Moved from Kernel & Hardware to Gentoo on PPC.

More likely to get relevant help here.

Do you even know how to compile kernels? If you don't, what is the purpose if the provided one works?

Read the handbook section on compiling the kernel, and also do
Code:
make mrproper
cp arch/powerpc/configs/ps3_defconfig .config
make oldconfig

before running make, and don't configure the kernel, this gives you the ps3 config.

You need "sys-apps/dtc" for compile ps3 kernel.

Actually (since what, 2.6.23?) DTC is no longer needed. Checkout the docs at Geoff's kernel page.

¿?

I was unable to compile "ps3-sources-2.6.23" (http://overlays.gentoo.org/proj/cell/browser/sys-kernel/ps3-sources/ps3-sources-2.6.23.ebuild) without "sys-apps/dtc".

Code:

cd /usr/src/linux
make ps3_defconfig
make install && modules_install

Correction: it's since 2.6.25.4, checkout "Revision history" here: http://kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/geoff/cell/ps3-linux-docs/ps3-linux-docs-08.06.09/LinuxKernelOverview.html
