Hi,

I've been a Debian user for years but i'd like to move to Gentoo. I've read through the installation tutorials and i'll do the install soon.

As i've been using GRSecurity to patch my kernel before, I was wondering if Gentoo followed the same principle, or if the hardened-sources came with the GRSecurity patch already applied to them (as the two projects seem closely linked together throught the "Gentoo Hardened" initiative, i wasn't sure...

THanks for your help.

Yes, hardened-sources includes the grsecurity patch. You can see the specific grsecurity version of a given kernel by looking in the ChangeLog.

As Hu was kind enough to answer already, it might just cover your next question :)

Thanks guys. @Krinn, i have read the several wikis as i'm preparing an install. But this point is not clearly stated in what I could read maybe except in the last question of the FAQ:
Quote:

Usually we release a new version of hardened sources not long after a new PaX/Grsecurity patch is released,


. There are several aspects, for instance compiling with more security-related flags when choosing which profile to use, so i was a bit confused with how integrated together are Gentoo and Grsecurity.
