Porteus Kernel Builder

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

mkKernel-17.11.15-noarch-1.xzm (3.7 M)
http://www.mediafire.com/file/cvmi61rre ... arch-1.xzm
md5sum: 61c009f1a0ac1f2610e6e6ef0f795997 mkKernel-17.11.15-noarch-1.xzm

The functions of Porteus Kernel Builder are as followed.
1. detect latest kernel version.
2. download kernel source (compressed).
3. download and create the AUF patch that corresponds to the kernel version.
4. get prototype config.
5. expand kernel source and adapt AUF patch.
6. build kernel.
7. replace kernel of ISO with new one.

[How to use]
step 1. prepare compile environment.
get 05-devel.xzm for your architecture from Porteus release site.
activate "05-devel.xzm".
This prepare is needed for the following actions only.
1)getting AUF patch
2)adapting AUF patch
3)building kernel

step 2. set working direcory.
First, prepare the directory for 'Porteus Kernel Builder'.
This direcory must be in LINUX file system (ext4 etc.,).
Select this in "Kernel Builder directory" of "setting window"

step 3. select kernel version.
select kernel version line in left item of "Kernel Version" of "setting window".
right item will display the latest version of the line.
if older version is needed, select kernel version in right item.

step 4. (option) "Build kernel" circle
"32Bit/64Bit" item: (first, display running PC architecture)
---->select compiling architecture.

"download" item: (this action needs 05-devel.xzm for getting AUF patch)
---->if check it on, download kernel source and get AUF patch and prototype config.

"expand & patch" item: (this action needs 05-devel.xzm for adapting AUF patch)
---->if check it on, expand commpressed kernel source, adapt AUF patch, and set config.

"own patch" item:
---->if check it on, "own patch" is adapted.

"compile" item: (this action needs 05-devel.xzm for building kernel)
---->if check it on, build kernel and set vmlinuz & lib.

"cleanup" item:
---->if check it on, cleanup expanded directory.

Note:
Each item can be set independently.
(example)
1st run: set "download" item and "expand & patch"
modfy config depending on own needs.
2nd run: set "compile" item.
check result.
3rd run: set "cleanup" item.

step 5. (option) "ISO whose kernel will be update" circle
select ISO whose kernel will be update.
"keep org" item: (default "check on")
---->if check it off, Target ISO will be treated as "APorteus" ISO.

Note: Current "own patch"
There are 2 own patches.
(1) patch to drivers/acpi/sleep.c
to fix reboot/shutdown problem.
(2) patch to drivers/mfd/intel-lpss-pci.c
to fix "Touch Pad" problem.

"own patch" button is available for following version line.
=== version line 4.13 ===
patch to drivers/acpi/sleep.c
patch to drivers/mfd/intel-lpss-pci.c

=== version line 4.12 ===
patch to drivers/acpi/sleep.c
patch to drivers/mfd/intel-lpss-pci.c

=== version line 4.9 ===
patch to drivers/acpi/sleep.c
patch to drivers/mfd/intel-lpss-pci.c

=== version line 4.4 ===
patch to drivers/acpi/sleep.c
patch to drivers/mfd/intel-lpss-pci.c

=== version line 4.1 ===

Looks nice. :) Will try when my external disk made fit for linux in order to be able to hold all kernel sources.

Where do you fine these at or download them at?
This prepare is needed for the following actions only.
1)getting AUF patch
2)adapting AUF patch
3)building kernel
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

@Jack
Excuse me that I cannot understand your question exactly.
So, next answer might not match to the intend of your question.

1)getting AUF patch
activate mkKernel-17.01.01-noarch-1.xzm.
make the directory "your_Kernel_Builder_directory/vVVV"
change directory to "your_Kernel_Builder_directory/vVVV"
execute "/usr/local/share/mkKernel/lib/vLLL/get.aufs.patch"
"your_Kernel_Builder_directory/vVVV/aufs.patch" is gotten.

VVV:kernel version number. example 4.9.3
LLL:kernel "version line" number. example 4.9

shell script get.aufs.patch uses "git" comand.
"git" command is included in "05-devel.xzm".

2)adapting AUF patch
make the directory "your_Kernel_Builder_directory/vVVV/AAA"
expand kernel source in "your_Kernel_Builder_directory/vVVV/AAA"
change directory to "your_Kernel_Builder_directory/vVVV/ARCH/linux-VVV"
execute "patch" command with argument "-p1 < ../../aufs.patch"

AAA: compiling architecture. 32 or 64.

"patch" command is included in "05-devel.xzm".

3)building kernel
change directory to "your_Kernel_Builder_directory/vVVV/ARCH/linux-VVV"
copy "/usr/local/share/mkKernel/lib/vLLL/AAAbit.config here.
execute "make" command 4 times with each argument.

"make" command is included in "05-devel.xzm".


For more detail, please refer shell scripts;
/usr/local/sbin/guimkKernel
/usr/local/share/mkKernel/inc/*.inc


Thanks.

Hi neko. Do you have this file available for Porteus 3.2.2 Cinnamon 64-bit?
http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=140&t=6548&start=30#p52463 wrote:so most likely all that would be needed would be the replacement of vmlinuz.
And if so can it be used as a .xzm module or will I have to reference it outside of the ISO when booting. I do all my booting as ISOs, no installs, which is why I like Porteus. :)

Is your APorteus (Arch Porteus) nucleus the same as the Slackware one Porteus 3.2.2 uses?

Problem is that if update to 4.9.5, all drivers for 4.9.0 have to be recompiled or not? :unknown: If that be the case all that's needed is to use your tool to generate updated 4.9.0 iso.

@Ed_P
1."Do you have this file available for Porteus 3.2.2 Cinnamon 64-bit?"
Yes, I have. And you can get it.

(1) Download v4.9.5-2.tar.xz
v4.9.5-2.tar.xz (39 M)
http://www.mediafire.com/file/ehvz833ef ... 5-2.tar.xz
md5sum: ddd1e38da063a3a72698764232a5a430 v4.9.5-2.tar.xz

(2) Get vmlinuz from v4.9.5-2.tar.xz

Code: Select all

% su
# ls
v4.9.5-2.tar.xz
# xz -dc v4.9.5-2.tar.xz | tar -x
# ls v4.9.5/*
v4.9.5/a.patch  v4.9.5/aufs.patch

v4.9.5/32:
32bit.config  lib  vmlinuz

v4.9.5/64:
64bit.config  lib  vmlinuz
# mv v4.9.5/64/vmlinuz ToYourAnyDirectory/

2. How to adapt the new patch to Porteus ISO.
(1) Prepare "Porteus Kernel Builder" and v4.9.5-2.tar.xz.
Please refer to viewtopic.php?f=75&t=6568#p52232

(2) Expand v4.9.5-2.tar.xz in Your "Kernel Builder Directory"

Push "OK".


3. How to adapt the new patch to APorteus ISO.
(1) Prepare "Porteus Kernel Builder" and v4.9.5-2.tar.xz.
Please refer to viewtopic.php?f=75&t=6568#p52232
If you will this on APorteus running environment, "Porteus Kernel Builder" might be already added on.

Code: Select all

% su
# cd KernelBuilderDirectory
# xz -dc DownloadDirectory/v4.9.5-2.tar.xz | tar -x

Thank you neko. I did these steps, and modified my boot parameters to use the new vmlinux but the boot fails with a blank screen.

I then notice that there is a 2. step which I did not do.
2. How to adapt the new patch to Porteus ISO.
And which is more than I can do.
(3) GUI menu ----> "Porteus Kernel Builder"
The menu image you posted is actually labeled "APorteus Kernel Builder". :)
