Build Guide


This page is for experienced Linux users. If you are not familiar with building software components using autotools, we recommend that you use a pre-compiled and tested version available on your current distro.

Building Kernel

Please refer to detailed instruction on kernel building.

The only exception is that you should use drm-tip repository. The following is a short example to get you started:

git clone git://

cd drm-tip

cp /boot/config-`uname -r`* .config
# or, depending on your distribution
gunzip -c /proc/config.gz > .config

make olddefconfig


sudo make modules_install

sudo make install

Building User Space Components

Please refer to the README files available inside each of the user space components in order to get the most updated building instructions for that code.
