Experimental Openembedded image for A10
As discussed in another thread, i created a meta layer for openembedded with u-boot and kernel for allwinner a10 boards:
Everything went smoothly and i successfully built a base console image, with kernel and u-boot. I just had to make a small patch for the kernel, gcc was complaining about some inline functions.
I have no A10 hardware so i can't test it, i uploaded the rootfs, kernel and u-boot in the repository download section.
It's possibile that it will not work very well because i forgot to use the proper libc kernel headers, but it should boot and you will be able to play with it anyway. A fix will come later.
Just as a reference:
BB_VERSION = "1.15.2" TARGET_ARCH = "arm" TARGET_OS = "linux-gnueabi" MACHINE = "allwinner-a10" DISTRO_VERSION = "oe-core.0" TUNE_FEATURES = "armv7a vfp neon cortexa8" TARGET_FPU = "vfp-neon" meta meta-allwinner = "master:e3113827810e98eb1b012f0b280fb917199704c1" meta-oe = "master:fb360b53a5f9715320fe161637e4b46737f52d8f"
(i don't know why it reports meta-allwinner with git information, it was still not a git repository when i built the image...).
If it fries your A10 don't blame me :D
