I was wondering if people could review my attempt at adding ARM support
to openSUSE's Kernel, please? I'm not professing to be an expert or
anything, but I think I've listened to the help and advice that I've
received - thanks very much for all the help.
I didn't create the .configs by hand as I genuinely don't
know/understand the options to make valid choices. I did however
"borrow" them from other distros, whether that's a good idea or not I
can't say. The imx.conf is from Ubuntu, whilst the omap.conf,
tegra.conf and generic.conf are from Fedora.
I am open to being skooled, but try and be gentle please :-) My next
step is to try and workout how to get perl-Bootloader to support ARM
At first glance, this looks fine to me, nice job.
Thanks, although I think I noticed a formating issue with the configs (I
need to remove the .config from the file names)
What's the generic config for, the quemu image?
Yes, mostly for that and for some automatic testing.
And I don't think that perl-Bootloader makes much
sense for ARM as you
are using uboot, right?
I wasn't sure if I needed to have perl-Bootloader as well as uboot. So
that answers that one, thanks.
Any one object to me committing this to the tree?
I think the attached patch is better, although I am having issues
actually building any of the ARM kernels. Whenever I try I end up with:
tar: config/armv7l/generic: Not found in archive
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
error: Architecture is not included: armv7l
Does this mean I need to actually have armv7l in config.conf and config/
instead of arm or in addition?
