Ahoy freedom fighters! I've put together a little script that grabs the latest Linux-libre kernel and compiles it. Adding an entry to LILO along the way. Enjoy!

https://github.com/ryanpcmcquen/linuxTweaks/blob/master/slackware/kernelLibreLatestMe.sh

Installation and usage instructions are at the top of the script.

It will not add a LILO entry if your system doesn't have LILO.

Also if you use EFI, I made a script to replace LILO, so you can still run it on kernel upgrades:

https://github.com/ryanpcmcquen/linuxTweaks/blob/master/slackware/EFI/lilo

Installed like so:

## Detect efi and replace lilo with a script that works:
if [ -d /boot/efi/EFI/boot/ ]; then
  cp -v /sbin/lilo /sbin/lilo.orig
  wget -N https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ryanpcmcquen/linuxTweaks/master/slackware/EFI/lilo -P /sbin/
fi
