The 'master' branch from repository is where the development work takes place and you should use this if you're after to work with the latest cutting edge developments. It is possible trunk can suffer temporary periods of instability while new features are developed and if this is undesirable we recommend using one of the release branches. Use ONLY for development purposes.

Additional patches can be found at

Build kernel from sources

Download the latest unstable version sources and follow next steps:

git clone git:// linux
cd linux

Configure Linux kernel for IGEP Processor Boards. A generic configuration is provided for all ARM machines, and can be used as the default by

make ARCH=arm omap2plus_defconfig

Then build the kernel, the kernel modules and the device tree files. The result will be an zImage file in arch/arm/boot directory. Execute:

make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=[your cross compiler prefix] zImage modules dtbs

Note that you can install the kernel modules to your target rootfs

make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=[your cross compiler prefix] INSTALL_MOD_PATH=[path to your target rootfs] modules_install
