Tip for reducing git clone footprint

Talk status
This discussion is done.

I use depth=1 with git to don't use all the SD card space. At the kernel compilation: dts/imx6q-cubox-i.dtb not found. I need make zImage, not just make.

To install I have use debian image, format the partion, put gentoo but kept debian kernel.

In my case, the CONFIG: EARLY_PRINTK have help me to debug some problem. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Alpha one x86 (talkcontribs) March 5, 2014‎

Building the kernel requires a cross-compile environment.

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

Unless, of course, you are executing the build on another cubox...


The git repository for u-box expects to be built with "arm-linux-gcc", catch is that crossdev doesn't understand it:

!!! WARNING - Cannot auto-configure CHOST arm-linux-gcc
!!! You should edit /usr/arm-linux-gcc/etc/portage/make.conf
!!! by hand to complete your configuration

Sans some more specific information on how to set up the cross compile environment, u-boot is broken. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lembark (talkcontribs) 16:25, August 8, 2014

SolidRun U-Boot

Talk status
This discussion is done.

The SolidRun git repo in the article hasn't been updated since 2017, and it seems SolidRun's main repo is now Does anyone know the differences between the active SolidRun U-Boot and mainline? If it's just a staging repo for changes to be merged in mainline, then I suggest that the SolidRun U-Boot instructions be removed from the article. If there are significant feature differences then I will update the repo link and instructions in the article.--BT (talk) 05:19, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi, I see it the same way. To me it looks like is now the main repo. --StefanLangenmaier (talk) 19:39, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
I have left the SolidRun U-Boot section but updated the git repo and instructions.--BT (talk) 00:50, 4 July 2019 (UTC)
