Description Kelly Price 2007-01-15 20:37:56 UTC
Can we hard mask sys-kernel/vanilla-sources for 2.6.19 and  Since external modules can't compile against them (getting a sandbox violation, see bug 149307) their usefulness is questionable on modern desktop/laptop hardware.

2.6.18.x works, as well as which has the "don't store temp in kernel tree" patch.  I'm currently running and both ati-drivers, nvidia-drivers, and ipw3945 (after unmasking) compile cleanly against them.

Reproducible: Always

No, that'd be plain stupid.
Comment 2 Kelly Price 2007-01-15 21:05:43 UTC
Care to explain?  Or do we not get to prevent someone from using a broken kernel due to a stupid choice?

Comment 3 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-15 21:15:57 UTC
vanilla-sources is not a supported kernel on Gentoo. And anyone can upgrade to if they are using external modules, or patch this themselves.
