BSP porting guide, u-boot-fslc, and boards.cfg

Hi all,

 

I've been trying to go through the latest BSP porting guide with imx-3.14.28-1.0.0_ga (Freescale Release BSP from git.freescale.com) and I have been having no luck. I am getting stuck at the stage where I am trying to compile U-boot for a custom board that has been created by using imx6sabresd as a template. First problem I see is that performing "bitbake core-image-minimal" pulls "u-boot-fslc" to the tmp\work\imx6qsabresd-poky-linux-gnueabi\ directory. Isn't the preferred provider setting supposed to pull in "u-boot-imx" instead? As I try to continue with the BSP porting guide, the "u-boot-fslc" seems to have been updated to not require boards.cfg, and requires the information to be input elsewhere. I can run genboardscfg.py from the tools directory in the u-boot-fslc folder, but the boards.cfg it generates gets cleaned and deleted when attempting to run a make per the build-u-boot.sh script shown in the BSP porting guide.

 

Has there been an update to u-boot-fslc that does not mesh with the BSP porting guide or am I doing something wrong?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

noovi
