Description Lars Weiler (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-26 03:55:15 UTC
The current stable genkernel-3.3.10 fails in, as it wants to copy the non-existant initramfs for the pegasos-kernel.

genkernel-3.3.11_pre3 contains a fix, which does an extra-check if a pegasos-kernel with --genzimage will be compiled.  I used the genkernel's pre-versions for test-builds, so I never saw that error before.

Either, upgrade genkernel in the 2006.0-snapshot or add the patch for copying the initramfs:

Please use genkernel 3.3.11_pre* which are in the official snapshots, as we will be using 3.3.11 final for 2006.0's release.
