I started to add olinuxino board support to Buildroot (http://buildroot.uclibc.org/ (http://buildroot.uclibc.org/)), if anybody is interested it's available here: https://gitorious.org/buildroot-olinuxino/buildroot-olinuxino (https://gitorious.org/buildroot-olinuxino/buildroot-olinuxino).
To build a boot and a base rootfs image, clone the git repo, and just follow the instructions listed in the board/olinuxino/olinuxino-maxi/readme.txt (online available here: https://gitorious.org/buildroot-olinuxino/buildroot-olinuxino/blobs/master/board/olinuxino/olinuxino-maxi/readme.txt)
Any feedback is welcome, as i still need to test everything, but so far it seems everything works well with the built image.
It uses 22.214.171.124 kernel, but it would be nice to use the current mainline kernel of course. How is the situation now, is there a patchset to 3.6 or 3.7 which makes everything working on the board? All what i found is from August, and it seems they had some issues with the USB devices...
Hi, i was configuring buildroot myself when i found this post.
im cloning and compiling atm.
ill let you know how things go.
I've got it running with the 3.6 kernel without major issues. Network and all.
How did you define your /dev directory ? Do you use the static tables, any hints on configuring it ?
I have some ACM devices, that are currently not working if I plug them in, but I'm assuming this is because the nodes are not available in /dev yet (ttyACM0 etc)
in the linked config i used enabled udev, i didn't try it with ACM devices, but it should work...i'll try then the 3.6 kernel, did you use any patches, or just the mainline vanilla?
There were 3 patches to the freescale's mainline. These instructions:
I'll take a look at your config, thanks
Unfortunately i couldn't make the sound working with the above linked patches...
anybody else made the sound working with this kernel version:
Needed to port old drivers on new kernel. This part still missing.
ah, i see, let me know if any testing resources needed ;)
