Previously, in a tutorial titled How to Install the LTSI-3.10 Kernel on Raspberry Pi and MinnowBoard, I introduced how you can build and install a kernel with an LTSI patch applied on Raspberry Pi and MinnowBoard.

You've probably heard Jono Bacon speak at a Linux or Open Source conference. Or maybe you've heard one of his podcasts or read something he's written in his job as Ubuntu's community manager or even, perhaps, read The Art of Community, which is Jono's well-regarded book about building online communities. Jono also wrote and performed the heavy metal version of Richard M. Stallman's infamous composition, The Free Software Song.
