newest edison kernel

I'm new to edison (but dealing with linux for 20+ years).

What's the most recent working edison kernel?

Yocto ships with 3.10.17 -- I found a 3.10.98 on

https://github.com/01org/edison-linux.git

 

(but it didn't build cleanly -- I had to create symlinks:

include/trace/mfd_trace.h -> ../../drivers/tty/serial/mfd_trace.h

 

include/trace/sst_trace.h -> ../../sound/soc/intel/sst/sst_trace.h

 

 

but I was able to get it working.

There's a 3.19.5-WIP but I haven't been able to build it (and it doesn't seem to have a defconfig).

There's a lot of blog postings about building 4.+ but nothing seems to work.

Hi,

 

 

The latest Edison image can be found in the following link https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads. This image comes with kernel 3.10.98.

 

 

We're working on a newer kernel. This kernel will be 3.19.5, but it isn't available yet. It is being updated publically in github here: https://github.com/01org/edison-linux/commits/wip-edison-3.19.5 https://github.com/01org/edison-linux/commits/wip-edison-3.19.5

Do you still need help with this thread, did you find the information we posted useful?

Besides above you may check this thread:

Seen that -- is there a newer kernel with a .config which "does something useful" (i.e. make a binary without extra steps)?

Define "useful", please. I'm pretty sure it's still far from the features the official kernels support. Just a reminder that my work is unofficial.

I have a very low standard for "useful"

Something which compiles/links and has a working serial port (it doesn't even have to transition to user space!!)

I've build 3.10.17 cleanly and 3.10.98 (with minorproblems out of the box) -- but I can't get anything else working....

Hmm... Any kernel which has a support of Atom Z34xx SoC should work. I even don't remember what was the first upstream version to do that, perhaps 3.18?

well, a reference kernel and a reference defconfig would help -- I tried a number of 4.x and I don't see get anything output after uboot loads the kernel -- and then a reboot....

There is in the thread you told you have seen the URL is mentioned, i.e. https://github.com/andy-shev/linux/tree/eds https://github.com/andy-shev/linux/tree/eds. Try that one (either with i386_defconfig or x86_64_defconfig).
