Hi again, since 2.4 has been deprecated, which is the latest 2.6.x  
kernel with full support for SMP on alpha (titan)? Also, is written  
that gentoo-sources or vanilla-sources should work well the same, so I  
wonder which one I should try first.

Also, while I was trying the stage 1 installation I've went through an  
error emerging binutils:

/var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-2.18-r1/work/binutils-2.18/bfd/ 
trad-core.c: In function 'trad_unix_core_file_p':
/var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-2.18-r1/work/binutils-2.18/bfd/ 
trad-core.c:122: error: 'PAGE_SIZE' undeclared (first use in this  
function)
/var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-2.18-r1/work/binutils-2.18/bfd/ 
trad-core.c:122: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only  
once
/var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-2.18-r1/work/binutils-2.18/bfd/ 
trad-core.c:122: error: for each function it appears in.)
make[4]: *** [trad-core.lo] Error 1

I've found this:

http://sourceware.org/ml/binutils/2007-10/msg00003.html

that is a patch for glibc-2.4 but also works on 2.5
