I am a complete beginner with linux and have been trying to install gentoo on my 1.6 single processor G5. I have got as far as booting it with a compiled kernel but the mac reboots every time after the apple keyboard and mouse have been detected. I've tried several configs but can't get further than this. Does anyone have any ideas what's going wrong? Any help with a kosher kernel .config would be greatly appreciated

Nope, not for me anyway. AGP is also broken with this kernel version.

Thanks ++ bruda for your config, have got a working setup but so far no success with sound or setting up modem. There doesn't seem to be much support for nvidia graphics either!
