Quick Guide to Get Ready for LTSI 3.10

The 3.11 kernel release is on Sept. 2. So I think it is a good time to update the development schedule of LTSI 3.10 and provide a brief guideline to participate in the LTSI 3.10 development process.   Development Schedule:   LTSI 3.10 Merge Window Opens:   LTSI merge window should open on the date that the 3.12 MAINLINE KERNEL is RELEASED, WHICH IS THE DATE 3.10 WILL BECOME FORMALLY LTS.

binary blobs to C structures

Sometimes you don’t have access to vim’s wonderful xxd tool, and you need to use it to generate some .c code based on a binary file. This happened to me recently when packaging up the EFI signing tools for Gentoo. Adding a build requirement of vim for a single autogenerated file was not an option for some users, so I created a perl version of the xxd -i command line tool.

Brandon Philips: How the CoreOS Linux Distro Uses Cgroups

CoreOS is a new Linux distribution for servers aimed at giving all data centers the same automation capabilities and efficiencies as those seen in the massive server farms run by Google or Facebook. Their technology, combined with the upstart package manager Docker, is popularizing the idea that the Linux operating system itself can serve as a hypervisor. Lending credibility to the approach is Linux kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman, a CoreOS advisor.

booting a self-signed Linux kernel

Now that The Linux Foundation is a member of the UEFI.org group, I’ve been working on the procedures for how to boot a self-signed Linux kernel on a platform so that you do not have to rely on any external signing authority.

After digging through the documentation out there, it turns out to be relatively simple in the end, so here’s a recipe for how I did this, and how you can duplicate it yourself on your own machine.
