Hi,
I'd like to check out the 2007.0 release on my power mac g5. Is the live_cd going to be available soon?

there won't be an official live cd. You can install your G5 using the install cd found in releases/ppc/2007.0/ppc64/installcd on your favorite mirror. there _is_ a beta live cd in experimental/ppc64/livecd.

PPC64 doesnt officially support livecds; we only make installcds for the releases. The livecd contains X and usually gnome and is knoppix like plus has an installer (sometimes). the installcd comes as either minimal or univeral. both of which are command line based and its sole intent is to allow you to install Gentoo.
