Kernel Build, native on DockStar

Debian Wheezy

Andreas posted infos to the long term kernel 3.0 http://geekparadise.de/dockstar-kernel/

Ubuntu 12.04 uses for the Long Term Edition kernel 3.2.0.

At the moment it is not clear which newer kernel is good supported (2012-08-29).

In the forum, 2012-07-14 a new install script is posted from Jeff.

It looks like to better not use it now for the Dockstar (2012-08-29).

Arc number

arcNumber 2097 = Marvell SheevaPlug

In order to change the arcNumber to DockStar do the following:

$ sudo fw_setenv arcNumber 2998

Getting the Source Code

The source code can be found: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-2.6.35.9.tar.bz2 (66 MB)
Version 2.6.35.9 is from 2010-11-22. Because Version 2.6.36 is out by 2010-10-20, it can be assumed that version 2.6.35.9 should be stable.

Setup for compiling

Native compiling on the DockStar does also work now, about 2.5 hours total.
Prerequisite:

apt-get install git-core debhelper build-essential fakeroot kernel-wedge uboot-mkimage
additional 
apt-get install libncurses5-dev  # for make menuconfig
