I guess this is the place to ask I dont know :/

I was wondering if anybody has gotten Gentoo on a PPC and run wine or winex and if programs work?

Thx :)

Hi!

I don't think this is possible as wine(x) programms are designed and compiled for x86 prozessors.

You have to emulate the prozessor to run x86 programms. there is a programm out there which can do this, but I've forgotten the name. Try searching the forum or google for it, if you want to know more.
