To save on confusion and the hassles that people are having with getting kernel sources we brought back sabayon-sources for portage users.

so if you need kernel sources as they do not come with the install,

Code: Select all

layman -S

Code: Select all

emerge sabayon-sources
please install the version according to your

Code: Select all

uname -r
its a meta package for the linux-sabayon-sources

entropy users:

Code: Select all

equo install linux-sabayon-sources
hopefully this will clear up issues with all the kernel sources issues we are seeing on forum and in irc

:D

I'm a gentoo user, but I would like to use the sabayon kernel because it's more bleeding-edge and its default configuration includes most drivers (unlike the one for gentoo-sources).

Is there a reason to have sabayon-sources in the sabayon-distro overlay instead of sabayon?
There are several kernels in the gentoo main tree, so an additional one won't seem out of place IMO.
Also, since the name of the package is different there should be no changes for gentoo users that don't explicitly emerge that package.

I have now added the sabayon-distro overlay to my gentoo system to get the sabayon kernel, but now "emerge world" chooses some other sabayon packages, so I can't easily update my system anymore.
The kernel seems to work though (I emerged it with USE=sources_standalone as suggested in the forums, I don't know if this matters).

EDIT:
By hardmasking the whole sabayon-distro overlay and then unmasking sabayon-sources I can now emerge world again and avoid getting other sabayon packages.
Still, I think that moving the package could be useful to other people, if there are no problems in doing so.
