Need source or wrapper to rebuild sdl_hub.ko

Honored Contributor II

I am trying to use the remote debugging feature for system level debug on a Cyclone V per Altera App note 693. 


It calls out a download that includes a pre-compiled sld_hub.ko kernel module. The problem is that I have rebuilt the kernel (and am actually using v3.12). Which kernel was this compiled for? The .zip file doesn't contain any versioning information at all. Is there a repository for older kernels (we have a customer on 3.8 and another using 3.12). What configuration or kernel APIs are required? I am trying to use this with a custom board, so I am fairly certain the module won't load without rebuilding it against my kernel tree. 


How do I do this? 


Kernel modules, at least some level of wrapper for them to support linking against a specific kernel version, are supposed to be open-source. I appreciate the desire to keep the specific JTAG interface proprietary (though I don't fully understand what real benefit that provides), but this app note seems fairly useless if you aren't using the exact kernel version supplied by the GRHD.

The kernel referred to in AN693 is not available on the rocket boards git tree. 


How do i use the sld hub component with the 3.13 kernel?
