Hi,

We have got imx6D (Dual) board which is based on reference designs of Wandboard. Now, we would like to compile linux source and put Image to SD card(/boot/uImage). We are compiling linux source by:

 

export CC=`pwd`/gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-4.9-2014.09_linux/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-

 

make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=${CC} distclean

make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=${CC} wandboard_defconfig

make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=${CC}

 

 

After successful compilation, we are deploying zImage, rootfs, modules, firmware etc. and also copied respective dtb file to  (/media/rootfs/boot /dtbs/{$uname-r}/

 

and using uEnv.txt (/media/rootfs/boot/) to pass kernel parameters . Now the board completing u-boot and coming to

 

"starting Kernel and it is stucking there itself.

 

I have following Queries:

 

1. Since our board IMX6D which dts files i should take as reference to generate dtb (either imx6q or imx6dl).

 

2. Our memory technolgy is not DDR3 but it is LPDDR2. We have modified u-boot accordingly. But will it effect kernel stage also.

 

3. is there any other factors, which may be causing our board not to boot completely.

 

Please find the dts files we are using to generate dtb file.
