Description Jiri Tyr 2005-08-09 15:54:29 UTC
Why are RC versions of sys-kernel/vanilla-sources in portage tree as a testing
if it is at only as a develop version? Why it is not testing / hard
masked? If I need last stable (at stable) kernel (not RC) then I have
no chance to get it, because if RC is in portage tree relased, then last stable
(at stable, in portage tree is it still testing) version is replacet
with this RC (in portage tree is it testing).
It will be better to set RC as a testing / hard masked or make special branch of
kernel ebuild, someting as a vanilla-development-kernel.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

There is no valid reason to hardmask them. You can hardmask them yourself, like
any other package.

echo "=sys-kernel/vanilla-sources-2.6.13_rc*" >> /etc/portage/package.mask
Comment 2 Jiri Tyr 2005-08-09 16:28:29 UTC
echo "=sys-kernel/vanilla-sources-2.6.13_rc*" >> /etc/portage/package.mask
echo "sys-kernel/vanilla-sources ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords

OK, this works. Thank you.

By the way, can you explain me why is vanilla-sources in portage tree set as
stable if in kernel < was found some bugs?
