In this case, we are going to compile a newly released Kernel 3.12, on Debian Wheezy. The newly released Kernel 3.12 has several new features, including some new drivers for the NVIDIA Optimus, and the Radeon Kernel Graphics Driver. It also offers huge improvements to the EXT4 filesystem, and some updates to XFS and Btrfs.

The highly expected Linux Kernel 3.10 has been released by Linus Torvalds himself yesterday. Among other fixes and improvements, the new kernel has better support for Solid State Drives (SSDs). A full list of features can be found on the official announcement.

Here are the steps to compile a kernel from source in debian based systems. These steps have worked successfully on debian 6.0 (linux 2.6.32) – You will need a package by the name kernel-package, which implements the commands required for compilation, hence run
Debian 7.0 ‘wheezy’ will include Linux 3.2. This is currently in unstable and will soon enter testing.

With Linux 3.0 on its way, the Debian developers have decided to move the Debian Wheezy development from Linux 2.6 to Linux 3.0.
I haven’t bothered with custom kernels in a long time. I think the last time I ran a custom kernel on my own machine was in 2006. There was a time where I would just read kernel code and change random things just to see what would happen, I’m definitely not that brave anymore.

The Debian project has been working in removing non-free firmware from the Linux kernel shipped with Debian for the past two release cycles. At the time of the releases of Debian 4.0 “Etch”  and 5.0 “Lenny” , however, it was not yet possible to ship Linux kernels stripped of all non-free firmware bits. Back […]

Debian is a version of Linux established in 1993. It has three distinct release branches: stable, testing and unstable. Debian “Lenny” was released on November 27, 2010, and is the current stable distribution as of 2010. Updating the kernel in Debian is accomplished through the built-in “apt-get” update system.

The debate over the two original approaches “shows the division in the Linux camp,” said Slashdot blogger hairyfeet. “On one side you have the DIYers with the patch; on the other, the ‘make it easy’ option with an update that will end up rolled in the kernel. “Who is right? Well, I still say that […]

Just installing the kernel in the first article hasn’t changed anything about how your Debian VPS will boot. We’ll need to make some other changes before pv-grub will boot with the new kernel.

apt-get doesn’t clean old kernels, as it may screw up and render the system unbootable. However, leaving a lot of kernels in /boot often results in filling up the space. This is especially true of /boot is in a little partition on its own.

First we will install all prerequisites then download kernel source. Next step will be customization and as a last step we will create a Debian package with new Customized Linux kernel and install it.
As I wrote about a couple days ago, I’m now the not-so-proud owner of an Aspire One, running Debian. (I love Debian; I kind of hate the Aspire One.)

OK, let’s just get right to it. We both know why you’re here and you’re probably raring to get JACK and some client apps running in RT mode with low latencies as quickly as possible.

Yesterday, the kernel development team have released kernel version 220.127.116.11. As I was looking at the ChangeLog from kernel.org website, I have noticed that there are not much changes to this kernel, besides tons of fixed for ext4 file system.

Some of you must have heard about a new feature that got introduced since 2.6.29 Linux kernel known as Kernel Mode Setting (KMS).I will not go into the details about the benefits of KMS in this post but rather I will show you how to enable KMS on your Debian system

The entire Debian kernel team assembled for a four day meeting at the annual Linux Plumbers Conference in Portland, Oregon, to set out the key features for the forthcoming version 6.0 (codename Squeeze) of the open source Linux distribution.

Well, do you need to recompile your kernel under Debian GNU/Linux? There are two safe ways to do it. The first method, is funny called “Debian Standard”, the second obviously is the classic method of recompiling.

In this tutorial we can see how to compile and build the binary package of Linux kernel. The advantage of creating binary package is that you can install the kernel on multiple machines instead of compiling kernel in each and every machine.

I’ve finally sat down and tried to make a realtime kernel for Debian, for my 64bit machine. I followed the instructions I found in this post on the Debian forums.
Debian developer Robert Millan is offering an alternative kernel for Debian’s Lenny free Linux distro. Unlike the standard Lenny kernel, it contains no proprietary firmware.

Debian has always supported a wide range of processors, though; these architectures are different and noteworthy because instead of providing Debian on different hardware, they build the OS on a completely different kernel: FreeBSD’s.

The Debian project has announced that it is adding two new FreeBSD kernels to the unstable and experimental archive under the name of Debian GNU/kFreeBSD.

The Ubuntu kernel guys have released an “official” build of the 2.6.29 Linux Kernel which came out tonight. The .deb files work for both Ubuntu and Debian! (and outdated, stable and test releases like Ubuntu 9.04 jaunty jackalope.
