I downloaded a fresh kernel that I'm planning on using in a VM. In the instructions of the tutorial I'm using, I'm told
You will also need to build a new instance of the kernel, and ensure that it will boot in the VM. To do this, move to your source tree, copy config-3.14.26-yocto-qemu to $SRC_ROOT/.config (where $SRC_ROOT is the root of your linux tree), and run
make -j4 all.
I did that by
cd linux-yocto-3.14to go to the root of the linux tree
mkdir .configto make the configuration folder that didn't exist in this brand new kernel
config-3.14.26-yocto-qemufrom outside the kernel into
- While at the root of the kernel, executing
make -j4 all
My concern is that after this step, the guide says it'll take about 5-minutes or so to build and that I can simply just leave it to do its thing; I thought the point of the config file was to build the kernel for me. Instead, I get prompted with the typical kernel build setup screen where I have to go through every single option to build the kernel. Did I do something wrong?
