Kernel 3.9 on pi?

Sat May 04, 2013 6:49 pm

Has anyone started putting kernel 3.9.x on the pi? Since the F2FS is past it's teething in 3.9 and Phoronix is saying the Flash Friendly File System (F2FS) beats out ext4 on flash media (SDHC and USB thumb drives), I'm hoping folks are porting over to it.

Either XFS beats ext4 with near kernel 3.3 and newe by +40% speed
xfs beets near all FS at current with its stabilty.

Hey guys.
I have already seen the kernel branch at Github, so I cloned and compiled it. (http://elinux.org/RPi_Kernel_Compilation) After installing and rebooting I executed uname -a to find out my new kernel version. I expected 3.9 but the output was: Linux raspberrypi 3.8.12+ #1 PREEMPT Thu May 9 22:22:20 CEST 2013 armv6l GNU/Linux
So there's no kernel 3.9 yet for Raspberry Pi. :(

git branch in the root path of the repository tells me * rpi-3.9.y.

well the kernel version in the makefile isn't 3.8, you sure you copied the right file to the pi?

Hm, it seems it has something to do with my git, because my Makefile is version 3.8. I'll try cloning it again.

use this simpel script made by me

Code: Select all

 
#!/bin/sh
# 
# Script License LGPL
#
KV=3.9
KSUB=1
KVER=$KV.$KSUB
BRANCH=rpi-$KV.y
BRANCH_VER=rpi-$KV.$KSUB.y

# Simple GIT fetch latest RPI "next" Kernel source tar ball script ..

cd /usr/src
if [ ! -d SOURCES ]; then
  mkdir SOURCES
fi
if [ ! -d GIT ]; then
        mkdir GIT
fi
cd GIT
        if [ -d .git ]; then
                rm -rf .git
                rm .gitignore .mailmap
        fi

D=06-05-2013

cd /usr/src/GIT
if [ -d  $BRANCH_VER ]; then
        rm -rf  $BRANCH_VER
        sleep 1
        mkdir  $BRANCH_VER
else
        mkdir  $BRANCH_VER
fi
#
cd /usr/src/GIT/$BRANCH_VER
git init
git fetch git://github.com/raspberrypi/linux.git $BRANCH:refs/remotes/origin/$BRANCH
git checkout $BRANCH


#cd /usr/src/GIT
#tar cpfj /usr/src/SOURCES/rpi-$KVER.y.tar.bz2  rpi-$KVER.y

Can you explain a little more on how to use this script?
