Is anyone working on bulidroot support? (https://buildroot.org/) it seems that should be more or less straight forward. But I’ve had problems compiling the (mainline) kernel for R2 so far. As soon as I can get that working, I can give that a try, but it would be great to know if there’s someone else working on this as well.
Which kernel do you try to compile? 4.14? You find infos on how to build it in my wiki http://www.fw-web.de/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=en/bpi-r2/
If there any problems,feel free to contact me
but i’ve nothing done with buildroot
I was able to successfully build the kernel, but it won’t start. I was looking to understand how to create an image from scratch, that’s why I was looking into buildroot.
you use build.sh-script from my page? or do manually? if manually you must have set DTB_APPEND-option in kernel, append it to zImage and then run mkimage
cat arch/arm/boot/zImage arch/arm/boot/dts/mt7623n-bananapi-bpi-r2.dtb > arch/arm/boot/zImage-dtb mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel -C none -a 80008000 -e 80008000 -n "Linux Kernel 4.14" -d arch/arm/boot/zImage-dtb ./uImage
else it won’t boot…you can try one of my kernels to test booting…please use debug-uart, to see what happens
