498Gentoo/Alpha stopped supporting 2.4 kernel and profile in January 2008.
499Technically you can build a 2.4 Gentoo System (the kernel is in the tree) but
500you will have to mask all the 2.6 only packages by yourself and you won't have
501support from developers.

505Gentoo/Alpha will review all bug reports about non working 2.6 systems and
506will try to help as much as we can.

497<c>hardened-sources</c> and SELinux support is being worked on by Stephen 517Short answer is no. They were supported some time ago, but we lost the hardware
