I am experimenting with Gentoo on my WD MyBook Live 3TB drive and it's putting along rather well. The only issue is the patches for the SoC only work in 2.6.32. I was wondering if someone could keep the latest 2.6.32 branch on here for specific devices that only work with the older LTS 2.6.32 kernels.

The same could hold for the other 2.6.x LTS kernels. I'm not sure if anyone still uses the 2.4.x series. So far, the latest kernel revision was 2.6.32.61.

Simba7,

The ebuilds will be in the attic.
The main kernel source will still be on kernel.org and the ebuild will tell where to fetch the patches.

Its time to start your own overlay.

Thanks, Neddy. This little MBL is quite the capable system, except it's running a rather old version of Debian.

AMCC APM82181 800MHz (PowerPC 464-compatible)
256MB RAM
10/100/1000mbit Ethernet
Serial Port (via onboard headers)
1TB (or higher) HDD

I already repartitioned it so it goes 32MB on /boot (sda1), 1GB for swap (sda2), 10GB for / (sda3), and the rest (~2.98TB) for data (sda4). I have a recovery area (the original OS) on sda5, which takes up ~800MB at the very end of the HDD (which I'm booting from to build Gentoo). I just need to modify a few u-boot parameters after the build is complete.

I just had to get the last 2.6.32 kernel myself. In the end I had to get the vanilla-kernel - and that worked, then.

Just download this to your local overlay:

http://sources.gentoo.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/gentoo-x86/sys-kernel/vanilla-sources/vanilla-sources-2.6.32.60.ebuild

then run ebuild vanil* digest; emerge =sys-kernel/vanilla-sources-2.6.32.60

My OLPC boots again.
