On importing separately compiled kernel.

Hello,

 

according to the guide on buidling a Linux kernel for AOSP, the compiled kernel should be copied into the AOSP source tree, but Oreo source tree is different,

so, am I correct that the compiled kernel should be copied into kernel/sony/msm-${TARGET_KERNEL_VERSION}/common-kernel/ ?

 

With kind regards,

liev.

Re: On importing separately compiled kernel.

Hi,

 

If you want to rebuild the kernels locally it is enough to run the script that rebuilds them.

 

The build_kernels.sh script is located in the kernel/sony/msm-*/common-kernel folder and should be launched in that folder.

 

Regards

Alin
