BBB kernel sources download

I’ve been trying to build a BBB kernel using Robert Nelson’s scripts from the instructions
on eewiki; however, there seems to be no way to download the git sources. Does anyone
have a working script for this?

I’m building on a 32-bit machine, and the Linaro compiler is 64-bit, but if I can just get the
correctly patched sources I should be ok. I’d skip the Linaro stuff, but I can’t work out the
format of the name for a local toolchain.

Running I get:

scripts/git: LINUX_GIT not defined in
cloning into default location: /home/cwr/BBB/linux-dev/ignore/linux-src
Cloning into ‘/home/cwr/BBB/linux-dev/ignore/linux-src’…
fatal: unable to access ‘’: SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate

Any ideas?

in debian/ubuntu, this package is "ca-certificates", or your system clock
is way off, you really need to fix that first..


The clocks is accurate to within a few seconds, and the package ca-certificates is installed.
