Using:

stage3-ppc64-20040228.tar.bz2

in a chrooted directory, I installed

ppc64-sources-2.6.6.ebuild

(after hacking the ebuild to refer to ppc64-ames266.patch.gz not ppc64-ames266-1.patch.gz, as that -1 patch didnt seem to be on any of the mirrors).

I cp'd the /proc/config.gz from the ppc64 minimal to the .config and then ran make menuconfig, loaded and saved the config with only minimal config changes. (Note, I only changed the riva to a module, removed the raedon and turned off the logo stuff, the config did the rest).

So not many changes... although I am conserned about the
CONFIG_SCSI_SATA_SX4 one now I come to actually look closer, although it obviously isnt set on the cd kernel config.

I built it (which seemed to work fine). I installed it in /boot and then I rebooted.

It seems to hang with the following console output.

Setting up bi display...

Addr of fb: 000000098004000

returning from prom_init

(the number of '0's in the above may be wrong, but you get the idea).

Someone suggested removing the bootlogo stuff (which I did and tried again, same effect).

Anyway, suggestions welcome :).

Try compiling riva in as builtin? Or not at all?
