The current PPC livecd from October 2003 named bugfix-10.2.8-openpic.iso lacks LVM tools. Since it is currently the only livecd I'm aware of that boots a PPC with 10.2.8 or later, one cannot create or mount logical volumes during an install from scratch. Further adding to the difficulties of getting up and running, was the sparse Gentoo documentation regarding LVM and PPC.

I worked around this by adding LVM support to the kernel and adding some LVM tools during the install. After booting into the new system I then created the volume group and logical volumes and transplanted the filesystem, with the exception of swap, root, and others. Due to a chain of events (self-inflicted), I'll be doing all of that again this weekend.

I look forward to seeing an updated PPC livecd with the LVM tools included (guess I should figure out how to make my own). I'd also like to see some improved documentation concerning LVM and Gentoo (I'll post my 2.6 kernel config and any extra helpful tips after I've finished).

Thank you,
