Hi!
I'm trying to get my Gentoo installed on my new PowerMac since over two months, as for my problems you might look here :)

But one thing that makes me crazy is that I'm never able to reboot as I might do with Ctrl-Alt-Canc on x86-PCs. Someone wrote about Option and Command with the Powerbutton I believe, I tried it and it did not work anyway.
After unmounting all partitions from the livecd I type
Code:
reboot

(alternatively also:
Code:
shutdown -r now
), it halts the system - and that's it!
So every time I have to use the power button. After one month the power supply was broken and the Mac sent away for fixing the problem - I fear it might have been for that kind of "rebooting".
It would become at least a bit easier and maybe healthier for the mac as well, if I was able to do a normal "reboot".
Does anybody knows how??? Or even how to solve my installation problem (see thread up)???
Thanks for any comment.

If you read through your rc.conf, it should mention something about the 'Three-Finger-Salute' which should tell you exactly which keys to perform the reboot. I looked at the other thread, any luck yet?

Its Control-Option-Powerbutton. This will always work and will do a hard reset independent of the OS. Obviously this cannot be what you really want though since this should be only used in an emergency and might lead to data corruption on all filesystems other than Reiser4.

I don't see what's wrong with reboot and halt - they work perfectly for me, even from the LiveCD.
