Is there an image with kernel version 4.1+ ?

Jump to solution

Hi,

I am trying to install a wifi module with a driver that is not included in the SDCARD image,

the driver supports Kernel 4.1+ , and my current image is "3.8.7-yocto-standart"

before I start the hassle of building my own image, is there already one out there?

Thanks!

Tamir

Hi,

I found one @ https://ostroproject.org/ https://ostroproject.org/

it is kernel version 4.1.15, the process was slick and with no problems

however I am still having problems with wifi, I think its driver related

I saw that there is a new driver for 4.3 kernel - I might try and build one with that kernel, or maybe doing a backport of that driver...

Hi TamirM,

Currently, there are two images for Galileo (EGLIBC and uClibc), however none of them has a kernel version 4.1+. Both images has the kernel version 3.8.7.

OK, thank you for your reply

also - Is it possible to build a 4.1 image to the Galileo?

As far as I know (which is not very far away, actually) you should look at the yocto project for this... I do not know if there are some specific recipe/s for Intel Galileo regarding Linux kernel versions.

Hi TamirM,

As FGT mentioned, the Yocto Project documentation is a good starting point. I also recommend you to check the following document: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/intel-galileo-boards/000006838.html BSP Build Guide for use with the Board Support Package Sources for...

I haven't seen an image for Galileo with a kernel 4.1+. In the following thread, a user posted a custom image with a kernel 3.19.8: . Also, the following threads discuss the topic of changing the kernel version, you might find them interesting:

If you decide to try to build an image with kernel 4.1+, I invite you to share your results in the community, other users might be interested in this.

Regards,

Diego
