Kernel module compilation howto?

Hi everyone,

Is there any documentation on how to compile a new kernel module for the iLiad? I've downloaded the kernel sources and the ARM cross compiler from the iRex site but I don't know how to set them up so that the kernel compilation can see and use the ARM crosscompiler.

Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Nevermind, it worked, it needed to be in /usr/local/arm. I've managed to compile the kernel and additional modules. Works like a charm!

steps for installation toolchain+linux kernel src needed

I installed under Debian linux the toolchain (oe-sdk-20070222180617.tar.bz2) in / and as suggested put the linux kernel sources (linux-2.4.19-rmk7-pxa2-irex1.tar.bz2) in /usr/local/arm. I executed the script When I execute the follwoing make commands:
make irex_config
make oldconfig
make dep
I get during the make dep the following error:
debian:/usr/local/arm/linux-2.4.19-rmk7-pxa2-irex1# make dep
gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -o scripts/mkdep scripts/mkdep.c
as: unrecognised option `-Qy'
make: *** [scripts/mkdep] Error 1
What is wrong? Can anyone help me setting up the toolchain + linux kernel sources?
