File names and file content: brown

First I install debian jessie from the image netinstall

Once the file is installed modified /etc/apt/sources.list and I leave as follows:

deb http://ftp.es.debian.org/debian/ sid main
deb-src http://ftp.es.debian.org/debian/ sid main

The rest of the lines and let them change jessie commented by sid order to update the distribution.

Update distribution running the following commands as root:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get autoremove
reboot

install Grsecurity, kernel version may vary to find out what yours I run

apt-cache search grsecurity
.......
linux-image-4.4.0-1-grsec-amd64 - Linux 4.4 for 64-bit PCs, Grsecurity protection
.......

With this it is which version I need in my case 4.4.0-1

grsecurity installed, replaces the version for yours.

apt-get install linux-grsec-base linux-grsec-source-4.4 linux-grsec-support-4.4.0-1 linux-headers-4.4.0-1-common-grsec linux-headers-4.4.0-1-grsec-amd64 linux-image-4.4.0-1-grsec-amd64

Restart and then to verify that is working grsecurity run:

uname -a
