[WIP] linux: Add options for deblobbed kernels #36831

wants to merge 1 commit into from

nixy commented Mar 11, 2018

Motivation for this change

I prefer to run a deblobbed kernel for various reasons and I know I'm not the only one. This is fairly easy to do with linuxPackages_custom by just dropping in a custom tarball. But since this is so simple I figured it would be nice to add support so others interested in running a deblobbed kernel don't have to mess around with custom linux packages.

This is pretty much a rough draft as I am almost certain there is a better way to accomplish this. Any feedback or recommendations are welcome.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option build-use-sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • [x NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nox --run "nox-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Fits

I think this was superseded by #45411. @nixy feel free to let me know if you disagree and we can reopen.
