I'm finding it a pain point to use live-build to build the .img file. I attempted to turn on --verbose from lb config, but it still gave me "internal error" which doesn't tell me much about where the error is coming from. The bottom-line is I have attempted to repeat the documented steps on your web site to build the kernel and to assemble a nand image .img file to flash and boot from. Has anyone else been successful in doing so? Conclusion: there is more effort to be done to improve the documentation so that radxa rock2_square board consumers can build their own kernels and build their own .img files. The other pain point is having grub on the radxa board. I hope an equivalent is in the works. It is difficult for me to recommend this board to others if I can't even successfully build the kernel and images for it. I imagine it is the same pain point for rock and rock pro board users as well.
I modified my /etc/apt/sources.list to point to unstable version.
deb http://ftp.ca.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.ca.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ unstable/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://apt.radxa.us/rabian-unstable/ jessie main
Here is the output for the steps to dist-upgrade to Debian version Sid(unstable):
After doing so, there are linux-image's available which I would have loved to see install successfully on the radxa board. In fact there is a kernel image 4.0.0 available for armhf. There are two available:
linux-image-4.0.0-2-armmp - Linux 4.0 for ARMv7 multiplatform compatible SoCs
linux-image-4.0.0-2-armmp-lpae - Linux 4.0 for ARMv7 multiplatform compatible SoCs supporting LPAE
linux-image-armmp - Linux for ARMv7 multiplatform compatible SoCs (meta-package)
linux-image-armmp-lpae - Linux for ARMv7 multiplatform compatible SoCs supporting LPAE (meta-package)
I tried to install the armmp version I would boot from that. It still boots from the 3.10 kernel. What can I do for force the install and correctly start this kernel on the board? Have you got a grub-like tool to recommend for the radxa rock2_square board in order to switch between different kernel versions?
