On my Gentoo boxes, I use a Gentoo kernel since most people will expect that on the Gentoo forums you're using a Gentoo kernel...
Which really doesn't matter as most of the times I end up ruling out all Gentoo hacks as the reason for feature X not working and it gets redirected upstream anyway...

I guess it doesn't matter for me either way, whichever happens to be ready and uncompressed gets used... I don't think I'm going out of my way to patch all of Gentoo patches to build a kernel for non-Gentoo box...

mm-sources, viper-sources, nitro-sources, no-sources, kamikaze-sources, etc. I like to try them all. I am a fan of Reiser4, and many bleeding edge patchsets.

Well, I'm using/maintaining my own, not controlled by the package manager.

Heck, I just booted the new 2.6.23 with CFS and Realtime patches... that thing is fscking fast!
Seriously, I never thought that random kernel hackery could give you that much of an improvement in terms of desktop performance, but this thing is really s(l)ick...

Darn, gotta get away from Gentoo, already sounding like a real ricer... ;-)

I'm still using 2.6.21-ck. SD works great and I've had nothing but trouble with 2.6.22. But I might give 2.6.23 a try someday when I'm sufficiently bored :wink:

gentoo-sources.

Nice, stable, nothing breaks, no drama, fully supported, no insanely short/long update schedule.

Exactly. I also use gentoo-sources, but I compile with my own config.

Normally gentoo-sources. I did use vanilla for awhile when something was broken. Eventually I figured out what was wrong with the .config.

vanilla-sources for 2 reasons. Third party patches are usually against the vanilla kernel, plus more people have access to it to find bugs.

Always gentoo-sources for me. They're mantained by gentoo team and are the default for kernel installation. As long as they work fine, I'll keep them :P

I use gentoo-sources plus the Reiser4 patchset, which has been rock solid for me.

I've been using ck-sources and viper branch. Now I'm using kamikaze sources. Excellent patchset.

Normally, id probably do Vanilla but, like everything else i fell on love with about Gentoo over the years the minimalist patches on are really nice.

:roll: Right. Sometimes I forget that there actually are cards where it works. I do not consider vesafb to be working though, as it is so slow it takes more than a second to display a manpage (on my machine). And it slows down anything with verbose output considerably, especially a plain emerge.

Me, I couldn't even live without Spcok's great new uvesafb. That thing is so great.

Gentoo sources on both my machines at home and suspend2-sources on my laptop. On one machine (which is more or less there for testing) I have different Kernels once in a while, but I usually stick to gentoo-sources most of the time, I do like vanilla-sources as well.

ha.. I think the poll needs more options. I usually use gentoo sources, but I have used vanilla and hardened. I tried nitro, but the power went out during the install and a few things got REALLY screwy.

How many supported kernels are there?

gentoo
vanilla
ck
hardened
mm
nitro
kamikaze

That's just off the top of my head.. and i'm not sure which ones are officially "supported"
