I wanted to try and put gentoo back on my laptop this weekend to look at the video drivers for my radeon card but ran into a serious problem. Everything seemed to work fine on install of the 2.4 kernel following the ppc instructions. Once i booted properly I changed the ACCEPT to "~ppc" to get the latest development stuff for the 2.6 kernel and ran an emerge world. The binary utilities like ls, rm etc were no longer there.

Question 1: did i miss a step? it's been awhile since I first installed on this laptop

Question 2: if not does anyone else have this problem and do you have to have the latest libraries, programs, & utilities in order to compile the development 2.6 kernel?

a simple 'emerge ppc-development-sources' would have done the trick. The beauty of emerge is that it takes care of dependancies, so you don't have to.

Reinstall and do an: emerge /usr/portage/sys-kernel/ppc-development-sources/ppc-development-sources-2.6.1-r1.ebuild (or whatever it is).

append a -pv to that command to see what it will install.

You were correct. I re-installed the last couple of days from stage1 and just exported the ACCEPT_KEYWORDS=~ppc for only development sources and it worked great. X finally works too! WHOOP!
