Hi again still trying to install gentoo again on my imac g3 revision B. :D

after I configured yaboot and partitioned my /root to be only 8GB

It boots YAY! and hangs at

* loading module code.
* failed to load module code

(the controle D to continue does not work)

Code:
/etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
is empty. I am unaware of any modules I need to load at boot.



Backround: Since the live cd did not have gcc 4.1.1 on it I did the gcc upgrade guide, then it said in the guide to recompile kernel so I did an
Code:
emerge -e gentoo-sources
it was almost the same as the emrege -e system and emerge -e world I had done so i think it was a unnecessary thing to do for a full day (233 Mhz processor).
I recompiled kernel named it a special name
Code:
kernel--2.6.16-Gentoo-gcc-4.1.1-r9


Note: I added bmac to
Code:
/etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
then I removed it because I compiled it into kernel.

I figured the
Code:
  # make && make modules_install
would use the gcc 4.1.1 ?



Where in menuconfig is code? Cannot find searched here modules and code brings up alot though.

why do I need it?

I dont know if some things have to be modules or what not clear.

Thanks for reading and ANY ideas are welcome / appreciated.

I HOPE I did not I miss somthing in the ppc FAQ again!
:oops:

Emerge -e <something> will make emerge think no packages are installed yet, so using that option would indeed do pretty much what an emerge -e system would do. You don't want to use -e normally, you normally only use it if you want to rebuild your system.

You can check with gcc-config -l which gcc version you are using.

Are you sure your system booting your new kernel?
What does yaboot.conf look like? Did you add a new entry for your new kernel and run ybin -v?
