We're getting close to getting BeagleBone support in the mainline [http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git Linux kernel] in good shape, but we still have quite a ways to go. By publishing the process I'm using for kernel testing, I'm hopeful others can step in and help improve the state of the kernel by reporting issues, reviewing patches and submitting both feature and bug fix patches to the appropriate staging trees.

Background

We're getting close to getting BeagleBone support in the mainline Linux kernel in good shape, but we still have quite a ways to go. By publishing the process I'm using for kernel testing, I'm hopeful others can step in and help improve the state of the kernel by reporting issues, reviewing patches and submitting both feature and bug fix patches to the appropriate staging trees.

Known issues with test framework

  • Buildroot doesn't appear to currently support hard-float for nodejs nor hardware floating point for the soft-float EABI.
