Kernel 4.13.9 compiled in Pyro64

October 23, 2017 — BarryK

In Quirky Pyro64 to be more precise.

The build scripts and patches are uploaded here:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/easyos/source/kernel/4.13.9/

I hit a very strange bug. When the build script ran "make menuconfig", the terminal crashed. No error messages, it just aborted. I recompiled ncurses, the terminal still crashed.

Very odd. The urxvt terminal emulator is working fine, using it everyday in Pyro64. I googled of course, found the same crash reported a few times, but no definite fix.

So, changed the script to run "make gconfig", the GTK config, and that worked fine.
