(I offered for the same task, a bug was started so I could join gentoo but since then didn't get a reply).

Will this bootable disk be only to the ps3? What problems are you having building it? If so, afaik the livecd and stage4 could be released in the same file, since a livecd can be only a stage4 with a specific boot config file if I recall. A simple install procedure could be written so a user would approprietly copy the cd contents to the disk. (I was actually writting a GTK gui that did just that along with specific ps3 configurations). It's really annoying to compile everything from a stage3, are you dropping stage4 support for it? _________________________________________________________________ Obtenha 30 Emoticons grátis para o seu Windows Live Messenger
