I compile the Linux Kernel for the TS-7400 on a faster Intel based Linux workstation. To do so I use a cross toochain downloaded from the Technologic Systems ftp site. Once the kernel is compiled I “dd” it over to the SD card just like in the original SD card setup. The toolchain libraries must match the libraries of your system. Below are the links to the tool chain and the kernel I use.
Additionally I applied two patches to the Kernel that came from the
Yahoo TS-7000 group. Without these patches
NTPD will only achieve millisecond accuracy.
