1 I'm considering attempting to set up an Intel Mac Mini as a
2 MythTV frontend. Right now I'm thinking I'll leave the
3 internal drive alone and boot from net or from a USB flash
4 drive. That way I can spin down the internal HD and save on
5 power and noise (and the standard OS-X install is still there,
6 so it can be trivially switched back to normal desktop use).
8 I've been googling for info on running Linux on a Mac Mini, and
9 there was fairly active discussion 3-4 years ago, but very
10 little recent info. That leads me to either of two
11 conclusions:
13 1) It can't be done and everybody gave up.
15 2) It's so trivial that people no longer need to ask about it.
17 So, how hard would it be to do a USB or network-based Gentoo
18 install for a recent Intel Mac Mini?
