Expert Views on Linux Kernel Size
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 3, 2015
I wish to look at the Linux kernel. I am interested in the size of the kernel.
The bulk of the kernel consists of hardware drivers but these are modules and are optionally loaded depending on the config.
What are peoples' view on the remainder of the kernel in terms of the size of it?
Is it possible to trim anything further?
Another point is, does size correspond to efficiency or any performance benefit?

Linux Kernel vs GNU Project !
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 10, 2006
most of us don't give much credit to Richard stallman, the head of the GNU project.
without him there was no "GNU/Linux" today.
but most of us still calling Linux "Linux" and not "GNU/Linux"
yeah without Linus we still be empty handed, but his work was the final part.
BTW stallman is working for years on his new Kernel HURD, that will work with his GNU project.
so my question is that :
what IYHO was harder to make the Linux Kernel or the GNU project or maybe HURD (that still on the making) ?

We need a stripped Linux version that have the following requirements:
1. Quick and silent boot (no console output)
2. Logo while booting
3. Support touch screen
4. Video performance at least as good as Windows XP on same hardware
5. No applications installed
6. Pre configured WLAN (SSID/ip address)
7. Latest Java Runtime installed
8. Latest version of Xuggler installed (http://www.xuggle.com/xuggler/)
9. automatically login (no login screen)
10. On login it shall load and start a Java swing application (graphical)
11. If keyboard is connected, it shall require password to be able to use it. Alternatively keyboard shall be blocked and only have remote desktop (require root login)
Are someone interested in making an install image for us?
We are willing to pay reasonable price for the job

How to Find and Install the Latest Stable Linux Kernel
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 31, 2011
Here's an easy how-to guide on how to find the latest mainline, stable, or longterm Linux kernel and how to upgrade to it.
You can open System Monitor and go to the first tab to see what kernel you currently have.
First, check out http://www.kernel.org/ to see the latest kernel that you want.
Then, go to http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ and scroll down to the one you found on the other site.
Open up the link, then download (the order is important here):
linux-headers-...i386.deb (or linux-headers-...amd64.deb if you're using 64 bit)
linux-image-...i386.deb (or linux-image-...amd64.deb for 64 bit)
Then just run these through Ubuntu Software Center (double click them, or right-click and select Ubuntu Software Center). Make sure you install them in this order; if you don't, Ubuntu Software Center won't let you install them.
The Ubuntu kernel team seems to have started splitting the kernel into four packages no
