Hello, I'm a trying to compilation a kernel but i have some question.

I have a kurobox Pro with FreeLink ARM9 1.0 rev2 installed using the automatic method. This FreeLink has Kernel Version, and i need to compile a new one to add some modules.

Exactly want to mount DVD/ISO images and Fat32 partitions (USB HD with fat filesystem) but with this kernel i only can mount this kind of filesystem:

[fortu@KuroBox ~/ ] $ cat /proc/filesystems
nodev   sysfs
nodev   rootfs
nodev   bdev
nodev   proc
nodev   sockfs
nodev   usbfs
nodev   pipefs
nodev   futexfs
nodev   tmpfs
nodev   eventpollfs
nodev   devpts
nodev   ramfs
nodev   nfs
nodev   rpc_pipefs

So i have to compile a new kernel with those modules, but i never compile a Kernel so i need help to know what kernel supports my Kurobox Pro or how can i add these modules.

here is a sort of guide, but it may not be what you want. The user who did this guide (and I haven't tested it) did so w/ newer vanilla sources. The kernel you are running is from the Buffalo/Marvell sources, so is patched.

For reference, much is listed here:

Also, in particular, the original kernel source is in this dir : http://buffalo.nas-central.org/download ... PL/source/

I have built w/ vanilla and w/ the CodesourceryToolchain+Buffalosource... remember to convert the image to a uBoot kernel (mkimage) ... good luck!

Also, make sure you have a copy of the good kernel you have in case of some sort of mess-up. Do you have a serial cable so you can control your bootloader?
