Amlogic S905w TV box - recompile kernel



Recommended Posts

Recenly I successfully installed Armbian_20.10_Arm-64_bionic_current_5.9.0.img.xz created by balbes150 (may thanks to him) on microSD in my x96 mini Amlogic S905w tvbox. I need to enable option CONFIG_BINFMT_MISC in kernel

#  uname -a
Linux arm-64 5.9.0-arm-64 #20.10 SMP PREEMPT Wed Oct 14 12:04:42 MSK 2020 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

When I tried steps from this link

on my Ubuntu Focal 20.04 x64  build environment I see only these possible variants according to Amlogic SoC:

- lepotato Amlogic S905x quad core 2Gb RAM SoC eMMC;

- lafrite Amlogic S805x quad core 1Gb RAM SoC eMMC;

- nanopik2-s905          Amlogic S905 K2 quad core 2GB RAM SoC WiFi eMMC;

- odroidc2               Amlogic S905 C2 quad core 2GB RAM SoC GBE;

- odroidc4               Amlogic S905X3 quad core 4GB RAM SoC eMMC GBE USB3 SPI;

- odroidhc4              Amlogic S905X3 quad core 4GB RAM SoC GBE USB3 SPI 2 x SATA;

- odroidn2               Amlogic S922X hexa core 2GB/4GB RAM SoC 1.8-2.4Ghz eMMC GBE USB3 SPI RTC.


So actually I'm not sure if I need to use a mentioned tutorial with running $ sudo ./

Maybe exists another proper way to recompile my current kernel on tvbox?

Not an official Armbian image, therefore it is most likely that official way will not work.

Ask the author of your 3rd party image for the kernel sources.
