Subject: [gentoo-dev] Kernel Dependency Question

1 Wondering how the dependencies work for this situation....
3 If I install linux-sources-xxxxx and then build myself a kernel, it seems
4 that any package that requires linux-kernel-xxxxx goes ahead and installs
5 it.
7 It seems to me that the sources should (once compiled) give me eveything the
8 kernel package gives me. Is this the case or am I missing something? I
9 suppose I could change the deps in the ebuild but it would be better if
10 there was some sort of global override. I RTFM but didn't see anything that
11 explained this to me.
