Hey all,

I want to install a 64bit kernel version of gentoo on an old mac xserve.

I downloaded install-powerpc-minimal-20091018.iso and this does not boot, it doesnt even come up in the boot up manager.

I figured I needed a 64 bit version so I downloaded install-ppc64-minimal-2007.0.iso

The problem is that the install-ppc64-minimal-2007.0.iso cd does not have the drivers i need for a net install. I need the tg3 module.

Is there a newer 64bit minimal cd? Is there something else I can do.

Eamonn

Do you have a 64-bit processor, just pointing it out since this happens:

Which is an issue with someone trying to install a 64-bit operating system on a 32-bit operating system.

The 64 bit and 32 bit CDs have been discontinued in favor of a combined 32/64 bit installer. You must pick the right kernel at boot though. The combined powerpc CD should work fine in an XServe, are you sure it was burnt correctly? Can you see the contents from MacOSX?
