1 Hi Anthony ,
2 Thanks for your updating!
3 We are dedicating to make grub working at Gentoo for ppc64le.
4 Now the Grub can be compiled , but the grub command such as
5 "grub-config" can not work properly.
6 With below link , you can get a livecd of gentoo ppc64le here.We
7 use the grub binaries available that shipped from Redhat 7.1.
8 You can use virt-install or virsh to load the iso. you can
9 login with : root , password is admin.
11 Pls feel free to let me know if you have any question~ Thanks
