http://www.linuxforums.org – Hi, I'm a bit new to Linux and forums in general; but here's my predicament. I have a 15" G4 Powerbook, 1.33 GHz, standard issue, and I've been trying to put Gentoo on it. Whenever I pop in either the PPC Minimal CD or the PPC Universal CD, I hit return to boot the kernel, and the same error comes up: Invalid memory access at SRR0: 014072e0 SRR1: 00803030 Then the computer boots up the Apple Firmware in terminal form. The PowerBook is essentially clean, nothing on it except Apple apps and a few pictures and documents. I was wondering if anyone of this forum had any idea of what's going on. Thank you. (HowTos)
