Hi,

Is it just me, or is there no 2004.2 ppc release of Gentoo? I can't find it on any mirror, the store is going to be selling the CDs "later", and the ppc project page says nothing about the matter.

What's going on, folks?

Thanks,
-- Dan

http://www.metadistribution.org/gentoo/2004.2/

the images were not ready by due date so they did not get included in the release.

from what i read, they had planned to get a 2004.2 release out but missed the deadline by a day. they do plan on releasing for 2004.3, but i do not know whether that will include ppc64 or not. feel free to help in testing ppc64:

Looking forward to that site coming back up -- OS 10.3.5 on this Pismo 400 is killing me! I need that linux speed.

(btw: you might post that link somewhere visible on the main gentoo.org site ... it's conceivable that somebody else couldn't find it either.)

I just tried to download the 2004.2 ISO on metadistribution.org site with this result:

Quote:
Forbidden
