I've been able to get debian 3.0.3-x2 installed using the Robert
Nelson netinstall scripts. I now need to load two kernel modules
l2tp_eth & l2tp_netlink. As they appear to not be compiled with the
kernel, I'm assuming that I need to recompile with the relevant
I'm a little lost with how to recompile 3.0.3-x2 for beagleboard.
I've recompiled a few times on intel hardware which was all pretty
standard. From what I have read, there is a whole list of patches
that have to be applied for the omap / beagle hardware.
I've found the following tutorial for recompiling a 2.6.29

If anyone could point me in the right direction for how to build a
kernel >= 2.35 with modules l2tp_eth & l2tp_netlink it would be very
The script is use for building said debian 3.0.3-x2 is available here:
Let me know which modules you need enabled..
Will this work for you:

Then installed, binutils-arm-linux-gnueabi and gcc-4.4-arm-linux-
