Hello, I have a problem when I try to install the system. Is the first time that I install gentoo on ppc64. I have a dual G5 and I have paid attention that the system reboots doing emerge system. The problem is in a package named readline, because I have injected this on /etc/portage/profile/package.provided and the problem has solved, but I know that the system requires this one packet. How can I install this? Is it really necessary?

thank and sorry for my poor english.

it always reboots your system when emerging readline? i just can't imagine this. what's with temperature and/or power supply? everythink ok with this? it is a cold reboot, like power off/power on? or does the system shut down properly? anything logged in /var/log/{messages,kernel,*}?

I don´t know if the temperature is ok or not, but i think that it's ok because the reboot only happens when merging readline packet. The system reboot's properly, killing procceses, unmounting the devices ..., all ok. In /var/log the the only log that leaves is the emerge log, and it dont help because there aren't information about the system errors. Apparently everything is OK, for that reason it is strange to me.
Thanks.

You is on chroot and boot from a install CD?
Try installing a system from stage3 compile a kernel and boot from the new system on the hard disk.
Bootstrap the system (cd /usr/portage & /scripts/bootstrap.sh) and emerge -e system. No problem with readline.
