How can I download the source?
I would like to build it for my hardware.

Great job (I think since I did not try it out yet)

enable deb-src for liquorix I assume then get the sources, same as usual.

You can also I think browse the liquorix repo and get it directly.

You can run apt-get source linux-image-liquorix-amd64/i386 after adding the repository line with deb-src (just copy and paste the deb line and edit the new one). All the kernel packages share the same source, so any of them would work.

Then, to create your own package, simply run debuild in the package directory. You can edit debian/config/defines for the kernel version and run dch -i to modify the package version.

Let me know if you need anything else!

I asume the right way to do this is to install one first to get a config file I can use as base when I build my own kernel from source?

It was hard to find, but maybe it's me not used to browse the repos.
So I can only coppy the deb in sources list and add src to it?

Sound easy enough.

If you're browsing the repo manually, look for the source and diff package. The source package is the raw kernel source and the diff contains the configuration patches and debian infrastructure to build the package.

The raw kernel source will also be one of the largest packages, not hard to miss.

I was not able to apt-get it from the repo, but I found it after some time.
Did not try to build it since I want to make a instralled one work first so I have a working config file to start with.
I gues the developer(s) here know more than me so I only want to set up prosesor type and sutch so my laptop will give max performance.
