sarvex, there are other packages to fulfill this role, this package is for users who want to build a specific git-version.

Cloning the git repository for building the kernel is a huge waste of bandwidth.

It would be far more efficient to use the mainline compressed tar from the website

Hi,

I maintain a couple packages whose based on this one... and I have a minor problem I haven't been able to solve. On GRUB, the kernels from this pakage and the ones based on it all show up the same, as "git" rather than a more informative name.

Where does that "git" come from? I haven't been able to find it to change it to something else... maybe it's obvious and I'm blind, though xD

+1 to bradmccormack100 , I have 600-700 KB/sec from kernel.org, 2-3 MB/sec from github, and 9-10MB/sec from google mirror

Hi,

Is it worth updating the git source to git+https://kernel.googlesource.com/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux and use Google's mirror which is a LOT faster.

The original source clones at about 20-30KB a second a lot of the time. The updated mirror clones about 10MB/s.

This is at the same time of testing for both sources. I'm from Australia and the difference in speed is huge.

I'm now having a new issue

make[4]: *** No rule to make target '/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/7.2.0/include/stddef.h', needed by '/home/hs/builds/linux-git/src/linux/tools/objtool/fixdep.o'.  Stop.

EDIT: I was able to fix this by removing src folder and building again.

I would like to build this package inside a docker container, headless.

Can you introduce a way to bypass make olddefconfig and instead just use the defaults, for example by setting an environment variable like NONINTERACTIVE, UNATTENDED or HEADLESS?
