What is fli4lkernel?

Note: This kernel fixes some problems with FlI4L 2.0.0 and 2.0.1, the release of FlI4L 2.0.2 has obsoleted it.

fli4lkernel is an alternative kernel for Fli4L version 2.x. It has been compiled with the orignal sources and the settings that were used for the FlI4L kernel. The only change is that it uses /dev/tty1 instead of /dev/console for the local console as the original Linux kernel does.

To use it, copy it to the img subdirectory.

When you use this kernel instead of the standard kernel this will have the following results:

  • Serial terminas won't work any more.
  • Ctrl-C will work again on the local console.
  • APT_AE will not annoy you with error messages on the local console.
  • The login prompt on the local console will be disabled.
  • The /etc/issue file will no longer be displayed.
