Yes that's true we can drop that stuff.

The problem in the last weeks was, that 2.4.0-final kernels where definately not stable and I way allways busy making new kernel-packages. The lates 2.4.0ac8 seems to be stable, so I will copy that to linux-sources. I presonally prefere the following method if I need a special kernel. First I run "ebuild kernel unpack", then I cd into /tmp/portage/linux....../work/linux and configure the kernel or I copy my private config and autoconf.h manually to the workdir. After that I continue with "ebuild kernel compile". Jerry can you send me modified .config and include/linux/autoconf.h version that include a usefull pcmcia-support? Bye Achim
