Is there going to be more support for Linux on the PPC platform? I'd love to see Flash and not to mention have Reiser4 running on my iBook.

About the Flash, well ask macromedia to open up the specs or to create a player for Linux/PPC

Reiser4 has been a problem ever since it was released, it's buggy and we certainly don't recommend it.

I think you should go for xfs for a descent journalled fs.

btw Gentoo runs allready on the macmini


greetings

Sounds good to me. If we started up a donation to get Hans Reiser a mac mini I think Reiser4 would be ported on PPC. :D


I'm down for donating btw.

erm, reiser doesn't even work descent on x86, (haven't heard about one arch where it runs flawless) so what should we do donate all kind of machines to him?

btw we don't even get them donated to us for gentoo why should gentoo (who doesn't have a penny) donate to others?


greetings

Good point.


It wouldn’t be all kinds of machines. It would just be one. Hell maybe we should start a donation for Gentoo and other developers. Something like donating old PPC systems to others. PPC is not really a major platform that most people work on. Hopefully one day it will get there.
