Now, don't get me wrong, that's the charm and beauty of Li...

Kernel compiling for Pi 2

Hi,

I am trying to compile the Raspbian kernel for my new Pi 2 ( I need support for ELO / Egalax Touch).
I can't find any hints how to configure the kernel sources / Makefile to generate me a kernel7.img
Anyone, who can help ?

Thanks, Steffen
