Hello everyone
Forgive me if this is posted in the wrong section - I'm not sure if this is a hardware problem or something related to using HFS or specific to PPC.
I'm trying to install Gentoo with the ppc32 kernel on my Blue and White G3 and I get a kernel panic partway through--

I copied down some of the text before the panic occurs:

RAMDISK: gzip image found at block 0
RAMDISK: incomplete write (4191 != 32768)
write error

it says it detects:
0300 107016 hda driver: ide-cdrom
which confuses me; shouldn't the hard drive be listed here?

then it says:
No filesystem could mount root, tried: ext3 ext2 squashfs vfat iso9660 xfs
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)

I'm not sure what this is caused by. I tried installing OpenBSD from a CD which had a checksum verified (on another machine, so perhaps a faulty CDROM drive on this machine?) and OpenBSD said that many of the tgz packages that it was deflating had missing headers or were corrupt. What's up with this?

it´s fine here i think, everything ppc related is better located here, you should get more input in this section.

could be, specially if the same happens with other livecds. Any chance you can try with another cd drive ?

cheers
