Introducing Fusion Sources

Mitch and I, just started working on Fusion Sources. Like the glorious Zen Sources, ours are Sabayon-flavoured Linux kernel sources on steroids, containing Con Kolivas patchset (BFS included), BFQ io-scheduler, Reiser4, experimental btrfs patches, experimental drm patches, and experimental wireless-next drivers.

The first version of Fusion Sources has been tagged here. Sources and Binaries are now available in our Entropy repositories (currently sabayon-limbo) and Portage overlay (layman -fa sabayon). This early version doesn’t contain wireless-next, experimental btrfs and drm stuff, but we’ll get there on the next round.

If you are interested in joining in helping out with the patchwork, just jump into irc.freenode.net #sabayon.

Enjoy bleeding edge kernels from Sabayon.

    …at last I can stop rolling my own kernels ;D
    …and in such a nifty kernel too.

    It runs very well expect for a couple of issues with my video card which does not exists running standard 3.0 kernel or the real-time variant.
