Re: [ROOT] linux ppc64

Hi Henning,

    the problem is I don't have a machine to make the port on. I was 
thinking of putting Yellow Dog Linux on my G5 but have not found any 
time yet. The linuxppcegcs option is outdated and does not build ROOT in 
64 bit mode. A port would take from one to two days if I can get access 
to your machine.

Cheers, Fons.
