I Put this in a script and execute it as root:
with alsa and nvidia:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
cp /boot/bzImage /boot/OLDbzImage && cp /usr/src/linux/.config /root/.config && emerge -C alsa-driver nvidia-glx nvidia-kernel vanilla-sources && rm -rf /usr/src/linux* && emerge vanilla-sources && cd /usr/src/linux && make menuconfig && make dep && echo "clean error" > /root/kernel && make clean && echo "bzImage error" > /root/kernel && make bzImage && echo "modules error" > /root/kernel && make modules && echo "modules_install error" > /root/kernel && make modules_install && rm /root/kernel && cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage && emerge alsa-driver && emerge nvidia-glx && opengl-update nvidia && echo "PERFECT"


without alsa and nvidia:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
cp /boot/bzImage /boot/OLDbzImage && cp /usr/src/linux/.config /root/.config && emerge -C vanilla-sources && rm -rf /usr/src/linux* && emerge vanilla-sources && cd /usr/src/linux && make menuconfig && make dep && echo "clean error" > /root/kernel && make clean && echo "bzImage error" > /root/kernel && make bzImage && echo "modules error" > /root/kernel && make modules && echo "modules_install error" > /root/kernel && make modules_install && rm /root/kernel && cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage &&  echo "PERFECT"


If you don't see "PERFECT" and /root/kernel doesn't exist : error in "make dep"
If you don't see "PERFECT" and /root/kernel exist : read it to see the error

make mrproper before make menuconfig should give less errors.

Remember, i removed and re-emerged the kernel, so /usr/src/linux is already as clean as clean can be.

you're right, make mrproper is one of the things i always do before recompiling. But since you remove /usr/src/linux it's not nesesary.
