Hi Linus,
I've visiting at my parents house and gave 2.6.15-rc7 a try on my
dad's machine. This machine is his normal desktop box which I
administer remotely, as well as a MythTV server. The new kernel built
and booted fine. I then built the NVidia stuff. However when I tried
to build the ivtv driver from portage it failed:

* Determining the location of the kernel source code
* Found kernel source directory:
* /usr/src/linux
* Found sources for kernel version:
* 2.6.15-rc7

Most probably this is stuff the Gentoo devs will clean up when the
real kernel comes out but I *think* you were asking for this sort of
info so I'm posting it back.

Cheers to all,
