I have a mac running snow leopard and I know that I cannot compile the linux kernel. I have used a linux VM (virtualbox) to compile the kernel but I was wondering if I could compile it on eclipse (galileo).
So I'm able to compile source code for my specific device and I'm able to compile custom a kernel. I flash them separately and they work. And I can replace boot.img inside the ROM to replace the stock kernel and that also works. I would like to compile custom kernel with the ROM instead of flashing and compiling them separating?
I am looking for some tutorials where I can learn to compile Linux kernel and create my own Linux distro. I don't want to create a copy of Ubuntu or I don't want to install my compiled codes in Ubuntu. I want to create new linus OS which I can share with my friends. I want to know that how can I create desktop graphics in my custom OS and other features like Ubuntu.
I want to compile and later modify a Linux kernel code but I cannot do it by installing and running separate Linux system like Ubuntu and then compiling this kernel on linux system as I am not able to work on full fledged Linux system(Laptop hardware problems).I want to do it on Windows 7.Is there a way that I can do it?
I am trying to compile Linux kernel 3.17.0-rc5 in my x86-64 laptop following Debian kernel compiling instructions. Earlier I have successfully compiled my own kernel images for a long time on my laptop running Debian Wheezy, currently I'm running my custom 3.14.0-rc4.
I am compiling a kernel for making a router. I know a way to enable IP forwarding in an existing linux system. Even in compile time, CONFIG_IP_FORWARD is said to do the task. I am configuring vanilla kernel 3.12.14 using gtk kernel configurator (gconfig) and can't see this option anywhere surprisingly. Is there an alternate parameter in recent kernels or am I missing something?
