I'm running sys-kernel/grsec-sources-2.4.27.2.0.1-r1. I don't know much about the alpha-sources kernel, the gentoo-sources kernel, or alpha-specific features. I'm mainly concerned with security. I was running vanilla-sources but a security advisory came out a couple months ago where vanilla-sources was not patched as quickly as grsec-sources, so I switched to that. If you are concerned with security you might want to consider upgrading. 2.4.27 had several security patches, I believe. Allen --
