Installation instructions for Powerbook G4
This discussion is still ongoing.
Hi, I have installed Gentoo on a powerbook G4 using the ISO file with a USB drive. The process is a bit tricky and I can help include it in the wiki. Please let me know how do I add the info. Here is rough outline:
. mount the iso image on loopback . create fat32 partition on a usb . cp -r all files from the iso . edit yaboot.conf and change dev from "cd" to "ud" . use "devalias" to find the usb disk is name ud . dir ud:1,\ to list file system . boot ud:1,\boot\yaboot
- Hi Min.xu , thank you for the information. I will alert the PPC team. Because it contains installation critical information, the Handbook can only be edited by Gentoo developers. You did the right thing by opening a discussion here. Please remember to also sign your discussions with the Signature & Timestamp button in the edit menu.
