Thanks in advance to Mat and others who responded to my questions
over the last couple of days. The Mac Mini now boots Gentoo, starts up
MythTV automatically and runs very nicely as far as I can tell so far.
I still have some issues I need to solve and am hoping for some more
1) Sound. What's the proper Alsa driver for this machine? lspci shows

I'm used to seeing a sound chip listed on X86 machines but none here
so I assume it's buried in the chip set. What do I choose during
By the way - if it matters when I boot from the Gentoo install disk I
see this info on the screen:
driver = dmasound_pmac
I searched for dmasound in make menuconfig but it only finds Atari stuff.
rc-update show does not show Alsa running from the CD boot so I'm
unclear what sound driver this might be.
2) yaboot and the new kernel. Double checking the right steps
From the PPC install docs after I build the kernel I need to copy it to /boot
# cd /usr/src/linux
# cp vmlinux /boot/kernel-2.6.24-gentoo-r3_A
(Just appending _A so as to not overwrite the kernel I'm currently running.)
I would then modify my yaboot file like this:
and once everything is in place run ybin -v.
Does that sound correct?
I'm fine with cleaning things up later as this is a learning
experience for me. I don't mind doing things a few times to learn the
process. I just don't want to hose up the machine as it's currently
working and I'd prefer not to start over.
