Build my own kernel
Recently I updated my Amiga3000/18MB-RAM Debian-2.0 to 3.0. Usually I build
my own kernel on small systems but a first try took 11 hours and the result
My installed applications are kernel-package+debs and gcc-2.95 - browsing
the lists I found the suggestion to use gcc272 for compiling m68k-kernels -
is this still recommended?
I have three requirements:
1. lean nonmodular/monolitic kernel
2. support for my ariadne1
3. use true vga-textmode on my cl5424-board
Which kernel-source is required?
Is there any performance-penalty to be expected between 2.0, 2.2 and 2.4?
I prefer vanilla ftp.kernel.org or at least as close as possible :-)
Some while ago I managed to get vga-textmode running on an Amiga4000 with
CV64-3D - it was impressivly fast, no framebuffer ever can get close to
that. So I would like it also on my Amiga3000. To bad I never wrote down
how I achieved that. I found some titbits while going through the
m68k-kernel-framebuffer-options, but I still do not know how to configure
it on the kernel-commandline by video=. Any comments will be appreciated.
