Thanks --- I was about to put Linux on an old Powermac 7600 and may try
the gentooppc build since I'm using gentoo on my P3 system. I
immediately encounter a question:
What is the format of initrd.img? Is that a raw image? BootX docs
claim that the ramdisk image for BootX MUST be named
"ramdisk.image.gz". I suspect that BootX will always attempt to ungzip
the image. (I tried booting via BootX and selected the initrd.img as
the ramdisk image but the kernel aborts with a kernel panic because no
init is found).
BootX is the only way to boot a Linux kernel on my Old World 7600.
Since I'm an Apple sales rep I may use some slack hours testing the
installer on new Macs too.
