I have installed PPC64 and so far I have encountered the following problems: 1. I cannot load any keymap (loadkeys as well as /usr/share/keymaps are missing)
2. /usr/share/consolefonts is missing
3. When trying to boot my own kernel it stops very, very early somewhere at OF: Dart at: c00000007f0000000 // Calling quiesce ... // returning from prom_init // After that nothing happens anymore. I only get to see the white OF screen. I should say that I can boot with the kernel and the libs from the CD image.
Apart from that it seems to work fine so far (well, after having used it for about two hours ...)

1. I understand that I have to emerge sys-apps/kbd
2. .config files for PPC64 seem to be under arch/ppc64/configs/

ready to run ;)

You're not alone. I had the same problem in

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=178769&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=quiesce+prominit

using a config almost identical to the one from the cd. I havnt had a chance to play around with it anymore :-(.

Used config from CD to compile kernel. Kernel compiles. Kernel boots. Before init starts it suddenly reboots my machine. I can only see a flashing "no initial console found". Hm ... strange - I wonder what voodoo Tom Gall did to his kernel ...
