Hi,

I've got an I.MX6DL under Android, I need to create a driver for it. That's why I am looking for the right git.

But there are lots of gits repos and I don't know which one is the "correct" one.

Thanks for your help.

From the user guide you can find the command line to take the right repo.

it´s something like:

repo -u http://point_to_google -b right_branch

I don´t remember the command line. Take the User Guide and follow that.

I´m sorry, I did not understand.

Are you going to develop a "kernel driver"? So you must use the "kernel git repository".

Are you going to use which Android release for your project? That one would be the desired "branch name" into git rep.

Could you, please, elaborate?

Yes I'm going to develop a driver for a camera.

Actually on the tablet I've got the r14.3 branch.

My problem is I don't really know what I need and where I have to go to get what I need.

go to <my_android>/kernel

look for other camera drivers like ov3640:

find -name ov3640*

and create your own camera driver.

Then modify the Kconfig from that folder in order to add the selection for your driver.

I´m sorry.

Are you using a imx6DL freescale board? If yes, you should go to http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=IMXANDROID&fpsp=1&tab=Design_Tools_Ta...

And donwload the file IMX6_JB422_100_ANDROID_DEMO

Open the User Guide and follow all those instructions

If you were not able to find the User Guide, download from http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=IMXANDROID&fpsp=1&tab=Documentation_T...

the file

IMX6_JB422_100_ANDROID_DOCS

I only have .patch files ... :smileysad:

How could I get all the arborescence of Android including the kernel (like this https://github.com/boundarydevices/linux-imx6/tree/boundary-imx-android-r13.2 ) ?
