Hi, people. Last Gentoo livecd for Xbox 360 is from 2006 and I want to make a newer one. I just can't find the documentation on porting to new architecture and related process. I'm sure it is somewhere on the Gentoo website but I can't get to it.

Sorry for the lame request and thank you for reading.

It's not a new architecture - it's ppc64, same as PS3. Your only challenges are getting around bootloaders and finding out what drivers to use for what.

If it were really a new architecture, it would be FAR too much work for any one person - or even a group of "many" people to do alone.

My suggestion is to install using the old stuff, and then use catalyst or something like it to roll a new livecd.
