Linux Kernel on Development Board


Hello all, recently I was asked the following questions in an interview :

1) How will you proceed if the kernel source code that you downloaded does not support your board? What are the steps you will take?

2) Write all the directories in linux that will be visible to you on your system and the directories of your kernel source code that you have downloaded. Differentiate between both.

Anyone have got any idea ?
