Installation does not provide the .config of the default kernel (2.6.24-gentoo-r5)
.config is usefull for many ebuild (drivers):
"* The die message:
* Kernel not configured; no .config found in /usr/src/linux"
So, I think it can be a good idea to provide this file.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Try to emerge a driver (for example ati-drivers or gspcav1)
That won't help. You'd also need kernel sources, which we don't have either for a networkless install.
You need to emerge gentoo-sources and then build your own kernel if you need to build any packages that use the kernel sources.
Well, but, perhaps you should provide it (kernel source with .config), in portage tree for example.
Thank you to answer so quickly
