Debian updating kernel
A patch modifies the source code and typically only works for a specific version of the source code.If you have a patch written for the 3.16 kernel, it will likely fail if you try and apply it to the 4.1 version of the source. The above rt patch worked fine since it was written specifically for this kernel source.Keyboard LEDs are functional, so it does not seem to be a kernel panic.Might be some configuration problem on my system (debian testing/sid).This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.See Unfortunately, the Liquorix kernel headers are built against version 5 of GCC and Bunsen Labs uses version 4 so any required kernel modules (such as Broadcom drivers) could not be built if that kernel version is used.
There are 2 versions of the 4.1 kernel, with and without the realtime (rt) patch.
The kernel source package comes with a bunch of configurations for different processor architectures in the directory /usr/src/linux-config-4.1/.
Since I am applying the rt patch to the amd64 kernel, I'll use the configuration supplied: You can navigate the menus and make changes following the instructions on the top of the screen.
However, it is sometimes necessary to install a newer kernel to provide support for hardware that isn't supported by version 3.16.
Reasons to consider customizing the kernel include the removal of unnecessary modules, patching the kernel source for some added functionality, or to tinker and learn about the process of creating Debian kernel packages.
However, with Bunsen Labs, I already have an entry named "jessie-backports" in my sources lists So, what is the appropriate way to add an additional source that connects me to the upstream debian jessie-backports repository so I can download version 4.4 of the linux kernel?
