Okay, acting on another gentoo'ers advice yesterday, I tried compiling the 2.6.7 kernel with the options from the LiveCD /proc/config.gz. I still get the same error: the screen rapidly flashes several times then it hangs on "Loading second stage bootstrap..."

This is a G4 Quicksilver 2002 Mac. My yaboot.conf is:

Code:

boot=/dev/hda9
root=/dev/hda10
device=ultra2:
partition=10
delay=10
timeout=40
install=/usr/lib/yaboot/yaboot
magicboot=/usr/lib/yaboot/ofboot
image=/boot/kernel-2.6.7
   label=Linux
   read-only


I should add that everything was working great until I upgraded to the 2.6 series kernel.

Ideas, please?? :)

24 hours later, and I'm still stuck... :( I added append="video=ofonly" but that hasn't done anything. Still got the same error.

Help?

Could it have anything to do with the CD I'm booting from? When I use ybin -v I get a warning that my kernel is too old and the path may be incorrect. This is the 2004.1 CD.

Any comments? Anyone?

I'm completely stuck here. I need to get my Gentoo system working again!
