When can it expected for ext4 to be included in genkernel default configuration?
ext4 went stable in 2.6.28 ( i think )
invoke genkernel with --menuconfig
then enable ext4 manually.
Created attachment 207409 [details, diff]
add ext4 to the default initramfs
ext4 must be included in the MODULES_FS list in /usr/share/genkernel/defaults/modules_load too.
This fix is trivial. I can confirm for sure on amd64. Any idea when this will be incorporated? If maintainers really need a diff of the config I can provide.
I attempted to include 'ext4' in MODULES_FS and even putting
a copy of ext4.ko in the /usr/share/genkernel/modules_load/,
but none worked either.
Should not it be as simple as that?
BTW, it was only first time I ever used genkernel.

This is done in git.
Note that it might be necessary to not only include ext4 into /usr/share/genkernel/defaults/modules_load but also in the specific arch-directories, especially if you are on a amd64 platform.
Push this please. In the recent 2 weeks, I bounced over this bug like 10 times (yes, I've installed quite *many* gentoo machines). Additionally, if you upgrade to a higher version of genkernel, it silently overwrites my configs. Please add something to /etc/genkernel.conf to allow me to specify additional modules.
This bug also exists for modules_load on ARM.
What is holding this up? I'm getting tired of my machines not booting after genkernel updates. Time to chattr +i /usr/share/genkernel/arch/x86_64/modules_load I suppose...
