* linux: don't force IPv6 configuration in kernelGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-12-221-5/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | As per the discussion at http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/buildroot/2010-December/040030.html, remove the bits that forced the IPv6 configuration in the kernel depending on the toolchain ability to support (or not) IPv6. You may have a toolchain with IPv6 support but still don't want to have IPv6 in your kernel. The only parameters we adjust in the kernel configuration are: * ARM EABI, since we got a lot of bug reports regarding misconfigured kernel compared to the ABI used by userspace applications. * initramfs, since its contents are generated by Buildroot itself Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>

| | | | | | | | | | | linux-% shortcut targets (short for linux26-%) ignores the ouput dir $(O) so that 'make O=output.arm linux-menuconfig' is actually run in the default $(O) directory output/ and not in output.arm/.

* linux: add KERNEL_ARCH_PATH to fix x86-specific issueGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-12-171-4/+16
| | | | | | | | | | | | | Both i386 and x86_64 architectures are supported by the arch/x86 directory in the kernel. So, when we copy the kernel configuration file to arch/$(KERNEL_ARCH)/configs/, it does not work because arch/i386 and arch/x86_64 do not exist. So, we introduce KERNEL_ARCH_PATH, which is the path to the architecture specific directory in the kernel source tree.

* linux: support a space-separated list of patchesGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-12-162-16/+16
| | | | | | | | | | | | The kernel being a component that often needs a fairly important set of changes to be adapted to a particular hardware platform, having maximum flexibility on the patching process is a nice thing. Therefore, as per the discussions from the Buildroot Developer Day, we add a mechanism to apply a list of patches (that could come either from URLs, local files or local directories).

* linux: Import minimal defconfigs as defconfigsGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-12-161-1/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | Now that minimal kernel defconfigs are used in Buildroot, the problem is that copying those minimal configuration files to .config in the kernel source tree does not work, as kconfig will ask interactively what should be the value for all unspecified options. On suggestion on Sam Ravnborg, the easiest way to solve this is to import the minimal defconfig file as a defconfig inside the kernel tree (in arch/$(ARCH)/configs) and configure the kernel with it.

* linux: restore DEPMOD usageGravatar Mike Frysinger2010-12-111-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | The linux.mk rewrite lost the DEPMOD setting while installing modules which means depending on host-module-init-tools has been useless. Instead, the build system has been executing /sbin/depmod. While we're here, drop the INSTALL_MOD_PATH since LINUX26_MAKE_FLAGS already contains it.

* linux: set a few more initramfs opts for newer kernelsGravatar Mike Frysinger2010-12-111-0/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | Building with linux-2.6.36 and initramfs support causes the build to pause while it prompts for newer options (uid/gid/compression). So have the build system inject the newer options into the linux config automatically. Older versions should just ignore these.

* linux: don't force no initramfsGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-09-151-3/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | When initramfs was not selected as a root filesystem, we forcefully disabled the initramfs in the kernel configuration. However, it prevents an user from manually managing its initramfs, as we override the option he has set in his kernel configuration file. There's no real reason to do so: when initramfs is not selected as the root filesystem, just don't touch initramfs related options in the kernel configuration.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Just as we do for U-Boot, error out in the Linux kernel makefile when the defconfig name or the configuration file path are not correct. What prompted me to implement this was a report on IRC from an user using BR 2010.05 and not understand why the kernel build process was failing. It was because he just forgot to set the path of the configuration file. Of course, it doesn't catch all mistakes (like pointing to a non-existing defconfig or to a non-existing configuration file), but it at least catches basic mistakes.

* linux: add support for initramfsGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-06-221-0/+30
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | In Buildroot, the kernel is built and installed *before* the root filesystems are built. This allows the root filesystem to correctly contain the kernel modules that have been installed. However, in the initramfs case, the root filesystem is part of the kernel. Therefore, the kernel should be built *after* the root filesystem (which, in the initramfs case simply builds a text file listing all files/directories/devices/symlinks that should be part of the initramfs). However, this isn't possible as the initramfs text file would lack all kernel modules. So, the solution choosen here is to keep the normal order: kernel is built before the root filesystem is generated, and to add a little quirk to retrigger a kernel compilation after the root filesystem generation. To do so, we add a ROOTFS_$(FSTYPE)_POST_TARGETS variable to the fs/common.mk infrastructure. This allows individual filesystems to set a target name that we should depend on *after* generating the root filesystem itself (contrary to normal ROOTFS_$(FSTYPE)_DEPENDENCIES, on which we depend *before* generating the root filesystem). The initramfs code in fs/initramfs/initramfs.mk uses this to add a dependency on 'linux26-rebuild-with-initramfs'. In linux/linux.mk, we do various things : * If BR2_TARGET_ROOTFS_INITRAMFS is enabled (i.e if initramfs is enabled as a root filesystem type), then we create an empty rootfs.initramfs file (remember that at this point, the root filesystem hasn't been generated) and we adjust the kernel configuration to include an initramfs. Of course, in the initial kernel build, this initramfs will be empty. * In the linux26-rebuild-with-initramfs target, we retrigger a compilation of the kernel image, after removing the initramfs in the kernel sources to make sure it gets properly rebuilt (we've experienced cases were modifying the rootfs.initramfs file wouldn't retrigger the generation of the initramfs at the kernel level). This is fairly quirky, but initramfs really is a special case, so in one way or another, we need a little quirk to solve its specialness.

* New, simpler, infrastructure for building the Linux kernelGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2010-06-222-0/+251
This patch introduces a single, simple, infrastructure to build the Linux kernel. The configuration is limited to : * Kernel version: a fixed recent stable version, same as kernel headers version (for internal toolchains only), custom stable version, or custom tarball URL * Kernel patch: either a local file, directory or an URL * Kernel configuration: either the name of a defconfig or the location of a custom configuration file * Kernel image: either uImage, bzImage, zImage or vmlinux.
