Planning on trying out certain things on QEMU prior to trying on real hardware. I’ve got the rootfs package from Narcissus, but wondering if building the kernel is the only option, or is there some pre-built Linux kernel image (zImage*.bin) , and corresponding modules ? Or is building it on one’s own the only option ? I already searched the Angstrom wiki, mailing list and googled around, but didn’t find anything, so though of confirming, before going to the process of building it own my own.
If you select one of the qemu machines in narcissus you'll get kernel and modules if you check the "all kernel modules" checkbox.
Okay, did that. Now I have the kernel modules, but kernel is a broken link, no file ! Also link anyhow points to a very old kernel. Shouldn’t the kernel be based on the latest Angstrom 2011.03, which I was expecting to be pretty recent kernel.

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 2011-06-12 10:24 zImage → zImage-2.6.26-rc4
Maybe I am making some silly mistakes, or not able to wrap my head completely around this. Could you tell me how do I get the latest (pre-built) kernel (from Narcissus) and corresponding set of modules ?
Can anyone pls help ? I’ve downloaded another image, but still no real zImage.
