<more snippage> Hmmm ... I tried the kernel from your webpage, and it does indeed see the hard drive(and cddrive) on the SCSI bus according to the dmesg log, but the live boot fails because the cloop driver has unresolved symbols (kfree, do_generic_file_read, highmem_start_page, blk_dev, blk_init_queue, fsync_dev, kmap_high, printk, irq_stat, bksize_size,__cli plus others that scroll off screen) Going with the default Gentoo-1.4 kernel (2.4.21-ppc-r2) and trying to insmod your mesh.o causes the system to lock up hard. Am I loading the wrong module? Wrong order? Alternately, where are the cloop sources and where might I find a decent howto for making .isos? -dean takemori
