No problem in principle rebuilding the kernel - although my past experience is rather on the "make menuconfig" side, not genkernel.

However, I had tried that earlier today and ran into the snag

I wanted to rebuild the kernel with the RF_KILL options set to "no" but no success here:

Code: Select all
susanne admin # genkernel --kernel-config=/usr/src/config --menuconfig --bootloader=grub --splash=sabayon --disklabel --luks all
* Gentoo Linux Genkernel; Version 3.4.15
* Running with options: --kernel-config=/usr/src/config --menuconfig --bootloader=grub --splash=sabayon --disklabel --luks all

* Linux Kernel 2.6.38-sabayon for x86_64...
* kernel: Using config from /usr/src/config
* Previous config backed up to .config--2011-04-08--00-13-00.bak
* kernel: >> Running mrproper...
* ERROR: Failed to compile the "mrproper" target...

* -- Grepping log... --

/bin/sh: /usr/src/linux-2.6.38-sabayon/scripts/gcc-goto.sh: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/linux-2.6.38-sabayon/arch/x86/Makefile'. Stop.
* Gentoo Linux Genkernel; Version 3.4.15
* Running with options: --kernel-config=/usr/src/config --menuconfig --bootloader=grub --splash=sabayon --disklabel --luks all

* ERROR: Failed to compile the "mrproper" target...

* -- End log... --




That my come from having eselected the 2.6.38 kernel, original install was with 37.

Is it worthwhile to bother?

Nope! Just blacklist the module. Much easier.
