Hi,

All the i.MX6 variants (i.MX6UL included) are supported by mainline Buildroot:

buildroot - Buildroot: Making Embedded Linux easy 

So you only need to download the latest stable release and you're good to go.

Buildroot - Making Embedded Linux Easy

Hi, Gary,

Sorry, Maybe I'm not clear enough.

When I talk about 'Buildroot',I really mean the OpenWRT building enviroment.

So, Is there anywhere to download the iMX6.Ul's OpenWRT building enviroment?

Regards,

Arvin

Hi Arvin,

Ok, then discard my comment, Buildroot and OpenWRT are completely different now.

As for OpenWRT, the mainline version doesn't seem to support this CPU.

openwrt/target/linux/imx6 at master · openwrt/openwrt · GitHub

Hi Arvin,

Well I'm no NXP employee so I can't help you with the sources of that demo.

I only tried to help because I maintain i.MX6 support in Buildroot.

Regarding OpenWRT, I guess you just need to update the kernel "recipe" to use the latest 4.1.15 one from NXP. But I won't be able to help you any further, good luck!

Regards,

Gary

Hi Gary,

Yes, I have checked the OpenWRT github repo, and found that doesn't support this CPU.

When I search more from internet,  Google lead me to  this content, https://community.nxp.com/docs/DOC-331175 ,

It seems that your guys has ported this CPU to OpenWRT, so that's why I'm seeking help in community.

Regards,

Arvin
