I know I posted a similar question yesterday but I am kinda stuck. Does anyone know if the cd found at http://store.gentoo.org/index.php?item=23&action=viewitem will run on my brand new ibook G4? If not will any version of gentoo run? and will it run faster or slower than my currently installed copy of OSX with which I have quickly gotten tired of. I miss kde and my command line tools not to mention root access.

I have been reading about the gentoo installation process on my ibook and it is a little daunting but I am willing to try if I must. I would however prefer to start small.

Thanks

It should. I don't see why not. About the whole not having root access in OS X. Apple didn't enable that for some reason. All you have to do is open up NetInfo Manager and then in the security tab just go to enable root access.

see the openpic issue at the to of this forum. if you have the laters osX you'll need at least kernel 2.4.22. I don't think that this CD will work!

Why don't you donwload it?
