Adafruit’s Raspberry Pi Kernel-o-Matic #raspberrypi #piday

kernel

We have a new tool for all of your Raspberry Pi kernel compiling needs! The Adafruit Kernel-o-Matic makes it easy to cross-compile Raspberry Pi kernels from any Windows, Mac, or Linux computer.

If you’re ever needed to compile the Linux Kernel on a Raspberry Pi, you’ve probably noticed that it takes a long time. We sure have.

If you have a desktop computer or a laptop with decent hardware specs, it seems like there ought to be an easy way to use all that processing power to generate a new kernel for your Pi, but it can be tricky to figure out the specifics. Enter the Adafruit Pi Kernel-o-Matic, which uses Vagrant to run a virtual machine pre-configured for compiling kernels and produces a package suitable for installation on a Raspbian machine.
