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...

Can you add this to the next kernel build

1. AUFS patch for kernel 5.12-rc2 is not yet ready.
aufs5-standalone.git/include/uapi/linux/aufs_type.h:#define AUFS_VERSION "5.x-rcN-20210222"

(1)tmpfs-idr.patch patching is error.
(2)fs/aufs/vfsub.h is syntax errors at compile.

Note
You can build kernel 5.12-rc2 without AUFS patch and then get OVERLAYFS kernel.


2. The config was updated.

Kernel 5.11.6

A 5.0 desktop file invoking firefox 86.0.1 with a url results in firefox opening with no open tab. :o :unknown:

Added in 15 minutes 12 seconds:
The 5.0 desktop file invoking firefox 86.0.1 with a url works with kernel 5.11.0.

Porteus 5.0 rc2 Xfce

Using kernel 5.11.6 I am unable to compile the ntfs3 driver (requires glibc 2.33) and after upgrading to glibc 2.33 the compilation is successful but 'ntfs3.ko'module cannot be loaded.

Code: Select all

# insmod ntfs3.ko
insmod: ERROR: could not insert module ntfs3.ko: Operation not permitted
Are you using glibc-2.33 to build Kernel 5.11.6?

Using kernel 5.10.5 everything works fine Porteus Kernel Builder (Post by Blaze #80931)

You can try it https://drive.google.com/uc?export=down ... oKDAb2Roo8

Thanks.

Hey, guys, have you tried to build the kernel without the CPU mitigations just to see how much we can improve performance? Here's how: https://linuxreviews.org/HOWTO_make_Lin ... Intel_CPUs

And here are some benchmarks: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page= ... wn-2&num=2

my reading of that link is that it's not about building the kernel without mitigations, but simply turning them off using kernel parameters (ie. what we call around here: "cheatcodes") on the boot line..

You're right! So basically (I'm not on Porteus at the moment):

1- sudo echo 'mitigations=off' >> /etc/sysconfig/grub
2- sudo grub2-mkconfig -o grub.cfg
3- copy this new file to [bootDevice]/boot/grub/grub.cfg (or [bootDevice]/boot/grub2/grub.cfg)
4- reboot


EDIT: nevermind, I'm too busy to pay attention :P So... Can we edit porteus.cfg and include 'mitigations=off' in one of the APPEND menu entries?

So basically
quite possibly ..(i havn't messed with grub for many years)
or this: https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/ker ... eter-edit/ to simply edit the boot line at bootup (e for edit> add parameter to 'linux' line > ctl+x to boot) if that tutorial is still valid :p
