Kernel and modules recompile script (MIT)
« on: October 22, 2016, 05:08:35 AM »
Hi,

I've built a script (Makefile) which can be used to recompile a TinyCore Linux kernel, as well as the modules extensions (ex: ipv6-3.16.6-tinycore64.tcz).

https://github.com/Jidoteki/tinycore-kernel

It helped rebuild the 6.x kernel to support more CPUs. I also used it to successfully update the 6.x kernel to v3.16.38 (latest 3.16.x).

It can definitely be improved, so please feel free to fork it on GitHub, make pull-requests and suggest improvements where you see fit.

Thanks!

FYI, the patches are cosmetic/boot speed only, except the AGP patch that allows that particular chipset to work.

Our script to create the module extensions can be found in our github (sorter).
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
