Just been trying to get GentooPPC going on a PowerTower Pro clone, 604e with SCSI disks. It detects every SCSI device on both chains, but only adds sr0 for the CDROM.

I tried downloading an older kernel from debian, and the disks now get detected but devfs isn't supported, so I don't think I can go any further.

Anyone have a kernel for PPC that works on oldworlds with SCSI, or am I on the wrong track? I seem to have BootX sorted, there's no probs loading and booting the kernel - I can use everthing except use the local disks.

TIA
Ben

have you tried loading with other kernel options? press f2 at the boot prompt to see.

you may need to disable acpi, or choose smp kernel, or try "doscsi" option.

Check out the last post to do see what I did to get SCSI working: No /dev/sda when booting with LiveCD
