Building 2.6.39-rc1 or -rc3 is basically the same as [[Panda_How_to_kernel_2_6_38|How to build 2.6.38 kernel]], but of course you need the rc1/3 sources. The omap2plus_defconfig works, but does not enable anything interesting. [[Media:config.2.6.39-rc1|config.2.6.39-rc1]] enables USB, its' ethernet adapter, and wl12xx support. Or [[Media:config.2.6.39-rc3.1|config.2.6.39-rc3.1]] for -rc3. [[Media:config.2.6.39-rc1.2|config.2.6.39-rc1.2]] enables USB, it's ethernet adapter, wl12xx support, and dvi support, but only for -rc1 for the moment. However using that config requires that the kernel sources be patched with [[Media:0001-omap4-pandaboard-fix-dvi-support.patch|0001-omap4-pandaboard-fix-dvi-support.patch]] The patch also provices panda_dvi_defconfig which just enables dvi.

* Update 5/9/2011 A newer version is available from: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git which includes a Bluetooth init script, which contains binary patches to the firmware that resides in ROM.

 +
* The firmware and wl1271 hardware is the same as on the PandaBoard, but there is no support in /arch/arm/mach-omap2/board-omap4panda.c for the gpio's that control BT_EN (GPIO46) or BT_WAKEUP (GPIO49), as well as the bt audio interface to MCBSP1. In addition, the latest Bluez (4.93) source for hidattach_ti.c still assumes that the firmware (and bt init script) are in /lib/firmware/ rather than in /lib/firmware/ti-connectivity/. The new firmware does work for wlan.

Introduction

The merge window has closed and 2.6.39-rc1 has been released, There are many Pandaboard related changes, including HDMI, DVI and wl21xx support.

-rc1

* hdmi & dvi are broken due to some dss clocking issues, see: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/674062/ for details, a fix for dvi is available, see below.
* abe sound is not supported.
* Dave Anders patch to not configure the unused power regulators of VUSIM and VAUX1 is included.
* wl12xx support is working to the extent that one can associate with an access point, get an IP address and ping out to the internet.

-rc2

* Neither OMAP nor PandaBoaqrd changes, no other changes to wlan, dvi or hdmi code, so stay tuned for rc-3 in about a week or so.

-rc3

* Rebooting is broken (there was a post suggesting that it was broken in -rc2 as well) follow
this thread for more info: http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-omap/msg49746.html.
** a simple fix is to turn off OMAP2 support, which is done in the .config below for -rc3.
* What at first looked like interesting changes to /arch/arm/mach-omap2/ /drivers/net/wireless/wl12xx/ /drivers/video/omap2/dss/

-rc5

* Neither OMAP nor PandaBoaqrd changes, no other changes to wlan, dvi or hdmi code,

Wlan

The proper firmware for wl12xx support is available from: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/romieu/linux-firmware.git, just clone that repository and copy the ti-connectivity directory to /lib/firmare/.

Building

Building 2.6.39-rc1, -rc3, -rc5, or -rc6 is basically the same as How to build 2.6.38 kernel, but of course you need the rc1/3/5/6 sources. The omap2plus_defconfig works, but does not enable anything interesting. config.2.6.39-rc1 enables USB, its' ethernet adapter, and wl12xx support. Or config.2.6.39-rc3.1 for -rc3. config.2.6.39-rc1.2 enables USB, it's ethernet adapter, wl12xx support, and dvi support, for -rc3 use config.2.6.39-rc3.3, config.2.6.39-rc5.1 for -rc5 and config.2.6.39-rc6.1 for -rc6. However using either of those configs requires that the kernel sources be patched with 0001-omap4-pandaboard-fix-dvi-support.patch The patch also provices panda_dvi_defconfig which just enables dvi. This patch applies to both -rc1, -rc3, -rc5 and -rc6.

DVI Patch

Apply it like so: (from inside the kernel sources directory)

patch -p1 < 0001-omap4-pandaboard-fix-dvi-support.patch

Then use either of the above configs or

make ARCH=arm omap2plus_defconfig
        or
make ARCH=arm panda_dvi_defconfig

Then compile with

make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=Path_to_your/arm-2009q3/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi- uImage
     or
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=Path_to_your/arm-2010q1/bin/arm-none-linux-gnueabi- uImage



i2c character device driver

Ever since 2.6.38, the i2c character device driver support from user space has been broken for OMAP44xx.
* A fix has been submitted for the linux-omap-2.6 branch, but it may be a while till it gets into an -rcx.
See http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/tmlind/linux-omap-2.6.git;a=commit;h=39fe1a6fafe1e85c183379af9f3ceda7cd24bd65 for the commit.
* A quick fix for this issue is available File:Omap44xx-i2c-fix.patch

I2C Patch

Apply it like so: (from inside the kernel sources directory)

patch -p1 < Omap44xx-i2c-fix.patch

Then compile as above.


Testing

After booting run fbtest to see a nice test pattern from the dvi port.

Fbtest.jpg

Then you can run i2cdetect and the results should look like this:

# i2cdetect -y -r 1
    0  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  a  b  c  d  e  f
