I have a new BeagleBone Black (rev C) and got it booting from SD with the Debian 4GB SD image from 2015-03-01.
My goal is to cross compile a kernel on my Linux PC and move the necessary files to the Debian SD card.
So… I got the 4.1.1 Linux kernel from here:
git clone git://github.com/beagleboard/linux.git
And then built the new kernel like this from what I gleaned on the web:
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- bb.org_defconfig
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- uImage am335x-boneblack.dtb LOADADDR=0x80008000
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- modules
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- modules_install INSTALL_MOD_PATH=./MODULES
tar czf target_modules.tgz lib
Success! Compiled with no errors. Now I have a uImage, a dtb, and a tarball of the modules to move the SD card.
BUT, when I look at the /boot dir on the Debian SD it seems to need vmlinuz and and initrd.
Can someone PLEASE advise on either how to use what I have built, or how to build what I need to update the SD card.
I’m not looking for an automated solution, I would rather understand the details at this point.
