For a long while, the most time-consuming and potentially error-prone part of installing Funtoo Linux has been building a kernel. I worded to make this better by creating the debian-sources kernel, when combined with the "binary" USE flag will build you a kernel that just works. The problem: the compile time is excessive -- it can take an hour or more even on relatively modern hardware.
To make installing Funtoo Linux even easier, stage3's are now including debian-sources pre-built! We're using the Funtoo compute power made available by Funtoo supporters to save you time and hassle when installing Funtoo All you need to do is configure a boot loader and you're ready to go
I enabled this yesterday on our build servers, so it will take a few days before all stage3's are updated to include debian-sources. If they have a date of 2015-05-11 or later, they should have a kernel and initramfs included.
If you still want to build your own custom kernel, it is easy enough to unmerge, remove kernel and initramfs, and build your own.
