BBB: Building and Rebuilding for arm-arch!


I know it is too late to reply. I am not expecting miracles since this is complicated and comes w/ years of experience from sources around the net, u-boot, and how u-boot signifies itself of am335x_evm_defconfig.

“I am on to something,” as usual but w/out working order, I am bit slow to duplicate for now.

Okay so!

I get a version of a cross-compiler (GCC), u-boot (u-boot), and a kernel set up (Linux).

I am testing now w/out any help. This is why I am reaching out:


The m-tune= ‘switch’ seems to want something outside of what is available, i.e. generic-armv7-a.

Anyway, I am sure someone is familiar w/ this issue as of the current, bleeding edge u-boot being shipped these days, along w/ an updated kernel, and no prior experience in building.


P.S. I am following along in your, whomever, eewiki Pages for the BBB. They seem very workable and well thought out but when I exchange out what you have produced w/ a new Kernel or u-boot version, I run into errors. Is this normal?

If you’d like assistance, it is best to post your actual build error. That way we can tell you exactly what went wrong…

Yes sir…I will get to it again soon and then we can proceed.


P.S. Thank you!

@RobertCNelson ,

Sir…please forgive me. The uboot parameter that turns into the error no longer is present. I just built u-boot on master and it worked this time. I am not sure exactly what could have transpired between then and now but it works!


P.S. Thank you for taking time out to try to help when things already work.
