To build a kernel for the Micromint Electrum you need a compatible ARM toolchain. Please remember to use the desired board config file and rebuild the kernel modules when you build a new kernel. These commands will build a kernel and its modules using the sources from the wiki:

 tar xJf linux-3.2.76-1-at91.tar.xz
 make kernel

To use the default board config, don't make any changes on menuconfig and just select exit. After a successful build the resulting kernel and modules should be in arch/arm/boot and boot/lib respectively. Once you are able to build a working kernel with the default config, then implement any config and source code changes required by your project.
