I'm using Baselayout2 + OpenRc + Uclibc (latest) here with no special support required. I am currently using udev, but if you examine the Alpine distribution you can find a great example on a fully featured mdev installation I build my basic image using something like: export ROOT=/some/tmp/dir export EMERGE_FLAGS="-vk --newuse --quiet-build" emerge ${EMERGE_FLAGS} baselayout || die "emerge failed" emerge -t ${EMERGE_FLAGS} uclibc busybox e2fsprogs udev || die "emerge failed" A few tweaks on that and you have a bootable image... Note you want a fairly recent busybox because I made a few feature requests to support some of the less common command line options, which of course openrc loves to use... Good luck Ed W
