Hi,

I'm trying to install gentoo into a ibm ppc64 lpar (logical partition).
As I can see there is only one stage3 tarball for both 32 and 64bit.
Now as I unpacked it there is no purebred 64bit profile any more:

Code:
(chroot) livecd / # eselect profile list
Available profile symlink targets:
  [1]   default/linux/powerpc/ppc32/10.0 *
  [2]   default/linux/powerpc/ppc32/10.0/desktop
  [3]   default/linux/powerpc/ppc32/10.0/desktop/gnome
  [4]   default/linux/powerpc/ppc32/10.0/desktop/kde
  [5]   default/linux/powerpc/ppc32/10.0/developer
  [6]   default/linux/powerpc/ppc32/10.0/server
  [7]   default/linux/powerpc/ppc64/10.0/32bit-userland
  [8]   default/linux/powerpc/ppc64/10.0/32bit-userland/desktop
  [9]   default/linux/powerpc/ppc64/10.0/32bit-userland/desktop/gnome
  [10]  default/linux/powerpc/ppc64/10.0/32bit-userland/desktop/kde
  [11]  default/linux/powerpc/ppc64/10.0/32bit-userland/developer
  [12]  default/linux/powerpc/ppc64/10.0/32bit-userland/server
  [13]  hardened/linux/powerpc/ppc32
  [14]  hardened/linux/powerpc/ppc64/32bit-userland
(chroot) livecd / #


But on an old machine with an old system I found one:

Code:
eselect profile list
Available profile symlink targets:
  [1]   default-linux/ppc/ppc64/2006.1/64bit-userland *
  [2]   hardened/ppc64

Ok, since then a lot of things changed but going backwards from 64 to 32bit?
Is there any chance to get a pure 64bit system?

not sure what is going on, ive never used ppc64.
I see in the mirrors that there apparently are some 64ul stages available ( at least according to the name ) and the documentation clearly states that both ul are supported.

could it be that you just picked the wrong stage ?

hope this helps.

cheers

Sorry, seems like I picked the one local mirror without the ppc64 stage.
But at the moment I'm not able to find this one again.
Now it seems every mirror I take a look at has the right stage.

Maybe I got up that morning using the wrong foot :lol:

But thank you very much for helping!
