Ok, I would really like to do a PPC port of BLAG. The thing is, I do not know how to start.
I was advised to use Yellow Dog as a starting point. And I have done. I now have it installed on one of my PPC's. My iBook g4 to be exact.
I really have no idea where to start. Do I start stripping as much as I can from the default install or ?
I am not new to GNU/Linux, but this is the first time I have tried this.
I have used GNU/Linux for round about 3year. But nothing advanced. Just everyday things.
Would love some help...

Make a directory, and copy all the packages into it that are also on the blag CD. For missing ones, hunt around freshrpms, dries, etc (i'm not sure if they all do ppc or not). Then the ones you can't find there, start building RPMS with `rpmbuild`...
