Last update wouldn't build new kernel

(Valerie) #1

I don’t have the exact text; but it complained about the script being incorrect and aborted the build.

Linux parrot 4.19.0-parrot1-13t-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.13-1parrot1.13t (2019-01-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux

There is a security issue with kernel 4.19 so we pushed 5.0. Issue being that 5.0 isn’t very well supported yet, hence yours didn’t build.

Personally i had graphics issues, so i just left my kernel on 4.19. You might have to do the same if you don’t want to tinker with the kernel yourself.

I’ve been thinking, we should be at 5 by now.

I’ve done a lot under the hood. Just what would it take to get 4.19 to build 5.0?

Alternatively, I’ve been thinking about downloading 4.6 from the site and installing it on the 2GB HDD I have mounted in my DVD drive (Dell E6330 Laptop). What’s you felling on this?

Wouldnt know what needed changing without seeing the log/output. You might have to import some modules, maybe even build a kernel yourself.

On your second question, im not sure parrot would even fit on a 2GB drive.

Oh my, that’s not what I meant to say. It’s a 2TB HDD,

Dont see why not. I install parrot on every device i get the chance.
