Comment 1 Alexander 2009-10-03 08:38:13 UTC
I tried to install it on kernel 2.6.26-r4 and installation succeeded... But can I find a way to install it on my 2.6.31 kernel?

What gave you the impression that Gentoo supports using upstream packages to install binary programs?
The only official way to install packages in Gentoo is through ebuilds. If there is no ebuild for a particular package, you'll have to write one or find someone willing to do it for you.
If the upstream installer puts any files outside of /opt, you may just have borked your system and you may have a hard time finding anyone willing to help you fix it. That is why you should never install any upstream package directly.
Comment 5 Patrick Lauer gentoo-dev 2009-10-03 14:58:03 UTC
We can't handle random third-party installers that do things in various flavours of wrong ...
Comment 6 Alexander 2009-10-03 20:44:23 UTC
Thanks for support. I just rolled back to kernel 2.6.30-r6 and successfully installed this package. I suppose that problem is that Parallels doesn't support 2.6.31 kernel.
