Hi, I tried to boot the minimal ppc64 iso on an iMac G5 with iSight (Rev C I think)
but after it boots the G5 kernel it hangs and the screen goes blank. It flashes
a few times and I cannot see that fast what happens on the screen, what should
I do? Is this iMac supported by Gentoo? Thank you, Eugen

Does anyone have instructions for installing Gentoo on an iMac G5 iSight (rev c), that allows fan control and install not hanging?
