Buildroot tiny rootfs has no boot folder for USB3.0 serial Gadget to be Configured LS1021a

Hi,

Recently I used

flex-builder -i mkrfs -r buildroot:tiny -a arm32    # generate arm32 little-endian rootfs as per qoriq_arm64_devel_defconfig

to generate a rootfs then after I use make ARCH=arm menuconfig to get every modules compiled

then I loaded into the linux but I found out that there is no /boot directory for me to configure the device tree file in order to make the usb3.0 works as serial gadget.

So once I loaded modprobe g_serial

it thrown me error [    0.200027] dwc3 3100000.usb3: Failed to get clk 'ref': -2

Can anyone help?

Hello Elias Bitbaker,

Please run "flex-builder -i merge-component -a arm32" to merge kernel modules into target userland.

Would you please provide your console log of inserting these Kernel modules?

Thanks,

Yiping

if you see Failed to get clk ref:-2 because I need to change this in the ls1021atwr.dtb file?

but I do not have the /boot directory when I use flex-builder -i mkrfs -r buildroot:tiny -a arm32   I manually created the folder then copied and pasted the dtb file into it but it did not work

How to add modprobe g_serial upon start up since I do not have /etc/modules file

It's impossible to use device (or Gadget) mode on LS1021ATWR, because there is a USB hub on this board.

i know but my main question is I do have a ls1021a stand alone processor, why this build root image does not have boot partition for me to configure the device tree files ?

I found out that the build root rootfs is ubuntu based.

How can I change to debian based?
