How to make mkimage?

1. I am trying to build the kernel for Sheeva Plug with iSCSI.

2. Scratchbox does not compile the kernel with any toolchain I have been able to find or to make.

3. The kernel compiles fine outside of Scratchbox using the CROSS_COMPILE option, but the iSCSI (from SourceForge) has problems outside of Scratchbox. So I decided a good option would be to compile the kernel native on the Plug and add iSCSI native on the Plug.

4. When I try to build the kernel native on the Plug, the "make ARCH=arm uImage" runs, but ends without generating uImage because of a missing mkimage. I have tried a number of attempts to make a suitable mkimage, unsuccessfully.

Can anyone suggest a way to get the mkimage?

mkimage is part of u-boot sources.

You can also download it from here:

If you don't feel like going through the process of compiling your own mkimage, you can download the one I've already made here. http://computingplugs.com/files/mkimage.bz2
