I tried disabling the beagle board, and then I got an error something to do with overo board.


This is what I’d like to see.  Someone (Gumstix?) with a build source that’s been tested, it builds, it works.  And then put it someplace where it doesn’t get touched and it just works.  So here is the 2.6.38 source and it’s been tested and frozen in this release.  And here’s the 3.2 source and it’s been tested and frozen in this release.  And here’s the latest and greatest but no guarantees.  Same applies to mlo and uboot.   I don’t know the best way to do this.  A README file?  Is this something that’s possible to document in git?


I’m trying to document the process of building a complete system from scratch without oe.  The process isn’t that hard, but there needs to be reliable source somewhere.

Oh PS I simply disabled beagle board in the .config file (I only build for Gumstix and Pandboard) which is a quick work around.

Sorry BeagleBoard people!

Dan,  Good catch - I too saw that problem in the 3.2 branch and was going to post it, but then I backed down to 2.6.38 for Xenomai which biulds fine... and promptly forgot about it!

To be helpful to the list you'd say WHY he'd care about floating performance. What build process use it, what is the impact of not doing so
eg (thought example)
if it takes 5 min longer to build using ubuntu tools but building your own toolchain takes 4 hours then you'd be laughing.

The topic is very interesting, but having BS cloud the picture is not at all helpful
(Not asserting that any BS exists :-)
