Hammer How to buildroot
The following steps were successful using the Gutsy Gibbon release (7.10) of ubuntu. All commands are executed from the command line.
First, you need to install the compilers and tools.
sudo apt-get install build-essential libncurses-dev bison flex texinfo zlib1g-dev gettext libssl-dev wget
Decide where you're going to build everything. I decided to create a directory called hammer in my home directory.
cd ~ mkdir -p hammer/source cd hammer/source
Note: If you copy the whole directory tree from the CD, you'll get a directory called SOURCE which will be read-only. I prefer lowercase filenames, so I renamed the files. The files on the CD were also truncated to 8.3 filenames, so the names won't match what you see here.
Grab the latest files (these were from the Hammer_Board_Software page). This assumes that you're still in the source directory
wget http://www.elinux.org/images/4/4c/Buildroot-01032008.tar.gz wget http://www.elinux.org/images/f/ff/Hammer-linux-2.6.22-09122007.diff.gz wget http://www.elinux.org/images/e/ef/Hammer-kernel-config wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-2.6.22.tar.gz
tar xzf Buildroot-01032008.tar.gz cd buildroot cp Hammer-config .config make oldconfig Exit from menuconfig without making any changes. This creates the .config.cmd file make cd ..
Add the cross compiler tools into your path. You may want to add this to your ~/.bashrc, although you should replace $(pwd) with the absolute path to your hammer/source directory.
Build the kernel:
tar xzf linux-2.6.22.tar.gz gunzip -c Hammer-linux-2.6.22-09122007.diff.gz | patch -p0 cd linux-2.6.22 cp hammer-config .config make oldconfig make zImage
The kernel can be found in arch/arm/boot/zImage
