Project Description

Optimizing Pidora's Kernel Configuration Files for the Raspberry Pi

Project Details

The build process for the kernel uses a configuration file to control which kernel capabilities are built into the kernel itself, which are built as loadable modules, and which are not built. This project involves reviewing the Pidora kernel configuration to optimize it for the widest possible range of use-cases while ensuring a fairly small kernel image size.
