downloading kernel source

What is needed to get the kernel source? I have jumped through
numerous hoops, from deciphering cryptic bitmap images, cutting and
pasting security codes, email validation, ssh key generation, sign up
for the team, enter password and still

bzr: ERROR: Permission denied: "/dev/2.6-stable/": [Errno 13]
Permission denied: '/dev/2.6-stable/'

please assist.

Thanks.

Umm.. do you really want to write to "/dev/"

http://tldp.org/LDP/sag/html/dev-fs.html

It's not exactly the best place to be writing random files..

Put it somewhere in your home directory..

Regards,

whoops. asleep at the wheel. Thank you sudo

Love it (-:

You have 3 choices

1) Learn OE and bitbake and Angstrom and recipes or look at Steve Sakomans site
He has posted some instructions which I also have

2) Ubuntu -
a) follow elinux ability to get source
b) ARM/OMAPMaverickInstall - Ubuntu Wiki no source


3) Use 2B to get up and running and follow the official Ubuntu TI release notes to get source(This choice is least painful with Panda)

I will go out on a limb and say option 2 you will get email replies

I wont even comment on getting help for Angstrom (beyond read the notes and insults)
Hopefully Steves instructions will change this

You really shouldn't even be downloading/compiling the kernel as
root. Sudo is to be used sparingly. Put the tree in your home directory
and compile as an unprivileged user.

I agree with Ben. Never do any work as root. Use root or sudo only to install software or to do bonafide administration tasks like adding users.

I do all my own work as a standard user (also known as "unprivileged user", but I like the term "standard" better because it suggests you can still do significant amounts of work.)
