in your base-boxes repo. But that will be taff job for me. But it would be awesome.
Fabio Rehm
@fgrehm
no worries, just take your time :) you might also want to share them on vagrantcloud so that others can find it too

the problem with gentoo base boxes is that before the vagrant box can be made a new gentoo instance needs to be bootstrapped. thats a lot harder than just use base version of $binary-distro. so the build task consists of 2 huge tasks. gentoo bootstrapping and vagrant pre-configration.
for personal use my script just use the same gentoo chroot every time. thats not so cool :)
Fabio Rehm
@fgrehm
oh got it
Jens Kleikamp
@jensk
but its possible. there is a nice maintained script that creates a fresh gentoo lxc container. the build script can make use of it.
Fabio Rehm
@fgrehm
it seems that there is a base container available for use with the lxc-download template
I just double checked
Jens Kleikamp
@jensk
I guess it is too big to be included in standard lxc templates
Fabio Rehm
@fgrehm
haven't tried using it though
Jens Kleikamp
@jensk
maybe they contributed upstream finally :)
this is the one I used to create my chroot which is used to create the vagrant base box.
Fabio Rehm
@fgrehm
cool, I'll open up an issue to have a look into that
Jens Kleikamp
@jensk
great!
oh nice, now I see what you mentioned above https://github.com/lxc/lxc/blob/master/templates/lxc-gentoo.in
"Widely inspired from lxc-gentoo script" with some goodies. I will try that next time.
