How to install pf-kernel in debian

pf-kernel is yet another Linux kernel fork which provides you with a handful of awesome features not merged into mainline. It is based on neither existing Linux fork nor patchset, although some unofficial ports may be used if required patches haven’t been released officially. The name of the fork is by no means related to BSD Packet Filter. «pf» stands for «post-factum», the author’s nickname.

Each version has been tested by author before releasing using Dell Vostro 3360 config. Binary builds are not tested by myself. There’s no warranty at all.

Included patches:

[m] mainline update
[m] -ck patchset with BFS
[m] BFQ I/O scheduler
[m] TuxOnIce
[m] UKSM
[m] EnhanceIO

Included configs for:

[m] Dell Vostro 3360 laptop (lspci, lsusb)
[o] ASUS G73SW laptop (lspci, lsusb)
[o] HP 635 laptop (lspci, lsusb)
[o] Samsung NP900X3A laptop (lspci, lsusb)
[o] Dell Vostro V13 (DVV13Y15C37S) (lspci, lsusb)

[m] — accepted and merged, [w] — accepted, but still waiting for release, [t] — temporary fix, [o] — obsolete.

  1. Impressive! However, it seems like his website is down? I’m going to give it a go anyway and see what happens.

  2. Pf-kernel is not so effective. Some people demonstrated how other kernels are better than the pf-kernel official in the older pf-kernel forum and it was closed December 18, 2015.
