Building an atlas Kernel

This assumes that a stable linux kernel source tree already exists on a machine (bob, /srv/kernel/linux-stable), cloned via

git clone git://

our Atlas kernel should live in the atlas-3.2 branch (assuming kernel 3.2 is wanted)

git checkout -b atlas-3.2

For different kernel versions there are multiple directories like /srv/kernel/linux-stable-3.XX.

ensure it is up to date

now rebase against against latest version tag, e.g. v3.2.24
git rebase v3.2.24

which should re-apply all local patched

Special patches

See attached list

With the 2013 network change and kernels from 3.10 onwards it seems we don't need the NIC patch anymore.

build kernel

make -j 8 deb-pkg 
when this is done, the new kernel packages are one level up.
