I am in the process of installing Gentoo Universal 2008 on an Aluminum Powerbook G4 1.5ghz using a Lubuntu 12.04 DVD-RW.

SO far I've been working on this for 2 days and still can't figure out how to get it installed. Has anyone done a similar installation.

I'm able to boot into Lubuntu Live and connect internet. After that I open terminal and I type su>type a password but it tells me it can't be authenticated.

Any suggestions, thanx :)

Then what? You know of a guide that is more specific about partitioning on a Powerbook g4 1.5ghz and how to get Gentoo universal 2008 installed?

Is there a newer version for ppc that is simpler to install?

if lubuntu works like ubuntu you should gain root access
next
Code:
mkdir /mnt/gentoo
then use
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-ppc.xml?style=printable&full=1
or for 64 bit
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-ppc64.xml?style=printable&full=1


http://distfiles.gentoo.org/releases/ppc/autobuilds/ appears to have current minimal install cd iso's and stage 3 tarballs
