I am still running an XO-1 with Gentoo (the gentooxo website sadly died,
but I still use what it provided), but I did not get the newer kernels
to run, so I’m currently missing out on many features (including sound).

I’d be willing to try again if I could prod someones brain when I hit
roadblocks. I’m not experienced in low-level kernel development, but
depending on the problems, perspiration might be able to supplant some
missing experience :-)
