I feel somewhat stupid this, but I wasn't able to find 'vmlinux' on any of the CD images of Gentoo 2004.0

I should have it to put it into the kernels folder of my beige G3 to use it with bootx...

vmlinux is made when you compile the kernel.

You then copy it to 'boot' or wherever it is kept with ppcs.

In other words, it is not a file that is on the cd, follow the install instructions, and after chrooting into the disto, one of the steps is compiling the kernel. Once you have done that you can then copy it.

in fact after you compiled the kernel you'll find it here:
/usr/src/linux/vmlinux
and the System.map is
/usr/src/linux/System.map

Ok, got that.
But what kernel do I choose in BootX to load for the installlation, as long as the Gentoo kernel isn't yet compiled?

search the cd for vmlinux. It should be in /boot/ on the cd.

Currently, the only kernels in the /boot/ directory on the 2004.0 and 2004.1-rc3 CD images are for G4 and G5 macs. What do you suggest those of us using older G3 and PPC machines use?

Complain, perhaps in a submission to Gentoo's Bugzilla. Also, use one of the older live CDs for installation. That will get you to a point where you can use the newer stage tarballs.

correct me if im wrong, but i think i saw a post that suggested that on 2004.0 cds, certain architectures shared kernel.

may have been g4 and g5, but also may have been g3 and g4....

cant seem to fidn the post now though (somewhere in this list.)


can it hurt to try the g4 kernel image?

I tried the G4 kernel image on the 2004.1-rc3 ISO that pvdabeel put together ...

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=160323

It gives the option of selecting from G3, G3-SMP, G4, G4-SMP, G5, and G5-SMP, but nothing worked. Obviously it couldn't find any of the G3 options, because they weren't there, and the other options failed to boot. I don't have the exact error message handy. I've moved on to building from an older 1.4 Live-CD. The machine I attempted this all on is a PowerBook G3, Lombard.

I installed 2004 just recently on a PB FW/Pismo. I used the G4 kernel, and the only problem i had is that shutdown's sequence would not work properly...
it would freeze after trying to unmount filesystems...

that said, it worked with a reboot -f, and gentoo now boots ok into the 2.6 kernel opt for the G3....
