The install CD for PPC64 contains a 2.6.11 kernel which I can use with my PPC 970FX. Where are the sources for this kernel? gentoo-sources is 2.6.9 and the ebuild for the vanilla-sources has been masked ...

Hrmmm, when was the last time you ran 'emerge --sync'? The 2.6.11 sources have been in the gentoo-sources tree for over a month. I'm running 2.6.11-r4 now:

Code:

emerge --search gentoo-sources

My appoligies, please disregard my previous message. Didn't notice that you are running on PPC. I need to remember that everybody doesn't run x86.

The latest stable gentoo-sources in Portage is 2.6.9, but there are also unstable versions up to 2.6.11-r5. To unmask them, create the file /etc/portage/package.keywords (create /etc/portage if you don't have it) and put this line there:
Code:
sys-kernel/gentoo-sources ~ppc

Read Portage's manpage for more info about unmasking packages:
Code:
man portage
