Default Gentoo on PPC?


I'm having trouble installing 2004.2 on my 500Mhz NewWorld iMac. (I can't
seem to get Yaboot working. Either it gives me an error about the pci boot
string, it locks up with a grey screen or just boots into Mac OS X.) Is
2004.1 more stable? I'm looking for a ppc version of Gentoo that is known to
work with the iMac but which also supports x.org 'out of the box' -- I don't
want to use Xfree. Thanks.

Ed

You should try the gentoo-ppc mailing list for PPC-specific issues. Send an
email to gentoo-ppc-subscribe@lists.gentoo.org to subscribe. Also, there is the
#gentoo-ppc IRC channel on Freenode.

There aren't really such things as "versions" with Gentoo. You could do an
install from a 3-year-old LiveCD and have xorg working "out of the box" the same
as with a brand new LiveCD.
