I am trying to compile a linux kernel (18.104.22.168) for an ARM board (versatilepb), it is my first steps in embedded linux.
At the end of the compilation, two compressed kernel images are generated inside
/arch/i386/boot directories, and not inside
/arch/arm/boot. So it looks like that it doesn't compile for an ARM guest.
First, i call
make versatile_defconfig in order to generate a default configuration file. I also type
make menuconfig to enable the option
Use the ARM EABI to compile the kernel. Then i use
make V=1 with root privilege for compilation (it doesn't work without). In my environment, these two variables are defined :
Is it normal to have a lot of questions during the compilation process, even after generating the configuration file ? Questions are about the kernel compression mode, processor family, ... And for this last one, answers seem to be only x86 an similar cpu !
