Blank Screen When Kernel Starts with Gentoo LiveCD 2005.0
 
Hello,

I was trying to boot from the ppc minimal install disk, but when I thy to start the kernel, the screen goes black and nothing happens (even after extended periods of time). Anybody know what the problem is? I have a G4 iMac. Thanks.

your framebuffer is most likely not supported by the default (generic) kernel supplied by gentoo in the cdrom..

Ok thanks. Do you have any idea how to fix this problem?

when you first put in the gentoo cd and you get the "boot:" prompt type "gentoo-nofb" without the quotes. That will disable the frame buffer.
