Talk:Raspberry Pi Kernel Compilation
This page could use a re-organization. Currently, most of the page is concerned with cross-platform compilation, with a lot of duplication in the kernel build step. I propose a breakdown thus:
- Getting the toolchain for cross-compilation (if needed)
- Configuring the kernel
- with special emphasis on built-in vs. modular drivers
- Building the kernel
- Installing the kernel
Another possibility is to give cross-compilation its own page, to cover toolchain acquisition for different host platforms. Given that the RPi isn't the only embedded to use ARM CPU's, such a page could serve the same purpose for several ARM platforms. (For that matter, each CPU on such a page could have its own section on toolchain acquisition.) Then, the "kernel compilation" page could deal more succinctly with process of configuring and building the kernel for the RPi platform.
