Are there any Pegasos users?

Johannes Geiss-2
Hi here,

are there any Pegasos users using Gentoo?

Especially the hardware platform Pegasos II?

I am looking for experiences about building an own kernel for this
architecture. I compile them by myself for some years, but I think I could
be better if I find someone else who is building kernels for Pegasos
II. I am interested to exchange/talk about config files and so on.

Unfortunately Gentoo seems to have dropped kernel support for Pegasos
for some years. No installation disk contains a kernel for this
hardware.

Bye
Johannes

Hi Johannes,

I'm not a Pegasos user, but if you can get other Linux distribution running
on your system (e.g., some old version of Debian), you will be able to
build Gentoo from its environment.

you could get a working linux config (for peg2) from CRUX-PPC install iso.


cheers,
