just wanted to let the libre-kernel people know about a possible bug in
the deblob script for version 2.6.33. in Gentoo, a "deblob" USE flag
allows any kernel available in portage or an overlay to be deblobbed and
installed. unfortunately, the deblob script seems to leave in a few
symbols that are causing the regular gentoo kernel, as well as the
pro-audio real time kernels not to build. there is a discussion and
solution over here:
in summary, the following changes had to be made to the .config to have
the kernel build:
i am no expert on the kernel or deblobbing, but it seems that these
non-free options are not being removed by the deblob script.
thanks for the great work in making GNU+Linux FLOSS.
