Install Con Kolivas kernel

Warning. Perform the following at your own risk. Backup all data before atempting.
Okay. So I really like the CK kernel. In paticular, the BFS (Brain F&@k scheduler). However, Ubuntu does not have a good PPA for the experimental kernel. So the best way to install it is through a script I found on Sourceforge.
The steps to compile a kernel with these modifications are:

Download the vanilla kernel
Download and apply the: -ubuntu, -bfq, -ck patchsets
Configure the kernel
Compile
Install
Code: Select all
wget --no-check-certificate \https://raw.github.com/chilicuil/learn/master/sh/kernel-ck-ubuntu

This downloads the kernel.
Code: Select all
time bash kernel-ck-ubuntu

This applies the patches:

Finally install the kernel:
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i ./linux-*.deb


Please note that this process takes time. You have to compile the kernel, and also add the patches. The process is animated though... It just takes time. If you use the script as of this writing you also get an updated kernel...3.8.2-ck1 Hope you enjoyed my tutorial. ;smile

Please replace
Code: Select all
 echo "[+] downloading an optimized config file from http://liquorix.net ...    "
#_exec wget "http://liquorix.net/sources/$kernel/config.$arqt"
#TODO 04-03-2013 21:19 >> check when liquorix update config for 3.8, using 3.7 config in the meantime
_exec wget "http://liquorix.net/sources/3.7/config.$arqt"
_exec cp config.$arqt .config
with
Code: Select all
 echo "[+] downloading an optimized config file from http://liquorix.net ...    "
#_exec wget "http://liquorix.net/sources/$kernel/config.$arqt"
#TODO 04-03-2013 21:19 >> check when liquorix update config for 3.8, using 3.7 config in the meantime
_exec wget "http://liquorix.net/sources/$kernel/config.$arqt"
_exec cp config.$arqt .config



on the liquorix site, 3.8 configs have replaced 3.7, causing the 404 not found.


OR download from my git repo.
Code: Select all
 git clone git//github.com/ryanvade/Second-Repo.git
