Hi, the reason that pegasos-dev-sources is marked stable is because it is the only kernel that fully supports the Pegasos at this time. gentoo-dev-sources has partial support for it, but lacks the necessary drivers for the builtin gigabit controller and an ugly bug-fix for the UHCI USB controller. I'm about to upload -r2 which contains a couple of bug- and security fixes as well as a couple of updated patches, hopefully that kernel will not have the bug you have encountered. //David Holm -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.2.4 (GNU/Linux) iD8DBQFA/i7+xVDe1wIoqX0RAmTNAKC3dCUJRNvFG7hsCmwNmN7L4nO4swCeMt5Z ilKImCOlrzSXRKWvuLFD2Dk= =0biP -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-ppc-dev@g.o mailing list
