Using "foreign" kernels
This directory contains a number of scripts to re-package other
distributions kernels into a LinuxKit kernel package. The scripts
download the relevant
debs and create a local docker image
which can be used in LinuxKit. You can optionally push the package to
hub, if you like.
All scripts take slightly different command line arguments (which could be improved) as each distribution uses different naming conventions and repository layouts.
To build a package using the
4.14.11 from the mainline ppa
build the package:
./mainline.sh foobar/kernel-mainline v4.14.11 041411 201801022143
v4.14.11 is the sub-directory of the ppa
seems to be another version used in the name of the
201801022143 is the date. You can find the names by browsing the
The result is a local image
can be used in a YAML file like a normal LinuxKit kernel image.
