as a newbie to linux on ARMs I learned a lot about the architecture of raspberrypi over the last few weeks and I'm really looking forward to my first board.
While waiting for the board I tried to compile a kernel today and prepare an image. My plan is to start with the "official" kernel from kernel.org, patch it and crosscompile it (all on my Ubuntu system).
I got the kernel sources and found a patch for raspberrypi on github. So I copied them viagit clone https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/ke ... stable.git
git clone https://github.com/simoncadman/Raspberr ... -Patch.git However, when I try to patch the kernel, I get various messages on offsets (seems to be OK) and various
eerrors. I also get the message that a reversed (or previously applied) patch has been detected.So here are my question: Is anybody aware of the version of the official kernel that this patch applies to?Are there other places for patches that I should consider and are there any plans to maintain a kind of official patch for rasperrypi that can be applied to the official kernel? Thanks a lot in advanceHal
