Filed under
Howtos

I have recently made a script that will download the 2.6.17.7 kernel and patch it with the latest grsecurity patch. you just do these commands
[code]
wget www.evolution-security.com/files/grkern.sh[/code]

[code]chmod 755 grkern.sh[/code]

[code]./grkern.sh[/code]

After it does the patching it will open up a nano file to tell you what to do next, All you have to do with this script is the make menuconfig and enable alll the features you need and enable the grsecurity.
