[SOLVED] Successful Self-compile and remix to Kernel Help

Postby scdas141 » 2017-03-18 19:31

Hi everyone..

Long-time Windows 7/10 user, I have been using SparkyLinux - http://SparkyLinux.org based on Debian Testing / "sid" for quite some time now.. a very pleasant experience I might add.. I have the 4.9.13 kernel-LXDE with Openbox Desktop..

Just for the fun of it, decided to download Kernel 4.10.3 [Stable] from Kernel.org and remix it to my existing kernel, which I found on this excellent article on how to self-compile linux kernels:

http://www.linux.org/threads/the-linux-kernel-compiling-and-installing.5208/

using:

Code: Select all
zcat /proc/config.gz > .config &&  make && make modules && make install && make modules_install


After that, I created the initrd images and grub-menu by:

Code: Select all
sudo update-initramfs -u;sudo update-grub;


I have been able to logon into my HomeBrew Kernel which looks very nice but the only thing is that local-disk i/o has gone down to 3-4 MB/s which is very low..

I guess a little help from you guyz could sort this out for me..

:D :D

PS. Guys taking wild guesses trying to help out, please excuse..

EDIT:
[SOLVED] -- adding noatime to root ext4 partition in /etc/fstab probably did the trick...

The stock Debian kernel does not set CONFIG_IKCONFIG_PROC but instead stores the configuration in /boot

Please either re-post your question over at https://sparkylinux.org/forum/ or reproduce this issue with a Debian kernel.

Hi Stick dude.. Thks for the heads up..

Also, I strongly suspect that Sparky is almost the exact debian-clone albeit with a few cosmetic setting-changes.. sources.list, etc..

I found this config-4.10.3 in /boot:

Any other info that u might need. most welcome..

I think there's a bit more to Sparky than that---a Pale Moon compiled from source and homegrown tools to work around the broken Debian Flash installers are just a couple things I remember from skimming through their repos.

You could try rebuilding the upstream Debian 4.10 kernel packages, but that takes a lot longer when it goes about converting and building the documentation and debug packages than just your straight kernel compile.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.0.6, Pale Moon 27.4.0, Liquorix kernel 4.11-9, mpv 0.25.0, Kodi 17.3, Ksnip 1.3.1, Mesa 13.0.6
