Gentoo support was apparently over a year ago and it’s probably not coming back. So was Arch linux. That’s why I left Digital Ocean for VULTR.

  • change hostname(s) and IP(s) that match the new droplet After changing to static IP address snapshots restore are not working. How to fix this problem?

Just do a stage 3 install to your liking:

  • delete the installed distro
  • move your stage 3 over
  • use kexec to boot your custom kernel
  • create a stage 4 image/template for new droplets
  • change hostname(s) and IP(s) that match the new droplet

That’s what I did to solve “my needing to run Gentoo problem”.
