Can someone provide me the kernel config file for this kernel version?

If possible the patches as well?

I am trying to rebuild the kernel for hostap injection support with PRISM2_DOWNLOAD_SUPPORT enable.


Thanks,
Capn_Fish
It already has packet injection. I don't know about download support. Why not just ask 2or0? He was very helpful when I asked for injection.

He seems very busy. I've sent him two PM and made some comment on his blog... but still no response yet.
Capn_Fish
Hmm...My impression is that he hasn't made the his patch list/sources/config public yet (he has to if asked to comply with the GPL, AFAIK). I suspect it's due to either hosting concerns, lack of time, or just the fact that it's a moving target and would be extra work to post the new stuff each time.

I got PM reply from 2or0. Very helpful.

I'll start my compiling today. happy.gif


Cheers.
Capn_Fish
Care to share the details (source, how to compile, etc.)?
abm_y4k
I will... but I am still on the way setting up scratchbox.

Hi,

I've successfully recompiled the kernel and the hostap driver for injection with firmware upgradeable.

It seems hard to find a proper way to do the cross compile so I'll like to share my steps with you all.

CODE
wget http://www.codesourcery.com/gnu_toolchains/arm/portal/package2549/public/arm-none-linux-gnueabi/arm-2008q1-126-arm-none-linux-gnueabi-i686-pc-linu
x-gnu.tar.bz2

tar xjf arm-2008q1-126-arm-none-linux-gnueabi-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.bz2

mv arm-2008q1 /usr/local

export PATH=/usr/local/arm-2008q1/bin/:$PATH

cd /usr/src

*download the kernel conf and patch file from http://yonggun.tistory.com/66
*save the kernel source to /usr/src

tar zxvf kernel-2.6.6.24.4.tar.gz

mv config linux-2.6.24.4/.config

cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.24.4

make zImage ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-none-linux-gnueabi-

make modules ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-none-linux-gnueabi-

make modules_install

* kernel should be in /usr/src/linux-2.6.24.4/arch/arm/boot/zImage
* modules should be in /lib/modules/
* make sure flash the kernel with the newly built modules


This might be very helpful for many ppl, forum admin should consider sticky this.
Thanks,

Been looking for this for such a long time unsure.gif , will give it a try on the weekend.
Thanks so much!

NP.

I've only tested and confirmed its working on C3100

Questions:

1. Are we missing the step to patch the kernel sources?

2. Does this cross-compiler support distcc?

3. Will
CODE
make uImage
instead of
CODE
make zImage
build for uBoot?

4. Could someone point me in the direction of the "fastfpe" and "cpufreq" patches?
(4a. They need to be applied separately right?)

5. How about tetsu's pressure sensitive patches? http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=e...cial%26hs%3D4zc

1. get the patch from yonggun's site. and apply it using patch -p0 < patch-2.6.24

2. Not sure.

3. I've not tried with uImage... since I am on sharp loader. I found uBoot give me a lot of trouble.. so I stick with the sharp happy.gif

4. fastfpe and cpufreg should be in that patch provided by 2or0

5. tetsu's patch are only refer to kernel 2.4.x not for 2.6.24.4

Hope helps.

Thanks a lot for your help. I'm not very experienced with kernel building and still having troubles.


1.==============================================

QUOTE

I'm not sure if this is right, but I renamed the patch from http://yonggun.tistory.com/66 to patch-2.6.24.4 and applied using
CODE
patch -p1 < patch-2.6.24.4
instead of -p0 (-p0 asked me on every step which file to patch). Is this patch valid for 2.6.24 only?

It also says on http://yonggun.tistory.com/66 that
QUOTE
These are patched with angstrom patches and without cpufreq.


I think the correct page for the patches is: http://yonggun.tistory.com/64, but I don't know for sure.

2.==============================================

doing
CODE
make zImage ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-none-linux-gnueabi-


works okay.

3.==============================================

doing
CODE
make uImage ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-none-linux-gnueabi-


immediately after says:

My next question is: how do I get uBoot to boot the kernel from SD or CF... i.e. why are there four copies (hda1,hda2,sd1,sd2) of the kernel on http://yonggun.tistory.com/72? Is this just to tell the kernel where the rootfs is?

You need to modify the kernel .config file and recompile it:

CONFIG_CMDLINE="console=ttyS0,115200n8 console=tty1 noinitrd root=/dev/hda1 rootfstype=ext3 rootdelay=1 rw fbcon=rotate:1 dyntick=enable debug"

change root=<device you want to boot it at>

Thanks! but I still don't think I'm building for uBoot properly, since there is no "uImage" in "arch/arm/boot" despite the output

Sorry I've not did any image for uboot... maybe you can ask 2or0. He is very helpful.

uboot is not stable... why not use sharp?

Because I would like to port debian to other pxa boards besides zaurus, and u-boot can help to do this. Unfortunately, I'm not very well versed with its mechanics, and I realize this probably isn't the thread for extensive u-boot discussion, although if I find a way to build the kernel for zaurus' u-boot, I think this is a reasonable place to put that info.

If you have "mkimage", just give a command as following:
CODE
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel -C none -a 0xa0008000 -e 0xa0008000 -n "Linux 2.6" -d zImage kernel.img

Where do I get "mkimage"? I was trying the wrong one from the "jigdo" package. The right one seems to only come with u-boot which needs to be compiled specifically for zaurus?

Sorry for being dense about this, but where can I find "mkimage" from pdaxrom stuff? I tried looking in the liveCD and the builder, but no luck.

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distri...axrom/download/


The closest thing I've found is

xchain-mkimage-u-boot.in
xchain-mkimage-u-boot.make
xchain-umkimage.make

from the builder, but this gives me:

"

Thanks for all your help 2or0.

Could someone help me collect new patches towards a newer kernel?

I'm still running 2.6.24 and I don't know how to gather the relevant patches.

I'm also looking for patches for the new kernel versions.
The only relevant patch I found is this one (for 2.6.30).

I haven't tried it yet.
Also here is a collection of pm-related patches which we might need:
