Hello,

I am kinda lost with all the kernel available for iMX6 ...

I don't find any note saying what is the kernel to use for iMX6...

I know this has been asked before however, I did not find a suitable answer.  Maybe if I ask is in different way..

There is so many git repository ...

->git://git.freescale.com/imx/linux-2.6-imx.git (so many branch on it ...)

->git://git.freescale.com/auto/linux.git (so many branch on it ...)

->git://github.com/Freescale/linux-mainline.git (so many branch on it ...)

 

So, I have downloaded:

->buildroot.git - Automotive Buildroot Tree    2015.08-rc1_s32v234_0.6

Should I use the Linux from the auto git tree?  git.freescale.com/git/cgit.cgi/auto/linux.git/

or from the Imx git? git.freescale.com/git/cgit.cgi/imx/linux-2.6-imx.git/

 

How do I tell which is the most recent stable version?  Does _ga mean stable release?  Same question applies to u-boot.  Use the one in the auto get or the imx one?  I am building for an i.mx6sx Sabre SD.

 

Thanks for your help.
