Building an RPI 3.6.11 kernel with PPS support on GPIO pin 24.
Straight forward instructions with no BS and no fancy crap.
PSA: To people writing how-to’s, keep your shiny Linux CLI kung-fu on your resume and off your blog.
If you are interested in compiling a custom kernel for other reasons just skip/replace the PPS specific junk below.
Add Emdebian to sources.list:
# Xcompile Toolchain
deb http://www.emdebian.org/debian/ squeeze main
Install the packages we need:
apt-get install emdebian-archive-keyring
apt-get install gcc-4.4-arm-linux-gnueabi
Create directories for your build:
mount 10.1.1.104:/NAS/admin /admin
||Linux 3.6.11+ armv6l
||Pi Rev. B
||Generic AMD A4-3400 APU Dual Core
188.8.131.52 was *unable* to successfully authenticate to any valid user.
Attack was mitigated at the firewall (DROP).
firstname.lastname@example.org was contacted about this event.
2 NAS servers both with 802.3ad bonded gigE nics based on the Realtek 8169 chip.
The highest MTU I could set was 7000 even though the D-Link DGS-1210-24 Rev. A switch can support up to 10k.
Below is just a single sample, but all tests stayed within 57x Mbits for MTU=1500 and 77xMbits for MTU=7000.
The important bits.
iperf was used for this testing.

Use Chris’ PPS kernel (until I have time or am compelled to compile my own).
Compile ntp 4.2.6p5 as follows (from aquarat):
But first: apt-get install libcap-dev
./configure --enable-ATOM --enable-NMEA --enable-linuxcaps; make; make install
Disable TTY on /dev/AMA0 in /boot/cmdline.txt
dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline rootwait
Set baud rate in /boot/config.txt
Disable GPU sdram pause
# Disable GPU sdram mem pause
Comment out getty in /etc/inittab:
#Spawn a getty on Raspberry Pi serial line
#T0:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyAMA0 115200 vt100
Add pps-gpio to /etc/modules
I found a blurb about ridding my logs of those useless “Connection from UDP” messages in my log files.
Why this isn’t the default I can only imagine (some will claim security I’m sure).
Here’s what I got out of it. That the below settings, added to /etc/default/snmpd will get rid of the useless messages but still log error messages.
SNMPDOPTS='-LS 0-4 d -Lf /dev/null -p /var/run/snmpd.pid'
I restarted snmpd and it seems to function as expected.
