    Where can I get a kernel version like this?


    Hello, all
    I will modify the formal linux kernel to fit our requests. The most important thing is where can I get a proper kernel version. Below is my demand:
    1. just has x86_64 architecture (i386 is ok too);
    2. don't support X11/KDE/Gnome......
    3. what I need exactly is a minimal kernel version that only support the basic process management / memory control/file system/TCP IP

    Hi,

    I think you're a little confused about what the kernel actually is.

    If you have time, have a read through

    Kernel (computer science - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Linux kernel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You can always find any version available at

    The Linux Kernel Archives

    I am a student major in operating system. Now, there is a project that I must design and realise an OS to fit our request. However, build a new OS is impossible and needless. So, I hope to modify the Linux kernel to do my research. The modifiability is so thorough that I don't want other irrelevant code to disturb me.
    Considered our x86 platform and no need for graphic, I post the request above.

    Well good luck with that.

    But if that is the case, then you should realize that....

    Since you will be compiling the kernel, you get control over requirements 1 & 3, don't you?

    And since it's the applications running on top of the kernel which support X, KDE, Gnome, etc. - you can just not install those, right?

    Did you have a look through the links I posted at all ?


    Again, good luck with your project, I'm just a casual user not an expert so there may be someone here who can direct you to an alternative or exactly what you want, hopefully they see your post.
