I would very much like to install Gentoo PPC64 on XFS. However, xfsprogs is not included in the latest minimal installation image, and I canno load the XFS module ... Is there any other way I can try it? I remember a similar situation with PPC32, and when I tried XFS there it worked without any problems. Any suggestions?

Isn't xfsprogs on the Universal live CD?

I had a few problems with the minimal CD; wouldn't be surprized if other packages are missing also (like your xfstools). For example, run ybin and it'll complian that it can't modify the firmware, because those tools are missing too.

On my ppc32 TiBook, Gentoo runs stable for more than 1.5 years now using XFS.
