Hello everyone,

So I have a iBook G3, like the one described here http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/ibook/stats/ibook_500.html

I'm trying to boot it to the latest build of the minimal ppc image. The disk will show up in the boot options and I can chose it.

The problem comes after a little bit of the disk spinning it drops me into Apple's Open Firmware prompt with a message at the top of the screen reading:
Code:
Invalid memory access at %SRR0: 00200008 %SRR1: 00083030


Does anyone have any suggestions? I appreciate the help.

Thanks,

Smerky

this looks like a hardware problem to me; does this only happen when you try to boot the gentoo live-cd or does it happen with any livecd ?

cheers

Are you sure you booted the correct kernel? I've seen that error message when people boot a 64 bit kernel on a 32 bit machine.
