Linux kernel 3.5.4 does not seem to have Android-enabling features implemented tsukishiro yamazaki 9/26/12 9:54 PM
Hello everyone,

Based on my googling, I found out that Android kernel source has been remerged with mainline Linux kernel starting from 3.3
So I downloaded Linux kernel 3.5.4 and generated a .config file.
When I looked at it though, most, if not all, of the config needed for Android to function does not seem to be implemented

Can someone tell me how to patch 3.5.4 kernel source to enable Android?
Thanks and best regards,
- tsukishiro

P.S. the attached text file lists the config that should be enabled (or disabled) to allow Android to function.

You shouldn't need to patch anything. I don't know how it works on windows but in linux you open the terminal, go to the directory where linux sources are and then you type "make menuconfig" (without the "") and it should open a bios-like program where you can enable android features before the ./configure && make dance. Cheers.

I would love an android build with fq_codel enabled? on something?

It doesn't work well yet on wifi (as for why,
see last week's preso on it from linuxcon/ELC at:

http://www.teklibre.com/~d/bloat/Not_every_packet_is_sacred-Battling_Bufferbloat_on_wifi.pdf
)

But I intend to make a focus of the bufferbloat project next year to
fix wifi on android, if a reasonable chipset for the debloating work
can be found. And funding.
