Hi,
I'm having problems running the Gentoo LiveCD on my iMAC G5. At the boot prompt I'm typing:

apple video=nvidiafb
or
apple video=ofonly

I get the same result an "Invalid memory access" error, here's the boot upto the error:

found display :/pci@0,f0000000/NVDA,Parent@10/NVDA,Display-B@I

copying OF device tree...
building dt strings...
building dt structure...
Device tree strings 0x01ef2000 -> 0x01ef358a
Device tree struct 0x01ef4000 -> 0x01efe000
calling quiesce ...
returning from prom_init

Invalid memory access at SRR0: 00000000.014038dc SRR1: 10000000.00083030

Then I get message from Bootrom

part of which is:

Apple PowerMac8, 1 5.2.2f4 11/09/04 at 11:06:15

I would greatly appreciate any help as I would like to tryout the Gentoo Live CD.

regards

David

Which CD exactly are you trying to use? You should be using a PPC64 CD with the iMac G5.

Hi,
I was using the ppc not the ppc64, i'll download the ppc64. Thanks for the quick response.
