I just finisehd to port genkernel on hppa but I only did it for 32 bit 2.4 kernels. I'll need more time to create a 2.6 config because it still really unstable on parisc (i.e. scsi drivers b0rked). For 64 bit kernels (some box require it) there is more work to do. I just integrated a 64bit toolchain into portage which need a little testing (I think SpanKY is testing it). 2.4 64bit kernel config is done but still need to be ported into genkernel (issues with insmod and so on). Also, I'll have to work with lu_zero to port gcloop for 64bit.

I consider the actual portage really stable for hppa. I've done all I can do to have it up to date. Btw, I'm in exams now. That means that I'll not be able to work on this until Jan 16 but most part of the job is done. I got portages snap, stages, grp, all in testing phase. I'll need to rebuild everything because of some bugs fixed and portage which have been updated in the meantime. This takes 3-4 days or perhaps more if I add kde to grp.
