Thanks! How long/hard it may take to upgrade kernel to 3.17/3.18 version?

The Linux kernel source lands in the Android SDK.


We're extracting the kernel source from Android SDK for convenient retrievement.

Stay tuned.

Hi kamikaze,

there are some people already busy with porting mainline kernel for a long time. And recently Rockchip people are supporting this. As a result the RK3 series of SOCs do at least boot into recent mainline. Even first approaches to video support are made and the work is still in progress.

I do use a 3.16 mainline kernel on a RK3188?board with ubuntu server. After some hand tuning it works quite good.?

to install the kernel you can use rkflashkit like the wiki says and you will need the kernel.img and resource.img that are compiled in the kernel folder at the top of the kernel tree, flash them to their respective locations using rkflashkit and you should be good to go.




any particular reason you wish to use plain debian vs ubuntu? if it has to do with not using unity you can always install ubuntu gnome which is what i use. Im currently on ubuntu gnome 14.04 with pf kernel, or you can also use linux mint which i hear is good also.

Reason to use Debian: ethics + I am using it as server. So don't need any Desktop



But we are OT.




For the kernel I still have some doubts about the parameter file and how to have it matching with the correspondant parameter in kernel config

I am trying to compile the kernel from the git with my debian box but I have this error:

GEN ? ? drivers/video/rockchip/screen/lcd.h

LINK ? ?vmlinux

LD ? ? ?vmlinux.o

MODPOST vmlinux.o

OBJCOPY pie/pie_stage1.o

LD ? ? ?pie/pie_stage2.o

built in linker script:165: undefined symbol `_GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_' referenced in expression

make[1]: *** [pie/pie_stage2.o] Error 1

make: *** [vmlinux] Error 2




please try default toolchain in SDK.




if you don't have SDK, you can get only toolchain by this way:?

if you're not using x86 Linux, you'll need another way...

Thank you very much Echoa.




Actually I will first figure out how to install the kernel compiled with Ubuntu.

I noticed that the parameter file reported in the WiKi is readable from rkflashkit. Unfortunately it was not clear in the Wiki that you have to compile the kernel to match what you then write in the parameter file.




If I'll figure out how to do I wil write a short guide.
