I am going to compile kernel manually for yocto Linux environment.

1. I download recipe file from

and bitbake 3.14.28 kernel without any problem and install it to on sabre lite board.

2. Then i try to compile 3.14.28 kernel manually.

     . Install toolchain to YOCT environment

     . get linux-3.14.tar.xz source from ~/fsl-release-bsp/downloads

     .Extract it

     . go to linux-3.14 directory and run following commands

          $export ARCH=arm

          $export CROSS_COMPILE=arm-poky-linux-gnueabi-

          $make imx_v6_v7_defconfig

          $export PATH=$PATH:/opt/poky/1.6.2/sysroots/x86_64-pokysdk-linux/usr/bin/arm-poky-linux-gnueabi


          $make uImage LOADADDR=0x10008000

     . Copy images to boot partition of SD card of sabre lite device.

     $cp arch/arm/boot/uImage arch/arm/boot/dts/imx6q-sabrelite.dtb <boot partition>

All steps work fine and but have a problem with a display.

I have 2 display units (sabre lite display and HDMI monitor )

In step 1 we have display on HDMI monitor only.

In step 2 we have display on sabre lite display only.


I need to get display on HDMI monitor in step 2 .

Ultimate goal of my work is compile latest kernel and install it on SD card of sabre lite device with a  HDMI monitor.


In step 1 there are 2 Framebuffer device under /dev folder(fb0 and fb1) but in step 2 there is only one.


campier the configuration of above two steps and found that there is no "MXC support drivers setting" on step 2 configuration.

Seems that "MXC support drivers" setting is need in configuration to get display on HDMI monitor in step 2 .


How should i get MXC support drivers setting in step 2 configuration or Get display on HDMI monitor in step 2.



Thanks in advance
