Anyone ever installed Gentoo on a pSeries 610 (or later) ?

In a couple of weeks I'll have to do that. I wanna go with Gentoo.

If anybody ever installed Gentoo on a pSeries, is there anything special to be warned of? Any particular steps needed?

Just wondering, thanks for your answers in advance :-)

Best regards,

Steve

My only concern, and I'm talking out my ass here, is that the default kernel will likely not support pSeries hardware. Then again, I know nothing about pSeries hardware, so take anything I say with a grain of salt.

If you have some other Linux distro running on it now it should be a simple enough transition, follow the intructions as you would normally install (you can make your own chroot and go from there from a working system).

Otherwise, if you are looking to boot it, I'm not sure the live cd's are capable of booting that hardware... I may stand corrected but I don't think it's hardware that's ever been on Gentoo PPC's roadmap ;)
