As far as I know - gentoox do not support Kernel 2.6 yet - Do you really need it? - I'm quite happy running the new 2.4.32 kernel..

Congrats - Shallax

Congrats on the exam results.. You must be sort of superhuman to manage this and still getting enough free time for Gentoox..

Are these your final exams? What's the plan now? - Job hunting?
