Install Debian Buster with Raspberry Pi Desktop using separate/home, /var and /tmp partitions failed

I installed the Debian Buster with Raspberry Pi Desktop (version: Feb-2020, release date 2020-02-12) in VMware Fusion. When I partition the disk and choose "All files in one partition (recommended for new users)", the installation goes smoothly without any problems. However, if I partition the disk ...

Re: Should include the same version of gcc as the linux kern

Nonsense ! The correct version is available natively in the jessie repo so only a matter of back porting it into the current Raspbian. Not really. Linaro 2014.03 is branched from prerelease GCC 4.8.3, but it is not the same compiler as upstream. In fact, it is significantly different, especially in...

Re: Should include the same version of gcc as the linux kern

His steps work in my RPi 2 and I can installed gcc-4.8.3 to my RPi 2 (I got RPi 1 B+ but haven't try his steps yet). Unfortunately I was unable to build a workable rtl8188eu for my Mercury 150Mbps wifi dongle using gcc-4.8.3. Luckily someone had kindly built it and provided a binary version for me a...

Re: Should include the same version of gcc as the linux kern

GCC is a critical component. No one can tell that v4.8 is enough stable and bug-free to enter stable stage. Nobody wants to guarantee the non-tested software. That's why GCC 4.8 is not included. And installing GCC 4.8 is quite easy, so no need of. I am sure no one (I mean anyone, everyone) can guar...

Re: Should include the same version of gcc as the linux kern

And why it's done that way? Answer is simple: Debian version used to create Raspbian is Wheezy, which is currently stable. Which means that there won't be non-security updates. So the GCC version released is 4.6. However, newer compilers provide better binary files (faster, smaller). That's the rea...

Should include the same version of gcc as the linux kernel

I found that the latest Raspbian Debian Wheezy (updated on 16-Feb-2015) linux kernel was built with gcc-4.8.3 [email protected] / $ cat /proc/version Linux version 3.18.7-v7+ ([email protected]) (gcc version 4.8.3 20140303 (prerelease) (crosstool-NG linaro-1.13.1+bzr2650 - Linaro GCC 2014.03) ) #755 S...

I got the kernel compiled now (build on the Pi 2 with the power of 4 processor kernels ;) ).

Can you provide the steps to compile the kernel and generate kernel.img and kernel7.img ? Maybe a simple tutorial ?

What's the difference between kernel.img and kernel7.img ?

I have a PS/2 keyboard and PS/2 mouse and use a 2-in-1 PS/2 to USB converter to connect to Raspberry Pi but I found that Raspbian “wheezy” Linux cannot detect the keyboard (and probably also mouse).
