6 When I upgrade a kernel, I first change the symlink using eselect to
7 point to the source I'm about to install. Then, after I configure and
8 compile the kernel, I use the "module-rebuild rebuild" to rebuild any
9 kernel modules against the new source. Move the bzImage to /boot,
10 reboot, and that's it. I don't know how genkernel changes any of this
11 - I use manual menuconfig.
