Hi,

I have never managed to install Gentoo on my Ultra 10. I always screw-up, and it never boots. Would anybody out there be prepared to do it via SSH, as mentioned in the install handbook?

I know this is a cheeky question, but I have tried so often and failed, I am about to abandon Gentoo and move to Ubuntu.

Cheers,

Chris.

Willing to help you work through it, but not SSH in and do it. What kinds of problems are you having? The more data you can post the better we can help :D

holler back if you want me to help. but I've only even installed sparc-gentoo on my enterprise systems. never even seen a U10 or U5 before. but i did manage to get it running on my 2 E4500s, e450, and e250. maybe we could figure out some way of sharing a screen session so you can see how i'd go about doing it.
