Debian is awesome. Really. I love Debian – but sometimes the well-aged kernel is a tad too old for me. Currently it’s about fstrim and as I’m already doing my own Gentoo-Kernel for Debian, I had to do it properly and build an upstream ‘vanilla’ kernel too. What I dislike about my current setup is having to install […]
Debian is a solid Linux distribution with nearly nothing to complain about besides its well aged software. And in my case this ‘nearly nothing’ was more about the nearly than the nothing as due to the old kernel, fstrim didn’t do its job. So I decided to build a new kernel. But as I am running Gentoo on […]
You know, thanks to Intel’s little ‘design flaw’ in its CPUs and all of that buzz going on, we’re forced to patch around a little. This time, the linux kernel bails out *– * AR /usr/src/linux-4.14.12/tools/objtool/libsubcmd.a * CC /usr/src/linux-4.14.12/tools/objtool/libstring.o * CC /usr/src/linux-4.14.12/tools/objtool/str_error_r.o * LD /usr/src/linux-4.14.12/tools/objtool/objtool-in.o *make: execvp: ./sync-check.sh: Permission denied *make: *** [Makefile:49: /usr/src/linux-4.14.12/tools/objtool/objtool] Error 127 *make: *** […]
The good old Changelog of the Linux-Kernel is quite a monster to read and I cannot imagine that you’d like to read it commit by commit for just maintaining your kernel builds in case of getting a rough idea what happened during the last release. So why not making things a little more short and sweet instead? Let’s […]
Today I was trying to free some space on my server and came across my kernel sources which were a space hog here – especially if they’re already compiled: denkbrett src # du -sh linux-184.108.40.206 718M linux-220.127.116.11 denkbrett src # cd linux-18.104.22.168 denkbrett linux-22.214.171.124 # make distclean denkbrett src # du -sh 437M . As you see, a […]
Do you still remember my Lenovo W500 notebook? I was writing about the setup and the issue with the switchable graphic cards. You remember: It got two cards – one for the hard work and one for saving power. Switching only worked via BIOS or using Windows.
