Is there a recent Gentoo Image for the PPC based boxes? Portage is broken on the older image from circa 2008.

I tried for ever and a day trying to patch up the old out of date version but gave it up in the end as a bad job. I then followed the instructions in the Gentoo handbook for doing a clean install and it worked a treat, saving loads of time. Just wish I'd done that at the beginning as I reckon I lost about a day and half trying to 'force' the updates. Oh well you learn by practice they say.

My PPC Gentoo stopped booting after a world update... something hanging during init. Not easy to debug without serial! :|

So I switched to Debian...

I upgraded Dave's Debian Lenny to Squeeze (6.0) and built a 2.6.37 kernel for it. So it's as new as Debian testing gets ;)
I have posted the Squeeze tarball here: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=22703&p=141066#p141066

Stonie.
