OSADL Project: "Latest Stable" PREEMPT_RT realtime Linux kernel

  • Download kernel, unpack it, download patch, patch the kernel
cd /usr/src/kernels
tar -jxf linux-3.12.33.tar.bz2
mv linux-3.12.33 linux-3.12.33-rt47
cd linux-3.12.33-rt47
bzip2 -d patch-3.12.33-rt47.bz2
patch -p1 <patch-3.12.33-rt47
  • Configure the kernel, enable CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT

  • Compile, link and install the kernel
make modules_install install
  • Reboot and select the new kernel

More detailed instruction


How to enable real-time capabilities of the mainline kernel including hints how to check the real-time capabilities of the newly compiled kernel is further explained here.
