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
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
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
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 22.214.171.124 and post my results. and i will post the .config too
