Upgrade to Linux 3.14-2
All Tails builds are broken currently since Linux API was bumped in sid.
#5 Updated by cypherpunks over 5 years ago
I've built a Tails image (re: #7661) and I'm now testing from inside Tails running this kernel update:
$ uname -a Linux amnesia 3.14-2-486 #1 Debian 3.14.13-2 (2014-07-24) i686 GNU/Linux
I ran the following command to collect information on this kernel/system (and I've attached it):
sudo /usr/local/sbin/tails-debugging-info > ~/Desktop/tails-debugging-info.txt cat: /etc/X11/xorg.conf: No such file or directory cat: /var/log/gdm3/tails-greeter.errors: No such file or directory cat: /var/lib/gdm3/tails.persistence: No such file or directory
#6 Updated by dawuud over 5 years ago
I tried a series of patches to Tails to build in vagrant on my Wheezy system.
here's an early patch that didn't quite work:
later i got the build to work with this patch against the devel branch:
My new Tails iso image has the linux-image-3.14-2-amd64 kernel.
I dd'ed it to a USB disk and tested it out; everything worked as expected.
#7 Updated by ioerror over 5 years ago
I've tested this kernel on a Coreboot/SeaBIOS enabled X60 and it works well. All the usual devices (wifi, ethernet, screen, disk, etc.) seem to work as expected.
I've also tested the kernel (and my Tails build from
devel) on a 2013 13" Retina Macbook Pro. It worked but the network didn't function. I attached an atheros wifi usb device and it was able to use the internet as expected. The thunderbolt usb ethernet device that comes with modern macbooks did not function, sadly. I believe this isn't a regression but just the state of network hardware in modern Apple computers.
