Building the kernel (v3.8.x branch)

Hi there,

I try to build a kernel for my BB based on the v3.8.x branch.
I checked out the branch, setup the file and executed ./ and installed it via the tools/ script.

But on the BB it hangs after: Starting kernel…

I didn’t change anything on the kernel sources.

Any hints?

Could you let everyone in the forum know which BB you have?


based on the dtb he is loading I’d say the beagelbone white. But I have seen others try using the whites board blob on the Beaglebone black too . . .

Hopefully he is using a beaglebone too . . .
