Linux kernel 3.2.27

August 20, 2012 — BarryK
I have compiled the Linux kernel 3.2.27 in Precise Puppy, to be used in the next release (beta3).

PETs (for Woof usage only) (23.2MB, 834KB):

The sources, including a kernel SFS file, are here:

Heh. I did the same using your DOTconfig 3.2.18-pae as base. I added those missing dvb tuner drivers though. About 3 drivers were unticked and there was request for one of them. The kernel is now in Precise 5.3, created by oldyeller. I suppose the kernel is otherwise basically the same.

"I left it mostly the same as DOTconfig-3.2.18, except that I enabled "POSIX access control lists" support for ext2, ext3 and ext4 -- I am interested in experimenting with this. There was one driver that I enabled, but can't recall what.

"There will be another Wary/Racy soon, probably. I have moved onto building Precise Puppy for now, due to the work I have done on package categories, which, to fully utilise needs to have the Puppy-format pkg db entries generated in Woof. Wary/Racy is PET-based, that is, built entirely from PET packages, for which we already have the Puppy-format db entries.

"Thanks BarryK. Nice to see all of these advance in the approximate same timeframe. Thanks Pemasu's kernel ticks as well as yours should produce a great user experience. Thanks for all you do.

"I have no control over what people post in the Forum. I also noted the word "official" being used somewhere inappropriate in the Forum, don't recall exactly. There is no official Precise 5.3.
