<br>Hi!<br><br>&gt; Date: Tue, 25 Nov 2008 12:33:49 +1100<br>&gt; From: anomaly256@...<br>&gt; To: gentoo-ppc-dev@g.o<br>&gt; Subject: Re: [gentoo-ppc-dev] Playstation3 port status woes<br>&gt; <br>&gt; I intend to spend some time on this over the next few weeks.  Anything<br>&gt; I can do to help take some of the load off?  Are there any style<br>&gt; guides for the docs and boot/install media or templates to follow?<br>&gt; Requisite lists?<br><br>(I offered for the same task, a bug was started so I could join gentoo but since then didn't get a reply).<br><br>&gt; <br>&gt; On Tue, Nov 25, 2008 at 12:25 PM, Joseph Jezak &lt;josejx@g.o&gt; wrote:<br>&gt; &gt; Wes wrote:<br>&gt; &gt;&gt; Thanks for the response!  I see now.  I think the problem from my<br>&gt; &gt;&gt; perspective then is that the docs need to be updated a bit, as they<br>&gt; &gt;&gt; all point to the 'experimental' sections of the mirrors, which only<br>&gt; &gt;&gt; contain old 970-targeting ps3 stage4's.  I see now that 'releases' has<br>&gt; &gt;&gt; more generic stage3's suitable for rebuilding specifically for<br>&gt; &gt;&gt; Cell/BE.<br>&gt; &gt;&gt;<br>&gt; &gt;&gt;<br>&gt; &gt; That may be the case, but as of right now, PS3 isn't specifically<br>&gt; &gt; supported, and probably won't be officially supported until we have a<br>&gt; &gt; reliable bootable disk.  Once we do, I'd be happy to add the PS3<br>&gt; &gt; specific sections to the Gentoo/PowerPC handbook.  As it stands, the<br>&gt; &gt; install procedure is basically the same as any other unsupported<br>&gt; &gt; architecture in Gentoo (make it boot, then use our stages), but with the<br>&gt; &gt; benefit of supported keywords and stages.<br>&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt; If there is Gentoo documentation that you think needs to be updated to<br>&gt; &gt; reflect this, please let me know and I'll get it fixed.<br>&gt; &gt; Thanks,<br>&gt; &gt; -Joe<br>&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; &gt;<br>&gt; <br><br>Will this bootable disk be only to the ps3? What problems are you having building it?<br><br>If so, afaik the livecd and stage4 could be released in the same file, since a livecd can be only a stage4 with a specific boot config file if I recall. A simple install procedure could be written so a user would approprietly copy the cd contents to the disk. (I was actually writting a GTK gui that did just that along with specific ps3 configurations). It's really annoying to compile everything from a stage3, are you dropping stage4 support for it?<br><br /><hr />Receba já a próxima geração de serviços Windows Live! <a href='http://get.live.com' target='_new'>Clica aqui!</a></body>
