This is a custom kernel for use with QEMU/KVM.
It is intended to be small (it has an Installed-Size: 8348).

It works for me on a QEMU/KVM virtual machine using libvirt and
virt-manager and also on two different VPS providers using KVM.

It supports ext4, btrfs, lvm and little more, but it has initrd
so it may be used to have rootfs on a lvm.

It was created using "make localyesconfig" from the Debian default
kernel. The matching .config file may be found here:


To install:

apt-get install ca-certificates apt-transport-https
apt-key add sanvila.asc
echo "deb jessie main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sanvila.list
apt-get update
apt-get install linux-image-3.16.43-qemu-amd64

To remove:

apt-get install linux-image-amd64
[ Boot with Debian default kernel ]
dpkg --purge linux-image-3.16.43-qemu-amd64
rm -f /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sanvila.list

There is also a dependency package called just "linux-image-qemu-amd64"
which is supposed to depend on the latest kernel available here.

As usual: NO WARRANTY.
