| 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.

Guy -
That should be fine :) Like I said to Kumba, don't kill yourself for
2.6. If it is not stable, then don't release it. You can always follow
up w/ 2.6 in 2004.1. As for gcloop, last time I heard we are not using
it this release on our livecds, so don't kill yourself on that either.


BTW - What's happening over in x86, PPC, and SPARC land?
