Hammer How to build Kernel
Here is how to build a custom kernel:
NOTE: If you are installing a custom rootfs, you may have to increase the size of the space in flash to hold the new rootfs image. You do this by editing the linux-<version>/arch/arm/mach-s3c2410/mach-tct_hammer.c file. Find the .size string and change the value to be a little larger than your rootfs image is. The image size is in hex, so you will have to do a conversion to get the right value.
Some common values for .size are:
2 MB = 0x340000 3 MB = 4 MB = 5 MB = 6 MB = 8 MB =
You may have to increase the size of your initramfs/initrd to accomodate your ramdisk image if the uncompressed size is larger than about 12 MB. There will be both compressed and uncompressed rootfs images in the buildroot/binaries/<project> directory. To do this, you have to set the size of the initramfs/initrd in the kernel. Find Block Devices in the kernel configuration and set the size to be just a little larger than your uncompressed initramfs/initrd. Only add a multiple of 1024 bytes.
tar xzf linux-2.6.22.tar.gz cd linux-2.6.22 zcat ../Hammer-linux-2.6.22-09122007.diff.gz | patch -p1 Edit linux-<version>/arch/arm/mach-s3c2410/mach-tct_hammer.c to change .size if needed. cp hammer-config .config make oldconfig make zImage make modules
The kernel can be found in arch/arm/boot/zImage
