"The Gentoo Distribution Kernel project is excited to announce that our new Linux Kernel packages are ready for a wide audience! The project aims to create a better Linux Kernel maintenance experience by providing ebuilds that can be used to configure, compile, and install a kernel entirely through the package manager as well as prebuilt binary kernels."

@hund Haven't used Gentoo in over ten years but I have very fond memories of it. This sounds like great news.

@hund Yeah. I kinda want to but I only would on a hobby machine (which I don't have, lol). On my main machine (which I also use for work) I have a very low tolerance for things not immediately working. I don't want to *have to* tinker or wait for something to compile, etc..

I like to dive in, configuring all the nitty gritty when I feel like it. I hate to be blocked by it.
