Hi, all.

I originally posted this at the top of the forum, not noticing that I was replying to a sticky... my apologies.

Here is a normal entry:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi, guys.

Sorry to be a pain, but i'm really confused. i guess moving house was worse than I realized!!!!!

I now have my lovely litlle SS20 waiting for some Gentoo, but I have no idea which image to use.

In order of priority, this is what I would like to try:

1. Live CD for sparc32

2. anything for sparc32

3. something for sparc64 (which sounds like it shouldn't work).

Please advise (a URL would be helpful).

Thanks,

Chris.

adaptr,

Thanks for that. I'll have a read. A quick flick through didn't seem to indicate a URL for a good (preferably LiveCD) ISO. I have looked at the mirrors, but unless I am missing something, they seem to point at the 64bit version.

Can anybody help with a URL. I don't mind doing a Stage 1, but previous posts seem to infer that this could take weeks on my humble SS20.

Thanks,

Chris.

The stages are on the mirrors, but the LiveCD is still experimental; Google for "gentoo sparc livecd" and see what you get.

Adaptr,

Thank you for the Google advice, I don't know why I didn't think of that.

Unfortunately, it still only gives me 64 bit images :-( .

Thanks,

Chris.

Well, i've decided to download an image entitled 20050308. I don't think this is the most upto date telease, but it's the best I could find.

Yup,

As per new post, am now downloading an ISO, although it may be a bit old.

Thanks,

Chris.
