Which uboot to use


#1

It seems that there is some divergence between uboot version used by ubuntu release and openwrt release

  1. SRC - Openwrt release pulls this uboot: https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-R2-LEDE-Uboot.git

  2. SRC - While ubuntu image seems to use: https://github.com/BPI-SINOVOIP/BPI-R2-bsp

Which is the most current one? I am using openwrt but because the openwrt build uses squashfs I can’t use that because of the squashfs errors. So I am finding myself adding code to SRC 1 to give it functionality of SRC 2

Can someone clarify why the divergence?

Thanks

Hi Jack-

thanks for your response, yes I understand that one is for ubuntu and other is for openwrt. What I am wondering is why are the code changes not in a single repository. As in why is the single uboot repository made to work with both ubuntu and openwrt.

Thanks
