I was going to give Gentoo another shot on my ol' SunFire V100's. Unfortunately, when booting the CD I received this message:
Quote:
* Populating /dev with existing devices through uevents ...
[ ok ]
* Waiting for uevents to be processed ...
udevd[7320]: '/sbin/blkid -o udev -p /dev/hdc4' [7427] terminated by signal 10 (Bus error)

udevd[7319]: '/sbin/blkid -o udev -p /dev/hda2' [7430] terminated by signal 10 (Bus error)
[ ok ]

Then the entire thing locks up. What could be the issue here?

Is it possible V100 is too old to be supported by the compiler settings used to build the CD? Best idea I can think of other than a generic bug.

Perhaps an idea is doing an install from another non-gentoo linux boot media into a chroot with a more generic stage3 as starting point, similar to how we often recommend system rescue cd instead of the gentoo disc on x86/x86_64.

Bus error is often an alignment problem. So maybe it was compiled with the wrong flags for your CPU or there is a problem in the application or toolchain.

I tried FreeBSD 9.1 (what it's running now) and the latest Debian CD.. both boot perfectly fine.

That's great, so you can use the Debian CD to install Gentoo. For the bus error it would be good if you report a bug if none already exists.

Just curious, but how would I accomplish this?

If you look through the gentoo install guide, you'll find that all the install disc is used for is partitioning the disk, setting up networking, extracting the stage image you start with, and chrooting into the extracted stage image.

After that everything running is code that you installed from the stage image or installed within the chroot - it's gentoo at that point and no longer the installation disk for all practical purposes.
