6 I have the grsecurity patch integrated in the gentoo 2.4.18 kernel and fixed the failed chunks, but I went on patching that tree and now it fails to compile for no apperent reason :). But the kernel with kerneli and grsecurity patches compiled fine, when I tested it. I'll set up another tree and apply grsecurity again and send you an updated patch when I get back from work :).
8 But while fixing the failed chunks, I did notice that there _could_ be some conflicts between POSIX ACLs and grsecurity ACLs, but I do not use ACLs yet, so I would not know if there _are_ conflicts.

12 There are some plans about a secure gentoo profile, read back in the archives :).
