the gentoo handbook tells you how to configure the kernel. http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-ppc.xml?part=1&chap=7 Code Listing 3.1: Invoking menuconfig # cd /usr/src/linux # make pmac32_defconfig # make menuconfig the default enables most if not all the ppc options you might need. after you get it working you will probably want to start removing some. matt
