Why isn’t any version of gentoo-sources 2.6.35 stable?
There exists a bug that appears with the combination of the dhcpcd module from baselayout-1 and kernel versions >= 2.6.35.
Since we could not use a stable kernel with a stable baselayout, arch teams were not keen on stablizing the kernel alone.
We have been working on the dhcpcd fix in bug #262097.
We have a working patch and Vapier has blessed, committed it and then released a new baselayout which uses it; baselayout-1.12.14.
On the other side, WilliamH and some others are working to stablize openrc which will make baselayout 1 obsolete. We are attacking this issue from both ends which will eventually result in a stable 2.6.35 kernel.
In the meantime, if anyone wants to test the new baselayout-1, please do so and report any bugs.
Thanks to the following users and developers for reporting, testing and contributing to the patch.
