Hello catalysts, I need to build a systemd-based stage4 with a kernel.
I think this means I need to provide a binary kernel package "out of band" as suggested in the catalyst HOWTO, or switch catalyst to use genkernel-next.
I prefer to teach catalyst to use genkernel-next, because it simplifies my build system to have catalyst do everything. Iit was pretty easy to get this going. I'm attaching my tiny patches (against the 2.X branch) as a starting
place. These patches switch catalyst entirely away from genkernel and to genkernel-next, which does what I need but is a little heavy handed...
If this looks like a useful approach i'll be happy to try to integrate these changes more cleanly, perhaps by letting the user select (in the catalyst-spec) between genkernel and -next.
