It&#39;s been awhile since I played with gentoo-mips; however, the issue you are running into has to do with the fact that the Gentoo-Mips livecd is not, in fact, a true cd image. It is a HD image based on the Mips disc-layout scheme. This is mentioned in the readme included with the image(iirc, it also mentioned the build method for making the image, though not in any detail), which I believe was worked out by kumba or redhatter (not sure which one atm). If you really need help I suggest the #gentoo-mips channel on FreeNode. Someone in there will have had experience with your Octane2 machine; Me, I&#39;m an O2 man meself... :)<br>

hi,<br><br><font><font size="2">We are a group composed of four students in engineer
school and we work on a project which is to design a cluster with SGI
machines. We would like to install Gentoo on our machines (SGI Octane 2
MIPS) but we have many problems. Indeed, we need to modify the image
disk of the live CD in order to insert some software like GCC, Mpich
(because when we try to install Gentoo on the computer we have no x64
compiler on the live-cd and the installation by portage fail so it is
impossible to compile the kernel)... We would like you help to
understand how to mount the live cd image, it does not seems to be a
standart format. Could you help us to do that ? If you are interesting
to have the new live-cd we will create we will find a way to transmit
it to you.<br>
<br>
Yours sincerly,</font></font><br>
