Hello,

I am curious as to how much development here will be done since the LS Pro already has kernel 2.6 installed. Will we just be attempting to compile successful minor updates and kernel mods then? I believe that compiling the kernel for the LS-GL should not be as difficult as compiling for the LS2, but what do you guys think? This is just merely a curiousity.

it depends on the provided GPL-sources of course.

someone should setup a native toolchain on the LS Pro and just try to compile the kernel from the GPL sources.

bad that they did not provide us the UBoot sources. but i suppose there is a way to boot a kernel via tftp if you trigger that via the serial with write access. then we could test the kernels that way.

damn...it isn`t available anywere here..

Should be able to rebuild UBoot from any kernel sources provided.

I have managed to compile a kernel using the codesourcery toolchain and insmod a kernel module.

My plan is to apply patches to get the kernel to 2.6.18. I am upto 2.6.15 with clean compiles.

I still need to either install a serial cable or work out an easy way to switch the drive.

I might try tonight to replace the existing kernel with my own version by using the kernel sources from the gpl download and just change the extra version to make sure I know where the kernel image is located.

did anyone successfully find the location of the kernel yet? building the kernel is trivial i using my own toolchain, not even the codesourcery's one (as mine is surely using the same glibc and all other craps as the target is using)

Any reason why u guys want to update to the latest kernel, is that patch from ftp://ftp.arm.linux.org.uk/pub/linux/?

From what I can see from the box, most of it was built using the codesourcery's cross tool chain.

@Javascout: I am waiting to see how you are doing with the kernel. Hope its going well :)

It is /boot/uImage.buffalo (currently Linux-2.6.12.6-arm1)

and can be found here:
http://buffalo.nas-central.org/download/uploads/LS_Pro_temporary/Kernels/ls-gl-pro-kernel-21-oct-2006.tar.gz

lb_worm...i do no know how to use mkimage...until know it was used automatically while making the kernel.

i think it might be a good idea to compile mkimage for arm...

if the kernel does not work then worst case should be that you have to open the LS Pro again and swap the kernel on the hdd..
