I am building images for IMX6 Sabersd using Yocto. I need 3.14 kernel on the board, followed steps for building images using yocto.

 

 

    #mkdir ~/bin (this step may not be needed if the bin folder already exists)

    #curl http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo > ~/bin/repo

    #chmod a+x ~/bin/repo

    #export PATH=~/bin:$PATH

 

    #mkdir fsl-release-bsp

    #cd fsl-release-bsp

    #repo init -u git://git.freescale.com/imx/fsl-arm-yocto-bsp.git -b imx-3.14.28-1.0.0_ga

    #repo sync

    #source setup-environment build

    #bitbake core-image-minimal

 

    But it is building 3.10 kernel. Can you guide me how to get 3.14 kernel uImage.

 

    I thought using branch name as "imx-3.14.28-1.0.0_ga" during repo init will build the 3.14 kernel, because when I tried with the branch name as "imx-3.10.53-1.1.0_ga" using "repo init -u git://git.freescale.com/imx/fsl-arm-yocto-bsp.git -b imx-3.10.53-1.1.0_ga" command then it is building 3.10 kernel.

 

  Note: I am using Ubuntu 12.04 for building, I got following warning, but didn't face any issues during build time.

WARNING: Host distribution "Ubuntu-12.04" has not been validated with this version of the build system; you may possibly experience unexpected failures. It is recommended that you use a tested distribution.
