Compiling Kernel Modules


Recommended Posts

I have hardware that needs a kernel module in order to function.

This hardware module is not available via opkg manager, nor was I successful in locating a pre-compiled version via Google.

I am not familiar with compiling OpenWRT from scratch, nor cross-compiling source code for the Mark V ar71xx architecture.

If someone out there already has a setup suitable for compiling for the Mark V, Could you please compile either of the following modules the for those of us that could use either of them:

If this is to large of an ask, Please point me in the correct direction to instructions on how to do this myself with only a Live USB host and ethernet connected Mark V

Take a look at this: http://wiki.wifipineapple.com/index.php/Build_guide

Although you are likely to run into problems as things aren't documented as well as they could be.

Compiling OpenWRT kernel modules is documented plenty - by OpenWRT. We don't need to reinvent the wheel.

For more information, see http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/devel/packages#creating.packages.for.kernel.modules

Best Regards,
