Hi,
I dont know about gentoo but just like point out the default .config in the
upstream sources does work for me, in case that information will help. maybe a
patch is not needed with later versions, I will report soon. 

I am not hiding, i just dont have the build anymore as not enough space, but i
will build the latest now and post the .config if you dont first.  the "patch" i
mentioned is just some small changes i describe below.

I just download the tar.bz2 sources from mirror of kernel.org and
  
make menuconfig 

to select the module i required for sound on sunblade 100, something like
snd_m5451 from memory.

That means the .config is the one provided in the sources. I have no idea if
that one is good for you. then 

make 

now it will crash and complain at a few times, the file name and line number is
mentioned in the error message, and just go into that file and comment out the
line that says 

static int errno;

as you will see it is already in unistd.h then enter make again
i did that about three times.

now need to become root or equivalent then 

make modules_install;make install (per the README)

the vmlinux is at the top directory. then rename it for example

mv vmlinux vmlinux.2.6.13

then make a initrd.img by this

yaird --verbose --output=/boot/initrd.img-2.6.13 2.6.13

then update the /boot/silo.conf in my case adding


image=/vmlinux-2.6.13
        label=mylinux
        initrd=/initrd.img-2.6.13

So it fairly well builds "out of the box" and i have sounds running nicely on my
sunblade 100 also video streams using vlc using windows streams but not real ;(


hope that helps. it is only describing my experience, it is not on gentoo, not a
guide or howto. but maybe it gives a clue to someone?

i will get the 2.6.13.4 and post my results. and i will post the .config too

thanks

jim
