Hello,

I use gentoo in my x86 without problems.

But now I want to install it in my Mac.

The problem is that I already installed it 3 times and made 2 emerge -e world with various optimizations settings and (this is the most aparent error) everytime I run etc-update and chose to interactivly merge a conf file I get a "sdiff: Stack overflow" error. -> This is for CFLAGS="-O1 -mcpu=7400 -maltivec -mbi=altivec"
If I use higer optimization I get an even stanger error again in etc-update (I dont remember the error correctly)

I've tried kernel 2.6.4 and 2.6.5 with the same results.

I have an PowerBook 15' with FW 800 and an Ati 9600


Anybody has some help?

sounds like a _long_ standing problem with sdiff on PPC .. I suggest searching bugs.gentoo.org and see if there were/are solutions.
