. I only remembered it because I was in exactly the same
situation, trying to get genkernel to not overwrite my kernel config. I
remember being annoyed that genkernel didn't have a --no-oldconfig command
line option. I'm surprised it still doesn't. After all, several other options
have corresponding --no-* variants, like "--[no-]mrproper". Oh, well.
Happy to help (hey, that acronymises to HTH, too!)
