Hi,

where can I get the current kernel sources with config for Pyra to build it on my own?
I like to add tons of modules, so that I can connect all kind of USB stuff :~)
Mainly: USB wifi and ethernet adaptors, because wifi is pretty broken on "my" prototype.

TIA!

PS: I would ask in IRC, but I my XMPP gateway server can't connect freenode today :~(

Thanks, cloned it! (Still running 4.10 here, however.)

And you have to use the letux_defconfig or letux_lpae_defconfig .
Thanks, found it (./arch/arm/configs/letux_lpae_defconfig).

Yes, but only for a short time.

SneHebNor is not a true Seb, so they don't get full access to a prototype. However, I have misspelled their name as 'Seb' in the past, so they're at least a partial Seb so permitted to partial access.

Either that or they live close to someone with a prototype, and have been able to borrow it.

No, he's visiting the DebConf in Montreal and has a prototype with him there.

So if anyone is there, you can probably meet ul.

Oh!, Montreal is less than a two hour drive for me.

NOTE: in letux-4.13-rc kernels the TILER patches had to be removed because they are no longer compatible (and I have no idea how to make them compatible). So there is no screen rotation. letux-4.12.x is quite stable.
All details about the kernel can be found here: http://projects.goldelico.com/p/gta04-kernel/
And because people regularly ask: booting can be made much faster by configuring more modules into the kernel uImage/zImage. Currently almost everything is dynamically loaded on demand from /lib/modules to keep the uImage small.
So some optimized Pyra kernel should get its own defconfig.
