I'm running Chris Boot's Debian Wheezy on my Pi. Until recently I've used his kernel packages but now have a requirement to compile my own.
Chris has some nice instructions on his website for building an Arm Cross-Compiler (http://www.bootc.net/archives/2012/05/2 ... pberry-pi/). I've successfully followed these and now have a Pi compatible compiler on a PC. Next I've extracted the .config from my active Pi but the next steps elude me.
I assume I want the kernel from git://github.com/raspberrypi/linux.git, rather than the stock linux kernel?
Next, copy in the .config and run:
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=path/to/armgcc oldconfig
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=path/to/armgcc menuconfig
Normally I'd then run make-kpkg to compile the kernel into a Debian Package but I can't find any information on this step or any prerequisites to it. I'd really appreciate some guidance.
