59 +<p>
60 +Gentoo/Alpha stopped supporting 2.4 kernel and profile in January 2008.
61 +Technically you can build a 2.4 Gentoo System (the kernel is in the tree) but
62 +you will have to mask all the 2.6 only packages by yourself and you won't have
63 +support from developers.
64 +</p>
65 +
66 +<p>
67 +Gentoo/Alpha will review all bug reports about non working 2.6 systems and
68 +will try to help as much as we can.

79 -<c>hardened-sources</c> and SELinux support is being worked on by Stephen
80 -Bennett (<mail link="spb@g.o">spb</mail>). <c>hardened-sources</c> is
81 -currently keyworded for alpha. We hope to see an SELinux profile for Alpha in
82 -the tree as soon as we feel confident about it.
83 +Short answer is no. They were supported some time ago, but we lost the hardware
84 +and the maintainer so right now they are not supported. If you are interested
85 +and want to continue the initial work, please let us know.
