The goal is to add support for Zoom36x in Ansgtrom.

Contents

Add Zoom36x Support to Angstrom

Add Machine OMAPZoom36x

References from OE:

http://docs.openembedded.org/usermanual/usermanual.html#commonuse_new_machine

http://wiki.openembedded.net/index.php/Adding_a_new_Machine

To be able to build for a specific device, OpenEmbedded has to know it. So machine config file need to be written. Machine configs are stored in /conf/machine/ directory.

For Zoom36x, added

${OEHOME}/openembedded/conf/machine/omapzoom36x.conf

'Note: SERIAL_CONSOLE = "115200 ttyS3" has to be modified to "ttyS0" for L23.i3.4 and beyond

Other update for Angstrom:

 In {OEHOME}/openembedded/contrib/angstrom/sort.sh, update "armv7a") machines="omapzoom36x"

Add kernel support

LO sync kernel based on 2.6.32

1. Kernel Recipe to be added/updated in ${OEHOME}/openembedded/recipes/linux

Update "linux-omap-zoomsync_2.6.32.bb" to include OMAPZoom36x

2. Add kernel defconfig

Create a "machine" folder as "omapzoom36x" in "linux-omap-zoomsync-2.6.32" folder

Copy contents of 'omap_zoom3_defconfig' to

${OEHOME}/openembedded/recipes/linux/linux-omap-zoomsync-2.6.32/omapzoom36x/defconfig

LO sync kernel based on 2.6.33

1. Kernel Recipe to be added/updated in ${OEHOME}/openembedded/recipes/linux

Create "linux-omap-zoomsync_2.6.33.bb" if file doesn't exist

2. Add kernel defconfig

Create "linux-omap-zoomsync-2.6.33" folder if it doesn't exist. You may have to create "linux-omap-2.6.33" folder too

For Zoom36x, copy contents of 'omap_zoom3_defconfig' to

${OEHOME}/openembedded/recipes/linux/linux-omap-zoomsync-2.6.33/omapzoom36x/defconfig


3. Other .bb files where the machine support need to be added

Add COMPATIBLE_MACHINE = "omapzoom36x" in linux-omap_2.6.32.bb, linux-omap_git.bb

Note Machine names are separated by |

Add U-boot support

Update (add omapzoom36x) u-boot_git.bb in ${OEHOME}/openembedded/recipes/u-boot folder

Add X-loader support

Update (add omapzoom36x) x-load_git.bb in ${OEHOME}/openembedded/recipes/x-load folder


Files in Question from community release
