(Tutorial) Cross-Compiling Linux Kernels on x86_64: A Tutorial on How to Get Started - Shuah Khan, Samsung

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Linux Kernel is currently supported on over 30+ different hardware architectures. This is a huge benefit for Linux adoption on a wide range of deployments. However, the ability to build and test Linux kernels on all possible supported architectures requires having access to such test systems for each of these architectures which is not easy by any means. Therefore, the ability to cross-compile non-native architectures on an architecture that is widely supported such as the x86_64 helps address the building kernels part of the problem.

This talk will present the details of where to find cross-compilers packages for architectures, how to install them, and how to automate compile on each of these architectures on an x86 system. This talk will be of great benefit to any software developer trying to build and test Linux kernel on non-native hardware architecture.
