APQ8060A Linux upstream work
This documentation is for folks who who want to work on ramping up linux upstream development based on APQ8060A. You'll need am armel toolchain installed. Below are documentation for Linux distributions.
Getting gcc-armel on Debian
Add this to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://www.emdebian.org/debian testing main
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gcc-4.4-base-armel-cross
Add to your .bashrc:
export CROSS_COMPILE=/usr/bin/arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc-4.4 <nowiki> It would also help if you have a simple script called '''make-arm''' in your PATH somewhere that does this: <nowiki> make ARCH=arm O=../kobj $@
Get the code
As it stands this code is available from codeaurora and the master branch has issues to clone so just clone the msm-3.4 branch:
git clone git://codeaurora.org/quic/la/kernel/msm.git msm-3.4
mkdir kobj cp arch/arm/configs/msm_defconfig kobj/.config make-arm menuconfig make-arm -j 4
Generating initial boot image
The APQ8060A will have shipped with an Android boot loader so you need to first get the kernel you built into a format it will like. This section will be expanded soon.
