Woof: kernel selection

August 23, 2011 — BarryK
Selection of which kernel to use in a build needs to be done early-on, as some packages are kernel-version-dependent, so selection of the right packages to use in a build requires that the kernel is already selected.

The current uploaded Woof now has kernel-selection in the first tab of the woof_gui GUI.

However, if not using the GUI and doing the build by running the scripts directly, the kernel selection is in 3builddistro. I have now moved this to 1download.

I reorganized 1download so that online kernel PETs are downloaded near the beginning of the script, then the kernel is chosen. After that, the correct packages can be chosen and downloaded.
