You can replace the kernel of your Porteus ISO easy.

The following version kernel packages were built with the configuration "CONFIG_IPC_NS=y".


Please choice a kernel version.
Then, download mkKernel-17.03.14-noarch-1.xzm and it.

There are these files in ... 1a5#p52232

For example, v4.9.17.tar.xz;

Code: Select all

% su
# ls -1
# mkdir work
# cd work
xz -dc ../v4.9.17.tar.xz |tar -x
# activate ../mkKernel-17.03.14-noarch-1.xzm
# guimkKernel
<setting window>
"Kernel Builder directory"
"Kernel Version":.....................4.9.17
"ISO whose kernel will be update":....your Porteus ISO
Push "OK"
