Summary: The vanilla sources are the pure, unadulterated kernel sources as release by Linus Torvalds himself. No additional patches are applied.
Keychain 2.8.2 ReleasedKeychain 2.8.2, a maintenance and bug fix release, is now available.
Unfork Tree is Live!The "unfork" tree is now merged into the main Funtoo Linux tree, and Funtoo Linux is now using shards for core packages, x11 (including media libraries), KDE, GNOME, python and perl.
The vanilla sources supply the source code for the Linux kernel in an unadulterated form. Linux was ultimately created by Linux Torvalds, and the vanilla kernel is the result of what has been accepted by him into the kernel. There are no additional patches applied.
Often, you'll point /usr/src/linux to the source code of the kernel you are currently using.
To configure the kernel, you can do so with make menuconfig for a curses-based configuration menu, oldconfig for text only prompts. There is also an availability of building similar configuration menus for X windowing toolkits.
