Well you're right about that. The current portage tree, in fact, has
2.6.34-r6 as the stable release.
I run a couple of small businesses, one of which (my music biz) requires
me to periodically do some traveling, so I'm away and pretty busy a lot.
My pattern has been to get my various Gentoo and Ubuntu systems into a

I'll probably get kernel 2.6.34, update udev, and give it another shot.
