I have installed gentoo before, but i have recently (over the plast couple days) been trying to load it on another G4 mac.

It appears that have completely merged the kernels so a ppc-dev-sources no longer exists.

It is very difficult to install gentoo withe the 2.6.7 kernel, "gentoo-dev-sources"

kernel would compile but freeze at boot, has anyone else had that problem. someone should really keep the handbook often

as for getting it to work with 2.6.7, does anyone have any ideas, it locks right after the kernel is loaded and the screen switches resolutions from yaboot to the kernel deal. :?

I had the same problem. Try disabling input device support for the standard 101pc keyboards and serial ports.

I also had the same problem and couldn't find any help from the forums. I was using the 2.6.5 from the livecd. This one was working fine. To have a 2.6.7 working I decided to compare the settings for the kernel configuration and reproduce the exact same configuration (almost). I thing the problem came from the graphic device configuration.

I see there is no way I can attach my .config file here.

Cheers,
Bernard.
