Title: Olimage Build Scripts
Post by: afancher on August 23, 2020, 03:39:14 am
Moved this question to its own thread as it was somewhat off-topic for the one I originally posted in, sorry for the double post.

I was wondering if there is currently an option to configure the kernel use a modified kernel configuration with the build scripts?

If not, is that something that could be implemented in the future (would allow a make menuconfig)?

Thanks

Just wanted to ever so slightly *bump* this thread (sorry if that's considered rude here)

Would be really awesome to have access to the kernel configuration, would probably also reduce the need to release a new build when various users' needs arise for certain modules to be built into the kernel.
 
Thanks!

Hello,

I didn't find a way to directly compile a kernel using olimage scripts but I'm not a docker and makefile specialist.
But there is a way to compile kernel. Download kernel sources: https://github.com/OLIMEX/linux-olimex and make it. After succesfull build you need to make itb image for new build kernel and put everything in sd card.

BR,
Lukasz
