2009-10-27 05:41:47     Linux kernel in uClinux-dist - why?

Hello!

 

 

I have Acvilon BF561 board. It's support added in trunk and working fine:

 

 

  blackfin.uclinux.org/git/?p=readonly-mirrors/linux-kernel.git;a=commit;h=f9386fed352dfccd465299279c7d19961d407a10

 

 

 

My question is... I see Linux kernel sources in uClinux-dist? What purpose of this kernel? This kernel do not have support of my board...

the kernel and dist are shipped together because the combined build system makes producing complete images a lot easier

 

you're free to build the kernel all by yourself, or replace the bundled linux-2.6.x kernel dir with any other version.

Thanks ^_^ I'm always building kernel by myself. BTW, can I point uClinux-dist to different kernel dir? Without any copy operations?
