How to build just the Replicant 4.2 kernel (Linux 3.0.64)?

Added by Tiberiu-Cezar Tehnoetic over 3 years ago

How can one build only the kernel (and modules for that kernel), and not all the Replicant system (it takes too long to download 20G)?

I need to compile some modules which are not by default in Linux 3.0.64 which is running in Replicant 4.2 0004.

What I tried is to download the snapshot here:

https://git.replicant.us/gitweb/?p=replicant/kernel/samsung/smdk4412.git;a=tree;h=57628814511eec6890bc5fe3820b42f745bd1f44;hb=4c52bc8a2ff3c0373d371995eaef34df98e1fa4c

and get the prebuilts from Google:

https://android.googlesource.com/platform/prebuilt/+/android-4.1.2_r2

But `make` still was interrupted by missing files/wrong file hierarchy.

Is it somewhere documented? Here at Replicant or at CyanogenMod? Can we find a simple solution? igor- tried to help me on IRC, but couldn't figure out the prebuilts part.

In the end, I had to download the 20G of system and source revisions in order to be able to build the kernel... Oh, well.

Were you doing this to add support for your wifi dongle? If so, did it work?

yeah, i'd be interested in this too, i want to add a kernel module but i'm struggling no end with linux for replicant - it is a different beast to that on my desktop. did you build the module you needed, or the complete kernel + new modules? any suggestions for useful tutorials?
