Dear Robert,

> Being a newbie to ELDK, sorry for some basic questions.

You are welcome - asking questions is what this mailing list is for.

> Now I am trying to figure out how to put my own kernel  (2.6.24 + RT-patch +

You just use it. The Linux kernel is just one building block and  is
pretty much independent of everything else.

> Most probably, I need to rebuild all from scratch.

No! You don't.

Just install your own kernel tree in any directory you like
(typically somewhere in your $HOME), and use the ELDK to configure and
build it.

There are NO changes needed to do that - neither to the ELDK nor to
your kernel tree.

> What are my steps to re-build ELDK-4.2 with my custom kernel?

You don't have to do that. Actually, you don't want to do that either :-)

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk
