Where can i get the kernel 2.6.14 for at91rm9200?
Is it necessary to build by myself?

Do you need stable 2.6.15 instead? I got it from www.kernel.org, then applied patch 2.6.15 from maxim.org.za.

Below is a talk to the patch keeper - andrew@sanpeople.com:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Download kernel 2.6.15 from www.kernel.org.
Download just the 2.6.15 patch from maxim.org.za, and apply it.

(You don't need to apply all the maxim.org.za patches, just the one that
matches your kernel version)

Yes.

Everything that is not yet in the kernel.org kernel.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, I did it, the patch itself is not runt, but the result kernel won't start
(The board is OK, I had started 2.6.10 on it).
I've also heard the version 2.6.12 won't work, while 2.6.11 does.
Will you try this 2.6.15.6? If you succeed, please share.

Please let me know which compiler version tool chain to be used to compiler 2.6.15 kernel fro AT91RM9200. Give the links from where we can download it.

I use gcc-3.4.3 glibc-2.3.4 binuitls-2.15.96 to build cross-compile toolchain,then I got a rannable kernel.

For at91rm9200dk, there's dedicated site - maxim.org.za.

First I ran full installation script from there - buildchain.sh. It loads cross-compiler (arm-gcc 3.4.4) and other cross-tools' sources, then compile them (which would be a lot of pain without the script).

Then I downloaded kernel 2.6.15.6 from www.kernel.org, applied a single patch 2.6.15-patch (for at91rm9200dk) from maxim.org.za, edited src/Makefile like
...
ARCH = arm
CROSS_COMPILE = arm-unknown-linux-gnu-
...

and made.

Caution:
If you're using u-boot, there's a slight bug in the latest u-boot 1.1.4, which although stops the kernel 2.6.15.6 at the beginning. (Other kernels start.)

two questions:
I use gcc-3.4.3 glibc-2.3.4 binuitls-2.15.96 to build cross-compile toolchain,then I got a rannable kernel.
the toolchain needs to specify the kernel headers, are you using the kernel-header files directly? (since kernel-libc-header is not available for 2.6.15 yet)

If you're using u-boot, there's a slight bug in the latest u-boot 1.1.4, which although stops the kernel 2.6.15.6 at the beginning. (Other kernels start.)
what is the bug then? I got something like
'uncompress kernel ...... done, booting kernel' (hung)
is this it?
