Providing kernel headers
Prev Bering-uClibc 6.x - Developer Guide Next

Building the kernel headers tarball is different from building all other Packages.

The kernel headers are needed to build the toolchain and can be found in repo/toolchain. To create the tarball run in your buidtool root:

./ headers linux 
cd headers/include
tar cvfJ  ../../repo/toolchain/linux-headers.tar.xz headers/include/

Please note, that toolchains can support different kernel versions, which may be useful especially in transitions to a newer versions, where not all toolchains will be supported immediately. It is adviced to keep the kernel headers for the oldest kernel a toolchain uses.
