builing an installable kernel deb

Tue Jul 09, 2019 9:47 am

Got the kernel .config, and its still building. thank you PeterO

Now what is the magic incantation for dpkg-buildpackage, to get an installable .deb? Or is there something else I need enlightened on? I am not at all familiar with how the build for u-boot is accomplished. I'm used to x86 stuff booted by grub.

Thanks folks.

Not quite sure what you are trying to do, but in terms of building the kernel and the packaging it into a deb file, I suggest you take a look at the Hypriot project on github, in particular there kernel building scripts which spit out a deb file as the end result.
