If you are only interested in using Linux/PARISC then please see the
The instructions on this page are very similar, but different from,
instructions in Build The Kernel.
A nice project would be for someone to remove some of the redundancy.
Pre-built cross compiler and linker
are available to build a parisc kernel on an x86 linux host.
The masochist wishing to build their own cross compiler should read the
REQUIREMENTS FOR BUILDING KERNELS
HOW TO BUILD THE KERNEL
The kernel source tree is available via
and nightly snapshots.
It is best to get a snapshot first and update using CVS.
- Fetch kernel source
- Unpack the source:
zcat linux-latest.tar.gz | tar -xf -
zcat palo-latest.tar.gz | tar -xf -
- Configure palo:
# You may want to edit the palo Makefile, to specify NFS or local root.
# Some old NFSROOT instructions are available here.
- Configure linux:
# You might want to do a "make config" here as well if the kernel
# defaults don't suit you.
- Build the kernel
That's it! The resulting
palo/lifimage is bootable from
any IO interface the PDC can find with "search" command and already
contains both vmlinux and palo executables.
