Automating building kernel for Zenbooks

I wrote some simple script to automate building kernels for Zenbook laptops.

It downloads and apply Bluetooth patch, RC6 patch, Sentelic drivers, fixes DSDT table, and helps doing compilation of all of that.

Hope it’s going to be helpful for someone.

Here it goes. Should work on most Debian based distros, but as usual. There is NO warranty ;)

    What foo said. Then, let us in the kernel team know which patches to cherry-pick for wheezy.

    This would be way more helpful than a script to ‘build your own’.

      chef for building kernel? I know it but for configuration automation and maintaining many servers at once.

      Seems like overkill for building kernel.

    Do you have any issues with turning on and off wireless with keyboard, my current state is keyboard light off = bluetooth off wireless on, keyboard light on = bluetooth on , wireless off and I can change it, not sure if this is due to not having the DSDT or some bios setting any thoughts?

        Wait…so you use Wifi but not bluetooth or neither? I don’t use bluetooth just Wifi just curious if you notice the same behavior with the FN+F2 key. I see your auto script has the bluetooth patch in it so I assumed you did, I didn’t include it in my build so thought you might have some insight.

          I’ve included BT in this script to make it more universal. I personally don’t use it. I’m using Wifi. In fact I’m using it all the time, cause I don’t have wire based infrastructure in my home.

          To be honest I haven’t used ALT+F2 key combination ever ;)

            Alright, I have essentially the same setup as you, but yea if you ever decide to try let me know :). In the mean time going to see if there is a bios setting that got switched or the dsdt will fix it.

        Sorry to keep bugging you, i’m not using the fixed dsdt and haven’t seen any problems do you know a valid reason to use it?

          Well it’s there cause few weeks ago it was common to think that this fixes sudden shutdowns problem.
          Now it’s probably not needed anymore.
