The platformx releases and sources can be found at https://sourceforge.net/projects/platformx.
These instructions describe how to do complete system builds (file system and kernel) from the sources in the platformx CVS repository on Sourceforge. They can be found at http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/platformx/.
If you have never used this build process before go the setup page which describes how to check out the system from Sourceforge and create your environment. This process assures that all the appropriate modules will be checked out and located in the correct place.
I'm going to assume that this is the first time you have built platformx and you are in the directory you wish to place the local repository.
SFCVS=:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/platformx rm -rf platx # Let's start clean platx-generic -d $SFCVS # CVS check out cd platx make generic.config # Get the generic configuration make menuconfig # Optional - adjust local configuration make # Do the build
The kernel and file images will have configuration, builder, and date information embedded in the name. For example, lk_ee-0412011004.bin is a Linux kernel compiled by a user with an id beginning in ee on 2004, December 1 at 10:03. They will be found in the following locations:
For subsequent builds it is only necessary to run "make" which may optionally be preceded by a "make menuconfig".
The instructions for changing the build configuration options are available here.
