Project listing

The Distribution Kernel project aims to maintain sys-kernel/*-kernel packages. Those kernel packages have three goals:

  1. Covering kernel maintenance wholly within packages (install via emerge, upgrade as part of @world upgrade), without requiring additional actions from the user or resorting to nonportable hacks.
  2. Providing a default configuration that works for most of diverse systems, for users who are not interested in configuring their own kernel from scratch.
  3. Supporting different bootloaders and /boot layouts (LILO, GRUB, systemd-boot, EFI stub…) with minimal effort, including deploying self-built kernel binary packages over a fleet of heterogeneous systems.
