(06:45:45 AM) davygravy: lyakh: hi, wondering if you might know how to help andre out w/ this kernel/uboot problem: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16356&start=15
(06:50:12 AM) lyakh: davygravy: which one? the thread is long with many stages. where exactly is the current problem described?
(06:51:50 AM) davygravy: sorry, right at the end - he's trying to make & boot a uImage for an older kernel
(06:53:21 AM) lyakh: davygravy: does booting a newer kernel with .dtb work for him?
(06:56:14 AM) davygravy: no sure - he says that he can boot the universal kernel (hg + ls1) ... I _think_ those all use a dtb file ...
(06:58:10 AM) lyakh: davygravy: in principle, uboot doesn't care. it just prepares and provides a dtb. If the kernel doesn't need it, it doesn't use it. So, I would try to use _exactly_ the same procedure as with a newer kernel, i.e., use and specify the same .dtb, but just use the old kernel
(07:00:01 AM) davygravy: lyakh: thanks, I'll pass this on to him
(07:00:06 AM) lyakh: np
andre, I'll also ask timtimred.
if push come to shove I'll try to build your kernel in bitbake and see if I can get it to work. It only takes about 20 min to build in OE.
