How to compile newest kernel for the Antboard

Make sure you have installed git or use following command to install it:

apt-get install git

Do git clone of kernel stable version:

git clone http://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git
cd linux-stable
git checkout master (or you prefer version, for better support Antboard, use 3.18 at least)
make defconfig
wget http://www.elinux.org/images/e/e2/Minnowmax-3.18.txt
scripts/kconfig/merge_config.sh .config Minnowmax-3.18.txt
make -j4 && make -j4 modules

Now we have a new kernel ready and modules, if you build the new kernel in Antboard, use following commands to install it:

cp bzImage boot/vmlinuz-3.16.0-4-686-pae # your current Linux version
make modules_install
