Dear All;

I have a digital satellite receiver (named Chipbox), which uses linux kernel

Main chipset name is Celestial CSM1203 ( It is ARM926EJ-S core).

The original kernel source (and all other sources) can be downloaded here:

I would like to add some functionality (Such as CIFS, USB WIFI...) to my STB. In order to do that, I need to cross compile new kernel.

However, the chipset provider ( Celestial) does not provide a new kernel to do this. They just compiled for about 5-6 years ago, and they didn't do a new kernel from that time.

So, I need your helps:

1) Celestial has done a lot of modifications on the original source ( drivers, headers, definitions...) All these changes can be seen by using MELD tool.

2) In order to have a new kernel ( Such as which can be running on my chipbox, what are the steps should be done one by one?

Can you please explain for a newbie please?

Best Regards
