Subject: [gentoo-user] Confused about latest gentoo-sources
Date: Wed, 08 Mar 2006 16:26:19
1 I did an emerge sync a few days ago. If I run emerge -s gentoo- sources
2 I get:
4 sys-kernel/gentoo-sources
5 Latest version available: 2.4.31-r1
6 Latest version installed: 2.6.14-r2
7 Size of downloaded files: 31,219 kB
8 Homepage:
9 Description: Full sources including the Gentoo patchset for the
10 2.4 kernel tree
11 License: GPL-2
13 sys-kernel/vanilla-sources
14 Latest version available:
15 Latest version installed: [ Not Installed ]
16 Size of downloaded files: 38,905 kB
17 Homepage:
18 Description: Full sources for the Linux kernel
19 License: GPL-2
21 Do I have to switch to vanilla-sources now to get the latest kernel?
22 Won't I lose some newer features if I use 2.4.31-r1?
24 If I understand the above output correctly I have already installed the
25 gentoo-sources kernel, but now they have moved back to the 2.4 series.
26 Where can I find out what is going on?
28 Thanks for any clarification.
