kernel

GitHub Workflow Status) GitHub release License

Kernel builder and configs for my servers. Building uses roller inside a Docker container.

Feel free to borrow them if you'd like. I use them primarily on my Linodes (www.linode.com) for Archlinux servers.

To release a new kernel

Generate the new config

Run make manual and ./dev/config-gen.py configs/OLD_VERSION to generate a new config for the latest mainline kernel. You can optionally generate the config for a different kernel version by using the -k option.

Test the new config locally

To test the build, you can run make manual and then ./dev/build.rb configs/NEW_CONFIG

Push to GitHub

Commit the new config and push to GitHub, which will kick off a build in Circle and expose the resulting vmlinuz file.

Tag the release

Tag the release with the version/revision and push the tag, which will build the kernel in Circle and then create a GitHub release asset from it.

Debugging

To start a shell inside the Docker build environment for manual actions, use make manual.
