Sure but the new kernel has some missing stuff and several regressions, and there is no one wanting to work on these. Properly maintaining a kernel is almost a full time job really, and it's a bit too much for me with unrelated day job. Yeah maybe I could somehow manage it (like I did with current .27 kernel over the years) but would have to kill all my 'fun' projects for this. Still I'll be trying to get something for upcoming major firmware update (Y*).torpor said:i) Regardless of this issue, isn't it good to move to the new kernel?
TI only provides 'raw' software, it's still up to the integrator (which is unfortunate enough to be me) to set things up correctly. And if something goes wrong, something won't work, we are on our own because this is too small project (not enough parts sold) for TI to provide support.fusion_power said:Sorry, I just don't understand much of this technical stuff, so I had to ask. ^^"notaz said:I'm tired repeating this, but doing it once more: the real problem is not the old kernel but the DSP framework requirements to reserve RAM (so that Linux can't use it) and no one capable doing such work wanting to get the damn thing working.
And actualy it should be the Job of TI/SGX and/or Angstrom devs to implement such basic stuff, not yours. Nobody should release a Chipset without full implemented and working Feature Support in Software. At least they have to give others the Source Code if they are not able to do it right themselves.
This is the point that makes me sad and not your very valuable work onto fixing all the stuff, others made wrong. ^^
