Hi

Long time gentoo user, first time with PPC. I have tried various distros, and have so far been somewhat unsuccessful. Most of the distros i have tried will boot from cd and install, but when booting from the hard drive after install will either get hung up on "loading modules..." or initializing MESH. I decided to try gentoo on ppc, and had no success booting off of the 2005.0 CD (hangs on "set MDMA timing" for hdc). 2004.0 and 2004.3 boot cd's either hang on mesh initialization or endlessly repeat the mesh reset...done error. Has anyone had similar problems? I got this notebook for free and would really like to get it workikng with something, because OSX absolutely crawls on it. (333MhZ and 256mb ram). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I figured it was probably a problem with the configuration of the 2.6 kernel on the install cd. went back to a cd with 2.4 (gentoo 1.4) and the mesh complained, but eventually timed out. In the middle of the install process right now. Hope this helps someone who has a similar problem.
