maybe someone has seen this before. i couldn't find anything mentioning it...

i'm using BootX with the parameters (plus some video settings that apply to wallstreet powerbooks, worked with ubuntu) outlined in the install guide.

and here's where i wind up. it stops here, and reboots in a few minutes.

Code:

Welcome to Linux, kernel 2.6.17-gentoo-r5-apple

<some other stuff>

Preparing boot params...
Preparing BAT...
id mach(): done
MMU:enter
MMU:hw init
hash:enter
hash:find piece
hash:patch
hash:done
MMU:mapin
MMU:setio
MMU:exit


i have had ubuntu installed on this machine but i'd rather have gentoo :) anyone know what's wrong here?

2.6.17 has issues on OW machines if I remember correctly. I'd try either a newer or older kernel.

2006.0 should have come with a working kernel, or wait for 2007.0 (coming very soon).

i have it working now, booted with the kernel from the 2006.0 livecd and then installed 2006.1. i am currently running 2.6.17 with preempt, and it seems to be okay, even got my belkin wireless card (atheros chipset) working with madwifi.

so far, so good.
