I'm currently using OMV 1.19 Kralizec, running on kernel 3.19.3 (compiled by macester, a user on this forum). This is because I have 3 data disks which are in a BTRFS raid5 configuration. The 3.19.3 Kernel was needed for stable(-ish) raid56 support in btrfs.
Since then, there has been further development on btrfs front and I would like to go to a newer kernel and btrfs-tools version.
- Is it possible to upgrade to a new kernel (4.x) while on Debian 7, OMV 1.19?
(I would be able to use an OMV 2.1 installation if that is necessary. Since I use OMV as a VM with raw device mapping for my data drives, it is easy enough to create a 2.1 install of OMV).
- If not, is it possible compile one myself (any pointers as to how to go about that would be appreciated)?
Thanks in advance
