I wanted to do put a gentooinstallation on my G3 350MHz Imac.
So I downloaded the universal CD image,
since it's my first time installing gentoo I neatly followed the installation
instructions on the cdrom.
so far so good, had some problem with partitioning but nothing major.

I came to the point where I had to emerge the system.
the first package goes wrong, it searches for the python package in the distfiles directory, but it's not there.

any ideas? someone else had this problem?

oh i'm doing a cd only install.

Copy the distfiles from the CD into the distfiles directory on your hard disk.

I've been a good boy and did that.
so i thought hey maybe something went wrong, so i looked on the cd in the disfiles directory for the python package, but it just isn't there.
I used the install-ppc-universal-2004.1.iso by the way

Put the missing package in /usr/portage/distfiles on your harddrive.
