The Linux kernel source lands in the Android SDK.


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

Stay tuned.

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

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.?

are you compiling mainline or the provided one?




if mainline i might check the make file in the pie folder, i think a makefile flag is what causes that




either - pic or -lresolv option







if the provided 3.10 one you might not have all the build dependencies installed, make sure you do.

Hi,


thanks for your quick reply.

I am trying to compile the official one from the firefly git, so the 3.10.


It's weird because on Ubuntu I can compile it and apparently I have same dependencies. But maybe I am wrong and missing something in Debian. At the moment I compiled the kernel in Ubuntu and prepared the rootfs in debian.... I need to check if the rootfs is working.


One other thing... the WIki is saying to change the parameter to select the correct partition... is this considered the .config file?


Thanks!

reason ubuntu will and plain debian wont is definitely a dependency issue. The dependencies are similar but there are things installed by default on ubuntu that arent on plain debian so i would research what the missing dependencies are.




as for the wiki info im not sure, wish i could help more there?
