Building and Editing Linux Kernel in Eclipse for Android Rowboat

First off some references I used to complete this task. This was possibly the best so far

Some other references also helped Ref1, Ref2, Ref3, Ref4
I had following file system layout when dealing with TI_DevKit V2.2


After you have everything imported per directions the next big step is getting the .config setup. Follow the directions on the android rowboat site for doing a first build of the linux kernel in commandline before trying to build from eclipse. This helps generate the .config file. Some additional settings needed was PATH and Build Command

    Thanks for posting. I’m definitely going to give this a try. I’d also like to be able drill down through the source in eclipse, including the C code. I’m trying to learn how to add basic support for more of the hardware into Android and that would make it much easier.
