372
373<p>
374<c>gaming-sources</c> was a 2.4 kernel with a broken scheduler patch applied
375which enhanced performance in games. It was removed from Portage because some
376problems accumulated, and the scheduler work being done in Linux 2.6 at the
377same time offered the same or even better performance.

385
386<p>
387<c>gs-sources</c>, once advertised as our server-style patch set, became a
388testing ground for prerelease 2.4 kernels. Unfortunately, the maintainer
389became inactive and this kernel detoriated with new system updates and
390became out of date.

399<p>
400<c>ia64-sources</c> was a 2.4 kernel with some fixes applied to provide
401improved hardware compatibility for the IA-64 architecture. These fixes are
402now included in the mainline 2.6 kernel tree, so this package was no longer
403useful.
