Hi Geoffroy,

To build SOS using the acrn-kernel repo, you could follow the instructions on
this wiki page [1]. Though it provides flexibility to customize your own kernel,
I am concerned to replace the PKT kernels with it, as it's going to fragment
"Intel kernel". IMO
I think we need to look at this from the perspective of what gets tested. It's a great idea to have this kernel easily available here so people can recompile and modify it. My concern is how do we ensure that it is the same as what is being tested by the validation teams.

We need similar instructions posted on the public website (this link is Intel-only).


Regards,
Tonny

Hi folks,

A couple of questions regarding the https://github.com/projectacrn/acrn-
kernel repository:
* Where can I find instructions on how to use it?
* Should we switch the Clear Linux reference package to use it?
(I vote 'yes' to this latter question :-))
