Hi folks,

I just installed Gentoo on my new G4 iBook, and I came to the point where I have to install the kernel. I did everything like in the Gentoo PPC handbook, but my kernel would never load. So, I searched the forum and found a kernel config file (gentoo-dev-sources). I compiled that kernel, and it works just fine. Though, whenever I somehow modify the kernel, e.g. when I try to add NFS support, yaboot just tells me "Read failed" when I select the new kernel. This is so odd. The new kernel is fine, I didn't change anything important except I compiled NFS into it and left a few things out (sound etc.). Permissions are okay, the new kernel is smaller than the old one. What's wrong? Any ideas?

Tom
