recompile kernel

Description (last modified by stappers)

I need to recompile the debwrt kernel.
I've download the sources and the kernel tool.
Where is located the debwrt kernel? The boot folder is empty.
Is there some other attention (out of standard Debian recompile procedure) to put in the procedure?

The source of debwrt indeed misses an INSTALL file in the top level directory.

A start for INSTALL


You managed to download the source, next steps are

 make menuconfig

Now you have a kernel and a rootfs
Copy the root filesystem to a disk

Flash the kernel in the debwrt device

Attach the disk to the debwrt device

Powercycle the debwrt device

If you have fixed to have a build enviroment, you can build a kernel by doing the following:

you go to your build enviroment, probally a directory called ~/src/trunk
and then:
make menuconfig
make openwrt/menuconfig
make openwrt/all V=99
