Raspbmc - How to build kernel?

Thu Sep 27, 2012 6:38 pm

Hello!

I'm new to this distribution and I would like to install some modules which are not enabled default. I've tried to run script build_kernel.sh from http://www.raspbmc.com/wiki/technical/kernel/, but at the end there are just a lot of errors.

What do I have to install before running build_kernel.sh and from which directory I must run this script?

Thanks in advance! :)

You would need to install Raspbmc found on their site.

I have already installed Raspbmc on SD card, but what should I do before I run build_kernel.sh on Raspberry Pi?

I'am also trying to figure out how to build my own kernel, but I'm quite sure that this script is not meant to run on the pi, but another host system (i368) where you put your building-root on. This is a complete filesystem-structure on a i368 linux-machine from where you cross complile for the ARM-machine.
