Update the kernel of Porteus v3.1

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...

1) I wasn't able to boot with your kernels with:

blacklist nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0

in /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-installer-disable-nouveau.conf

While trying to install nvidia driver.


2)I was able to compile and boot with nvidia driver on 3.18.19 kernel but can't do it with 3.18.21.
Had to compile it under kernel 3.17.4 with your kernel sources/configs

3)Your config files for 3.18.21 are rejected (being changed) on x86_64 by make.
Suggestions/corrections/additions are always welcome.

@Kriss
I am sorry to trouble you.
I will check and report the result to you.
(except checking nvidia H/W that I don't have)

Thanks.

I just reported it so you know that something is wrong. =)
And it was from the beginning.

@Kriss
This is my report.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
I replayed building 3.18.21 64bit 000-kernel.xzm.

[preparation]
(1)linux-3.18.21.tar.xz
https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel ... .21.tar.xz
(2)aufs-3.18.14.patch, 64bit-v3.18.21-config
upkernel-3.18.21-noarch-1.xzm@usr/local/share/upkernel/config/aufs-3.18.14.patch, 64bit-v3.18.21-config
http://www.mediafire.com/download/l74f9 ... arch-1.xzm
(3)05-devel.xzm
http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/current/mo ... -devel.xzm

[operation]

Code: Select all

# uname -m

64bit-v3.18.21-config
aufs-3.18.14.patch
linux-3.18.21/
linux-3.18.21.tar.xz
vmlinuz
The build was done completely.

I noticed the difference of 3.18.19 and 3.18.21.
Only 3.18.19 000-kernel.xzm includes /etc and /usr.
2 files:
/usr/doc/broadcom-sta-6.30.223.141/LICENSE.txt
/etc/modprobe.d/broadcom_blacklist.conf

Code: Select all

# Default driver for supporting broadcom wifi chipsets is proprietary broadcom-sta (wl.ko).
# Please refer to 'Broadcom wifi under Porteus' HOWTO
# in case when you want to use the opensource drivers (b43/brcmsmac):
# http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=1099
#
# Blacklist opensource drivers they wont interfere with wl.ko:

blacklist ssb
blacklist bcma
blacklist b43
blacklist brcmsmac
I built new 3.18.21 64bit 000-kernel.xzm that includes these /etc and /usr.
But I can not say that the new one will be effective to fix you trouble.

new.000-kernel.xzm (17M)

Best regard.

A simple question here. Is it possible to build linux-4.2.3 with the kernel headers that come with? And then could I use these kernel headers with another distribution with the same kernel version?

@francois
It is the investigation.

That it was found so far
that the "kernel version 4.2.3 source" can not be compiled
in "Porteus V3.1 and 05-devel.xzm" environment.

Code: Select all

gcc: error: unrecognized command line option ‘-fstack-protector-strong’
Thanks.

2.could I use these kernel headers with another distribution with the same kernel version?

Sorry, I can not answer exactly.
Because there may be many conditions on compiling kernel.

So, I have compiled linux-4.2.3.
The result was uploaded.
Please refer to the top article of this thread.
You can compile it too.

Thanks.

@Bogomips
I tested that UP.Porteus-KDE4-v3.1-x86_64.iso runs.
It did not report a notification.
My PC doesn't have a NVidia environment.

If you have a available time,
please build v4.2.3 kernel with tuned configuration just fit your PC.


Porteus-KDE4-v3.1-x86_64.iso:
gotten from
http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/current/Po ... x86_64.iso

UP.Porteus-KDE4-v3.1-x86_64.iso:
created by upkernel4 command

Thanks.
