    Test Linux Kernel


    Hello Guys

    How can i test do a test on linux kernel?
    I downloaded the source code for the Linux Kernel 2.6.39 from
    kernel website.
    I have to test the above version as it needs to get ported to beagle board.

    Thanks in advance

    LTP ( Linux Test Project ) is a test suite where we can test kernel , but here I need to know "how to add.modify the path to the linux kernel"?

    As far as I can see, ltp doesnt need the kernel files, but a running kernel.

    You need to configure, compile and install a kernel of your choice.
    Then reboot to that kernel and run ltp.
    Repeat for any change or new kernel.

    1. What are you hoping to test on?
    2. What are you running on the Beagleboard, Angstrom or Ubuntu.
    3. If you are cross compiling for Beagleboard you'd need a special tools from codesourcery.com and it's a more complex task than building on x86. Also building a kernel for Ubuntu is a bit complex compared to openSUSE.
    4. The Angstrom narcissus distribution is already at 2.6.39.
    If you are familiar with Ubuntu, I'd recommend ubuntu-natty. It's Ubuntu and has all the Ubuntu packages.
    I switched from Angstrom to Ubuntu for that reason and I'm running a 3.0.0-rc6 kernel, soon to upgrade to 3.0.0-rc7 - all available as stock kernels.
    root@g3vbv:~# uname -a
    Linux g3vbv 3.0.0-rc6-d1 #1 SMP Wed Jul 6 15:33:56 UTC 2011 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux

    If you've never built and installed a kernel, I recommend doing some background reading, Kernel-HOWTO, etc.
