Macbook Pro 2015


Hi all,
I'm interested in installing Gentoo on my Macbook Pro 2015, which is the macbook12,1 model.
I've already installed Debian, which has a very clunky UI and a terrible package manager and I want something better.
I managed to install Gentoo in a VM some time ago but now I want it on real hardware.
My Wifi requires a firmware blob on Debian and I don't have a USB Ethernet adapter.
Does anyone know how formidable a task it is to get Gentoo on this laptop?
Are there any definite roadblocks?
I also want to install it into LUKS-encrypted partitions.
Thanks.

Very.

Of course.
Everybody wants that these days.

I have to say, if you're fairly new to Linux and cannot even find your way to the Gentoo wiki, you should not even attempt it.
Though I wonder how you managed to install Gentoo on a VM when you don't know about Gentoo wiki?
