Is compiled rootfs depends on device ?

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

Is compiled rootfs depends on device (arria, cyclon ...)?

I am not talking about u-boot or preloader, or dtb, but only about filesystem.

 

In rocketboard site, I see that there are versions binaries for compiled root filesystem per device, but in the other hand, after reviewing instructions for compiling Linux ,it seems that there is no dependency in device specific, so I am a bit confused on this matter.

 

Thanks

Hello Ran,

Rootfs is device independent. you can use any rootfs with your linux kernel. However, some rootfs packages have specific drivers, applications, packs that are compatible with a specific device. other than that, rootfs is device independent.

 

hope this might help.

 

Thank you
