building kernel instructions

is there a new kernel build guide for edison? build kernel edisonbsp_ug_331188007.pdf says

tar xvf edison-src.tgz

 

cd edison-src/

where is the latest edison-sr.tgz ? the latest download appear to be a zip ?

I downloaded and uncompressed the latest source ( large 1.2gb file ) into ubuntu 16.01 running in virtual box but I need edison-src.tgz

 

I am assuming I need the large yokto source and the intel BSP recipies? is that correct ?

Hello bennnn,

 

 

Thanks for reaching out!

 

 

The BSP guide you mentioned is a little bit out of date, nevertheless, you can find the instructions on how to build Edison's image in a file included on the source code. You can find the latest source code in https://iotdk.intel.com/src/3.5/edison/. The file with the instructions is called README.edison.

 

 

In case you have any doubts about how to use the BSP and its tools, I'd suggest you to read Yocto's Mega Manual ( http://www.yoctoproject.org/docs/1.7.3/mega-manual/mega-manual.html), this documents contains a lot of useful information about Yocto's BSP and all of its tools.

 

 

I hope this helps.

 

-Peter.
