Subject: [gentoo-user] [HEADS UP] New kernel version 3.0 breaks build of latest python updates

1 This will affect (I think) only ~arch users.
3 If you are running the new linux kernel version 3.0, you will
4 find that today's update of python will fail with the error
5 "plat-linux2 not found".
7 That's because the python configure scripts will detect the
8 version 3 kernel and will try to use "plat-linux3" instead of
9 "plat-linux2".
11 To finish today's update of python2 and python3, just boot
12 with any kernel-2.6.x and repeat the python update.
