I just installed Gentoo 2.6.9 on my G4. I get the following on boot

Aty128fb: Invalid ROM signature 1111 should be 0xaa55
Aty128fb: BIOS not found, guessing timings
Macintosh non-volatile memory driver v1.1

and then it sits there.....I don't know how to run dmesg without being logged in...any help would be appreciated.

let me give some background.....I am trying to install gentoo on my g4 and i had been having the problem that is outlined in this thread https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=261710

I'm new to linux and the forums so rather than searching on here for possible solutions I just tried re-installing from the livecd 2004.3 stage 3....after a few times re-installing all of a sudden it won't past the line in my first post "Macintosh non-volatile memory driver v1.1" It has done it twice now.....any suggestions at all?

well appreciate all the views....though none of you could help....I went back to the 2004.1 cd and it worked with ext3 (couldn't get that cd to work with reiserfs) so I spose its up and running though i'm not too thrilled about it

Welcome to the forums. Glad you got it installed =). How many times did you install it? I think that there is something wrong with the stage but I may be wrong, I wonder if a 2004.2 or 2004.3 rerelease would work on it though 2004.3 didn't say anything about ppc changes just other things.
