Hi,
I want to install Gentoo on a Apple iBook G3. I tried both CDs, the minimal and the universal, but everytime I boot the ppc32 kernel, on the monitor there are some messages and the laptop is frozen. The last two messages are
Code:

smp_core99_probe
core99_setup_cpu 0 done

I know that some other people had this problem too, but I couldn't find a solution.
Can somebody help me?

saw a bugzilla reference that said the last gentoo cd supporting the g3 was 2005.1
if true http://iso.linuxquestions.org/gentoo/gentoo-linux-2005.1/#power_pc appears still to have that version.

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Gentoo on PPC.

Moved here so it can get attention it deserves.

An iBook G3 or some other portable G3? If the former, try using this on the boot: prompt, that message happens when your video console doesn't start.

Code:

boot: video=ofonly
