How to install the updated kernel image?


I installed Ubuntu on my Beagle Board xM RevC, and the kernel version is 3.0.4-x3. In order to modify the kernel source code, I firstly download below script, which will download the corresponding kernel source code and ‘make’ the kernel image, modules and headers.

And after execute the script on my Beagle Board, I get the zImage of kernel. Then my question is how to install it to the Beagle Board? Just run ‘make install’?




Overview: run mkimage on the zimage and copy the uImage to the boot
partition and the modules to the root partiition..

Quick way:
Uncomment out #MMC=/location/of/your/sd/card
uncomment #ZRELADDR=0x80008000 (for omap3/4/)

Then if your partitions is /dev/mmcblk0p1 & /dev/mmcblk0p2 from
stable-kernel dir..

. ./tools/ (note there is no error detection in this
script, so make sure MMC is set correctly..)


Hi Robert,

Thank you very much for your info! I will try it later.
