Ok, I'm sort of new, sort of not (as some of you know) to Gentoo. A few years back, I used Gentoo quite religiously, but hardware changes happened, and I had to take a break. I'm back now, and up and running, with MUCH thanks from NeddySeagoon, and many others. I started out this time using genkernel, now I have everything up and running on this machine, rather well, I am ready to roll out my own kernel. When I was running Gentoo a few years back, I tried out several kernels, I recall my favorite was the Zen kernel for some reason, but I also used the Vanilla sources with some great satisfaction, as well as the normal Gentoo Sources with satisfaction.

One issue I'm having is I'm running an AMD RYZEN CPU, and I am experiencing some of the weird "not waking up" issues I've heard exists with these CPUs. It doesn't happen all the time, just here and there. Without starting a flame war, or an argument about kernels, I would like to get some info/advice on the available kernels, Maybe some pros and cons of the various kernels. Maybe one that will work a little better with my CPU, or not. I'm not even sure what wide variety of kernel is avalable in portage these days.

I can provide any hardware info that anyone would want, just ask, if it will help.

Thanks!

Todd

If you set up eix on your machine, including eix-remote, you will find 59396 packages in 246 categories.

todd93,

Stick with gentoo-sources for now. It will have better support than the others, for obvious reasons.
Do use a different version of the kernel to the one you used with genkernel. That way they will be kept separate on your system and you can choose which to use from the grub menu.
That makes it easy to recover when you build a dud ... and everyone does from time to time.
