Hi - I've been trying to install gentoo 2008.0 for ppc using install64 from the boot menu.


The boot iso gets to the shell, but I cannot fdisk the disks - they are not there.
http://pastebin.com/m3418323a has the lspci, lsmod and modprobe -l output.

Looks like the kernel module isn't included in the boot iso's kernel.
I don't care which way I have to install this thing, I'd just like to install it and get on with the job.

Any suggestions?!

the driver you need should be CONFIG_SATA_SVW.
maybe you want to try an alternative boot cd, like systemrescuecd.

mylo78:
Which controller do you have the drive plugged into? The LSI RAID controller or the onboard K2?
