Then, again it seems all 2.6 serial kernel are marked by package.mask
- sys-kernel/vanilla-sources-2.6.19 (masked by: package.mask)

# We mask core 2.6 stuff to avoid bootstrap issues
Do people on this list use 2.6 kernel? I currently have two problems
related to kernel that made me wish to try 2.6
I. the RAID bus controller "VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6421 IDE RAID
Controller" do not work even if all IDE controller drivers are
compiled as module on 2.4.32-sparc-r2 sparc-sources kernel. I
hope by installing new kernel there will be better driver
support and thus is looking forward to install new kernel
II. the keyboard sucks
