can i turn my gentoo into archlinux?

i tired of compiling endless time.
i want to go back to arch.
but i would like not to format gentoo and then install archlinux.
i want, if possible, to turn my gentoo into archlinux.
is it possible?
is there a guide anywhere that walk me through?

Re: can i turn my gentoo into archlinux?

not unless you're referring to the old chroot and switch

mount /dev/gentoo-root /mnt
mkdir /mnt/arch

... chroot install arch in /mnt/arch chroot (arch subdir of gentoo rootfs)...

# clean up
umount /mnt/arch/* /mnt/*

# switch
mkdir /mnt/gentoo
mv /mnt/* /mnt/gentoo
mv /mnt/gentoo/arch/* /mnt

then the rootfs is archlinux, with old gentoo install in gentoo/ subdir

you'll need plenty of free space on that for it to work though. it's usually easier to create a new partition / LV dedicated to arch.
