3.0 Liquorix kernel debs

Those who have created deb or tar packages to share with other MEPIS users can create a thread in this forum to do that. Also those that request someone to create a package for them, can be posted here.

3.0 Liquorix kernel debs

#1 Postby Stevo » Sun Aug 21, 2011 11:29 pm

Am running my laptop below on the new kernel for the past day on the new kernel without problems.

I'm still trying to figure out how to build repo packages for it without it dying during dh_genchanges.

It autobuilt new Virtual Box drivers using dkms upon the image and header installs, and also requires a couple of newer packages included.

(64-bit so far): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1540715/3.0-5_L ... kernel.zip

32-bit (no PAE is possible): https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B3t2qH ... h&hl=en_US

I installed liquorix 2.6.39.5 (64 bit) a while back but I haven't seen any updates lately. Is that normal or should I look at the repos prefs or something?

Edit: I downloaded from dropbox the 3.0 kernel. If I want to install from that what's the procedure?

I can't seem to get the repo changes files to build cleanly on both 32 and 64-bit, but the debs are fine. You'd install on M11 by clicking on the deb files to install with gdebi for your architcture:

module-init-tools
initramfs-tools
linux-image
linux-headers

and then boot from the "newest kernel" line in the boot menu.

If you have any proprietary drivers such as ATI or Nvidia, you'll have to rebuild them using smxi or manually. Virtual Box will autobuild drivers using dkms.

So, what is so special about the liquorix kernel? IOW, what would lead a user to install it instead of the vanilla flavor?

On the liquorix homepage, I see something about better multimedia experience. Is that the primary attraction?

Well, for the 2.6.39 one, it was the only one I could figure out how to build from the source packages so that our repository could accept it.

It also has the BFS scheduler and lower latency, so is good for audio work, and has newer and more drivers for brand-new hardware. I have a couple wifi devices that work with the new kernel, but not out of the box with the 2.6.36 MEPIS version.

I thought I read somewhere that the 3.xx kernel was a little faster, I may be wrong though. I am running Stevo's 64bit 3.0 Liquorix kernel on a fresh clean install of M11, and everything is running like a top. Typical Stevo polish, thanks buddy. ;)

I did find out that I can't build the Ubuntu Thunderbird 6.0 on the 3.0 kernel, since it checks the system, looks for a file called Linux3.0.mk (it thinks the OS is Linux 3.0) can't find it, and quits. Mozilla will add the new file in the next iteration, I guess, but I'm building it on the 2.6.39 kernel, since there is a Linux2.6.mk file. (I'm too lazy to add put the new file in /debian and then copy it into the source tree at build time).

Just a heads up--it appears I can build the Ubuntu Thunderbird and Firefox 6.0 on M11, M8.5, and M8. We already have Iceweasel 6.0 on M11, so just have a successful FF on 32-bit M8.5 so far, and finishing up Tbird 6.0 for M11, then to proceed down the list. These big fat Mozilla programs take a while to build, especially in virtual machines, and the Ubuntu versions only compile on one core.

Hot (sea) monkey love?

Debian seems to be stuck on 2.0.14 (iceape). I'll look around for a PPA with a more recent version.
