Ettore Di Giacinto has announced that the Sabayon project has released an ARM-based build of their distribution. The new ARM installation images are designed to run on Raspberry Pi computers, specifically version 2 and 3 of the Raspberry Pi single board computer. "We are glad to announce the immediate availability of Sabayon ARM (hfp) for Raspberry Pi 2 and 3. This is our first step towards ARM support, the package release scheduling will be different from our amd64 variant. Updates will be on a period of 6 months, except for security or special updates. The image comes out of the box with the latest 4.4.y kernel and with the rpi-update tool that can be used to update kernel and firmware. The username/password is sabayon:sabayon, and sudo is already set-up. Just flash the image with dd, and attach it to a network (it will gets an IP automatically from your network). The OS is set to automatically boot and start eth0 and sshd (so you can connect to it via ssh)." Download links and additional information can be found on Sabayon's website.
