I have downloaded and flashed linux kernel from the following location :-
(Linux 4.14.62_1.0.0_Beta )
uname -a on device gives me following result :-
Linux imx8qxpmek 4.14.62-imx_4.14.62_1.0.0_beta+g1907fe4 #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Oct 16 07:04:53 UTC 2018 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux
Now for building my modules on host machine, I have cloned linux-kernel from linux-imx - i.MX Linux kernel , and switched to branch imx_4.14.62_1.0.0_beta.
On building this kernel version, my include/config/kernel.release contains following :-
which seems correct as per git describe. I am wondering how to get kernel version like the one showing in pre-built image i.e. 4.14.62-imx_4.14.62_1.0.0_beta+g1907fe4.
I couldn't find any way to include branch name in kernel version string.
