    Angry New kernel?

    Does anybody know when we can expect to see a newer kernel? My VPS servers seem to currently be running 2.6.18-128.7.1.el5xen which is old enough that it prevents upgrading of a good number of Gentoo base packages which is slowly making it impossible to update lots of other components on two hosts that I manage.

    Please understand, I get not upgrading kernels everytime there's an update, but there's threads on this going back to 2010 and it's almost 2012.

    in the moderator forum. matt@vpslink suggested a new gentoo template may be available in early november. I can only suggest private messaging him or opening a support request.

    A new Gentoo template really doesn't help existing installs unless you're willing to completely blow away your virtual machine and rebuild.

    gentoo is using a much newer kernel than is available in xen. I re-suggest you PM matt to get a direct answer as soon s possible.
