Not many people are willing to compile a linux kernel from source but would definitely install a prepackaged one if they were given the opportunity.
So… I have some good news for anyone interested. As you may know I keep posting any news about stable releases of Linux Kernel and updates about Zen Kernel. Well today, I created a github repository to upload prebuilt packages of the latest BFS optimized Linux kernel so that anyone can download and install these packages.
System Requirements :
- OS: Ubuntu
- CPU: Intel or AMD
- Arch: 32bit and 64bit
This repo will always have the latest stable release packages of BFS optimized Linux Kernel so stay tuned…
To use them just install the 3 packages related to your Operating Systems architecture:
Ubuntu 32bit: linux-headers-*all.deb , linux-headers-*i386.deb, linux-image-*i386.deb
Ubuntu 64bit: linux-headers-*all.deb , linux-headers-*amd64.deb, linux-image-*amd64.deb
You can keep up with the latest news about brand new package releases by reading :
Update (13-Mar-2012): Now compatible with Intel and AMD cpu’s on Ubuntu 64bit. Stay tuned for 32bit packages
Update (15-Mar-2012): Because now I don’t use Zen Kernel but I build my own BFS/BFQ patched Ubuntu kernels, I removed the Zen Deb repo and created a new one “Optimus Linux Kernel”
Update (15-Mar-2012): Added 32bit packages to the downloaded ziped archive
