Id like to build a custom beagleboard kernel from source and run Keon's angstrom distribution on top of this custom kernel.

should i be applying koen patches to the following
git clone git://source.mvista.com/git/linux-omap-2.6.git

and if so where are those patches
or are there any better suggestions for doing this?
pete.

Above linux-omap tree is the basis for kernel we currently work on.
Once Tony (linux-omap maintainer) is back from vacation, we will send
our beagle kernel patches to the linux-omap list for inclusion. Until
then, there are several options how to get a kernel with most recent
beagle patches:

- Use koen's OE build environment and build kernel with koen's patches
within this

- Use above linux omap git an apply beagle patches manually. One list
of patches you get e.g. from koen's OE git:

http://gitweb.openembedded.net/?p=org.openembedded.dev.git;a=tree;f=packages/linux/linux-omap2-git/beagleboard;h=1dd2c87fcc48a3e2c85966a2aad9da8f4724dc6d;hb=606f7f8dac948f09abda0385b473276be7a1e4a2

- Use Steve's git clone of linux-omap

http://www.sakoman.net/cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi?p=linux-omap-2.6.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/omap3

This is a clone of source.mvista.com/git/linux-omap-2.6.git with some
beagle patches already applied.

The patches used by Koen and Steve might be different, though.

Regards

Dirk

Where is Koen's OE build environment located?

Basically, folllow :

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

with MACHINE ="beagleboard"

then bitbake console-image and beagleboard-demo-image

the results are in tmp/deploy/glibc/images/beagleboard (that might not
be quite right).

Pete,

I've finally been able to reproduce those alsa crashes. I'll be
working on finding & fixing the bug over the next day or two.

Sorry about the wasted time.

Steve

You should be able to get the patches Koen uses by using the blob &
raw links at the right side of the link I gave below
