why?  8) I did not see any post of working on new kernel releases on this forum :o
You pointed out to the 14.x release, also that is not mentioned anywhere  :o
I think this is the first succesful running of tinycore64 kernel 6.1.5 to my knowledge.

I maintain/administer tinycore machines, all are running on intel esxi hosts.
In the process i always make the kernel/modules/rootfs as small as possible for my specific setup.
(hate docker, tinycore does a better job after all)
Was happy so see my first try on 6.1.5 compiling and running #1 version  ;D

Managed to get 6.1.6 up and running.

I just published my (private) isobuilder on github.
Also included the used .config files for different kernels.

What it does is;
  • getting the current TinyCore64 iso
  • getting the new linux kernel sources (kernel.org)
  • extracts iso
  • compiles kernel
  • compiles modules
  • installs new kernel and modules
  • creates new iso

This is only for the people who know what thet are doing ...  8)
The used .config files are made minimal for my use, they contain a few modules, mostly externel kernel and for runnng in vmware/esxi
Best is to do the r option ( make menuconfig) and add all the stuff you need.

There are NO patches applied to the sources.

Thank you for getting involving to build our great Linux dist.
And also share your experiences with that and also share it via github.
