Hurray! At last! Code: Shelob ~ # emerge -pv gentoo-sources These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies... done! [ebuild NS ] sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.24-r3 USE="-build -symlink" 45,724 kB Total: 1 package (1 in new slot), Size of downloads: 45,724 kB I'm going to recompile the kernel and update some other packages too on my home-server. So if you are missing some pictures in my posts, then it is down. Should not take too long though (I hope). And why am I eagerly waiting for this specific kernel? Because the CONFIG_NO_HZ kernel configuration option should now be available to 64bit. This option is required to get any kind of longer sleep times in the CPU, making it conserve more energy.
