      - 7.0.0_pre9999 is available in the gentoo-gpu overlay. -fopenacc offloading to Nvidia GPUs seems to be working ok.

        I think some old packages dont build with gcc6.3.0 so they are blockers however i think for unstable it should be fine.

          tbh, I'd wait for 7.2 at least, to get the most annoying bugs fixed first. I did a complete rebuild with 7.1; the system works surprisingly well, only a handful of packages
          needed to be patched, in libmp4v2-2.0.0 it also uncovered a real bug.

            Sounds good enough for unstable then.

              Freshly landed in OpenIndiana with illumos patches
