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

Ubuntu 10.04

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 \
$ sudo dpkg -i liblimit-dev_1.3_amd64.deb linux-headers-2.6.32-limit_1.3_amd64.deb \
$ sudo reboot

Installation (Generic)

There are two parts to installing LiMiT: kernel patching and library installation.
