And created a final boot-410c.img file just as it says there, now, i’m not sure how do i boot this kernel on the board without using the fastboot method. I need to use an SD Card.. i haven’t found any documentation whatsoever regarding this issue.
You mean you are booting your DB410C from the SD card?
That’s fairly easy…
If you put the SD card in your host PC then you can use fdisk to show
the partition table on the SD card.
Look for a boot partition (make sure you are looking at the SD card, not
the PC’s hard disc) and note its number.
Then is should be a matter of:
dd if=boot-410c.img of=/dev/sd
I have also compiled the modules(make modules with the distro.config as the configuration). I’m not sure replacing them in /lib/modules is a good idea, just in case i mess up the compiled kernel i do want to be able to boot with the older one…
You can always rename /lib/modules if you want to… but note that the
instructions about will have overwritten the kernel anyway (although you
can recover it by using dd to copy in the original kernel image).
Also I think that most features will still work even with the kernel
modules missing (IIRC the kernel for DB410C is configured so that
modules are mostly used for hotplugable drivers such as USB rather than
for core features).
