While it may be possible to do this, I am not sure that it is the best idea. Kernels like to have kernel shipped modules compiled with the same compiler.cyrus007 wrote:From the perspective of end users, without messing with the gar build system or the existing rootfs system, is there a way to add kernel modules ? I know we can add applications/packages using the EXTRAS_URL method and I wanted to see if we can extend that functionality to custom kernel drivers (the rootfs being a read-only fs). That way I can get just the .config, add my extra modules and move those modules only.
Are the certain kernel shipped modules that you need? If so, it is easy to add them to the official release. Already, we have added kernel modules to support extrenal USB DVD drives and certain CD-ROM/DVD file formats.
