A little while ago an update pulled in gentoo-sources-2.6.35-r4, which I build and tested, and now use daily. I removed the old kernel, 2.6.34-r6, but today an update pulled it back in again. emerge --depclean will remove it, but another emerge will just bring it back. Why is this happening?

gentoo-sources-2.6.35-r[x] was reverted back to ~arch because of some prominent bugs. I'm assuming you are using the stable branch of Gentoo. If you want to avoid the downgrade (and continue to use -35 series) just keyword gentoo-sources until this get's sorted out.

edit: znurt.org is great for checking out packages and stable/unstable ... here is gentoo-sources breakdown.

OK, thanks. I guess I'll go back to 2.6.34 then.

Moved from Kernel & Hardware to Duplicate Threads, please see Why has gentoo-sources 2.6.35 been masked as unstable?
