13 I've been using vanilla-sources since September 2009, in all my
14 machines. I use systemd, so having the latest kernel version doesn't
15 hurt; a new vanilla-sources version is usually ready a few hours after
16 Linus releases a new kernel, and gentoo-sources takes at least a few
17 weeks, sometimes more.
19 As to how do I maintain them, I wrote a little utility that I've been
20 using from the last year or so:
24 With it, after I install a new kernel using the normal portage
25 procedure, I just do:
27 eselect kernel set <new-version>
28 kerninst
30 And that's it. Be aware that you need to provide your own kernel configuration.
32 Regards.
