Kernel 4.8.7 for Quirky x86_64

November 13, 2016 — BarryK
Well underway working on a new Quirky for x86_64 PCs.

A Linux kernel with btrfs builtin is required, plus wanted some extra firewall modules. So have compiled the 4.8.7 kernel. Note also, no aufs patch as am migrating to using overlay f.s.

Here are the new PETs (139.9MB, 31.2MB):

Kernel source, patches and build scripts are here, with our usual username/password:


Bumped to 4.8.8.

Btrfs is still built-in, also now device-mapper is built-in. Device-mapper patch for kernel boot parameters. Does NOT have zfs patch.
