Warning: LiMiT's kernel patch is alpha-quality. It has some known bugs which cause kernel panics, crashing your machine. They are not triggered often, but LiMiT should not be run on production machines
Use the packages provided above to install a LiMiT-enabled kernel and associated libraries. After installation, reboot. If necessary, select the LiMiT kernel when you reboot. A session to do this might look something like the following:
$ wget http://castl.cs.columbia.edu/files/liblimit-dev_1.3_amd64.deb \ http://castl.cs.columbia.edu/files/linux-headers-2.6.32-limit_1.3_amd64.deb \ http://castl.cs.columbia.edu/files/linux-image-2.6.32-limit_1.3_amd64.deb $ sudo dpkg -i liblimit-dev_1.3_amd64.deb linux-headers-2.6.32-limit_1.3_amd64.deb \ linux-image-2.6.32-limit_1.3_amd64.deb $ sudo reboot
There are two parts to installing LiMiT: kernel patching and library installation.
- Kernel Patching: A patch for the Linux 2.6.32 kernel is provided on the download page. Please refer to kernel patching directions for your Linux distribution for instructions on installing a kernel patch.
- Library install: make && sudo make install
