Which kernel version is supported?

Hi All,

I have installed (using netinstall method) the latest Ubuntu image created by Robert C. Nelson.
(Thanks for his continuous work and support.)

The installed image containes kernel version 3.6.0-x1.
I would like to recompile a kernel to support SGX and DS drivers.
I downloaded from Robert’s git repo the “linux” and the “stable-kernel” sources and scripts to use his build-kernel.sh.
But his script is creating a kernel version 3.2.0, since this is the stable one I guess.

Is there a way to use the patches and configuration which are used in the stable version with a more recent 3.6.x version of the kernel?
If the 3.6.0-x1 is not stable enough then why this one is distributed with the installation?

Thanks for your kind help in advance.

Best regards,
Laszlo

(you've already cloned stable-kernel, you just need to checkout the
correct branch)

sources and scripts to use his build-kernel.sh.
But his script is creating a kernel version 3.2.0, since this is the stable
one I guess.

Your on the master branch of "stable-kernel" which is still on v3.2
for one board that's not ready for v3.6.x..

Is there a way to use the patches and configuration which are used in the
stable version with a more recent 3.6.x version of the kernel?

git checkout origin/v3.6.x -b v3.6.x-tmp

If the 3.6.0-x1 is not stable enough then why this one is distributed with
the installation?

Well it's distributed, by the default installation for all boards
(except the original panda) because it's more then just "stable
enough". :wink:

Regards,

Hi Robert,

Thanks for your quick and kind reply.
Also thanks very much for your help and the explanation.
I’m afraid next time I should read your description more carefully. :slight_smile:

Thanks for your kind support again.

Best regards,
Laszlo
