1 Hello,
2
3 I would like to install my own version of the kernel (2.6.18.3)
4 which i have compiled and installed. This is working fine.
5
6 But when I try to do 'emerge system', portage is
7 trying to emerge linux-headers also. How can I prevent
8 it ?
9
10 Also , when using a homebrew source, how do I install
11 the linux-headers in /usr/include ? just copy the directory
12 from the kerenl source, or symlink it ?
13
14 To prevent portage from trying to install its own version
15 I have added the homebrew-sources-2.6.99.ebuild to the
16 /usr/local/portage.
17
18 When I do 'emerge homebrew-sources' I get the following.
19 I am confused as to what to do next. In the homebrew-sources
20 ebuild, the function are just dummy (returnning true)
21
22 any pointers ?
23
24 thanks
