Hi,

Did you try to follow this :
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/2008.0/handbook-ppc.xml ?

I installed gentoo on my iBook g3 with this handbook and it worked fine for
me.

Cheers,

What do you mean by the precompiled kernel ?

Why would you use the handbook for x86 ?

Perhaps try the handbook for ppc, if you get stuck on a particular step,
ask about that step. There is also #gentoo-powerpc on irc, kinda quiet
there sometimes so you might have to wait a while.

Re: how to install gentoo with livecd kernel file on ibook G3? [In reply to]

Hi,

the pre-compiled kernel (which the cd boots from) is placed in
the /boot-directory of the cd, I believe.

You can copy it from there to your mounted gentoo-partition.

Maybe you also should copy the initrd/initramdisk from this directory
and the /lib/modules-dir.

And of course, you need to add it to yaboot manually.

But I've to say, this kernel is pretty generic, and won't fit your
hardware in an optimal way.

I only used it as a fallback-option once, when I remote-set up a
headless
system and it worked so far, but better build your own kernel.

Regards,
Friedrich

Re: how to install gentoo with livecd kernel file on ibook G3? [In reply to]

The kernel can be found at: /boot/ppc32

You will also need the modules and initrd to actually use this kernel.
It's really not recommended as it's configured to get the most machines
booting, not take advantage of any of your hardware. It would be better
to simply install the kernel source and use "make defconfig" to achieve
largely the same results.
