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...

See: http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/base/embedded/handbook/index.xml?part=1&chap=4#doc_chap1

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 https://github.com/SolidRun/u-boot. 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 https://github.com/SolidRun/u-boot 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)
