I want to try and get gentoo loaded on my 1.6Ghz G5.
What stage do I have to use? I see there is a G5 Kernel but no G5 stageX
Fan Support? What module do i have to load to get the fans supported?
SATA install is no problem?
Thanks!

For fan, see "announcement: thermal managemen & 2004.0" post.

I'd go with a stage1 or stage3 ppc and set CFLAGS to:

-O3 -mcpu=powerpc -mabi=altivec -maltivec

We have a gcc snapshot that supports -mcpu=970, but it seems to have I/O issues. Not sure whether it will be stable for the upcomming 2004.1
