Simplify kernel selection

Talk status
This discussion is done.

The steps to get aufs-sources in the right place could be a lot simpler. Instead of

root #emerge aufs-sources
root #cd /usr/src
root #rm -rf linux
root #ln -s aufs-sources-* linux

it could be as simple as

root #USE=symlink emerge aufs-sources


root #cat 'sys-kernel/aufs-sources symlink' >> /etc/portage/package.use
root #emerge aufs-sources

I completed this with the standard eselect tool as the symlink USE may be undesirable for those who set and forget it and become confused. --Grknight (talk) 01:49, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
